MT5 international foreign exchange trading platform, recently the foreign exchange gold market is also on the rise
What is the foreign exchange market?Foreign exchange market (FOREx market) refers to the place or network where foreign exchange transactions take place.Mainly between local currency and foreign currency, foreign exchange transactions between different currencies.The foreign exchange market can be divided into two parts, namely the inter-bank foreign exchange market and the retail foreign exchange market.Interbank foreign exchange market can also be acquired as an inter-bank wholesale foreign exchange market, which is the uppermost market in foreign exchange transactions and the market for foreign exchange transactions among Banks, forming a relatively centralized foreign exchange market.In the interbank market, there is no such thing as margin trading.Retail forex market refers to the market between forex trading institutions and their clients. The most basic class in this market is individual traders, characterized by wide and dispersed distribution. The modern international foreign exchange market is generally distributed in major cities in the world, such as London, New York, Paris, Vertical, Zurich, Wellington, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong and other world-famous financial centers and foreign exchange centers. The interconnections and influence of these centers form a foreign exchange network covering the whole world.Due to time zones and time differences, such a horizontal global market is almost always open and close one after another, forming a circular 24-hour foreign exchange market.In the global market, the UK, the US, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan accounted for 77% of the global forex trading volume.At present, China's foreign exchange market is a market system centered on the inter-bank market. In the foreign exchange market, the exchange rate fluctuation refers to the exchange rate of changing currencies. The change in exchange rate is the decrease in the value of one currency and the increase in the value of another currency.A currency does not become a waste of paper, or even a dwindling currency, but it will always represent a certain value, unless the abolition of the currency is declared.You've had negative interest rates, you've had a plunge in stocks, you've had zero futures, you've had real estate, you've had a question mark as an investment hedge, and in many cases rents may not be worth the mortgage index.For domestic investors, the currency market is the most "clean" speculative market with little risk but great opportunity. Investors need not bother in the performance of each stock, futures long-short don't have to worry about both sides of the insider trading, daily turnover of huge, make any also does not have the dealer's courage, soros, buffett can learn about the information, as well as ordinary investors can learn, global investors and speculators are in the same time looking at the same price and graphics, several thousands of marketmakers network trading platform and the world millions of investors and speculators have together.
USDJPY sees most violent single day rally in over 20 years
USDJPY ripped above the previous range highs with conviction yesterday, and the vehemence of the move has caught traders unaware. There could be far more upside to come if domestic Japanese investors are losing faith in their currency.
The USDJPY move yesterday was an earthquake that deserves our undivided attention and may prove to be a starting gun for a significant expansion of market volatility [...] there were four moves of similar or larger size in the 2010-14 period, but two of these were linked directly to major Bank of Japan meetings in which Kuroda made significant policy announcements, and the other two were Ministry of Finance intervention moves against prior bouts of JPY strength.
What is promoting the JPY decline? We saw Japan printing one of its worst GDP numbers (-6.3% annualized) in Q4, an ugly data point but one that many were willing to write off as linked to the sales tax hike in October. But we also all have eyes on risks for this quarter’s numbers on the fallout from the Covid-19 virus and the risk that lingering concerns for travel and activity in general could persist for another quarter or more and thus through Tokyo Olympics, etc.
As a side note, let us recall that the Bank of Japan has been the world’s most aggressive user of QE and has grown its balance sheet to over 100% of the Japanese economy, injecting plenty of liquidity into the system, but liquidity that has largely sloshed elsewhere on parlous growth prospects domestically.
Monster trip report: 2 weeks in Japan with 2 kids in July (overview)
Overview and general information: We are a family of 4 (kids 10 and 12) who were in Japan from July 9 to July 21. I typed this up on the plane on my way home to keep the details fresh, and it got a bit out of hand. :-) The weather: we got lucky. Only one day of heavy rain, though it was often overcast and humid, with drizzle/light rain at times. It was never really all that hot in Tokyo. We had one brutal humid and 35 C day in Kyoto, but the rest of the time, the daily highs were around 24-27 C, which isn’t too unpleasant. Money: We did not change money—instead we used ATMs to withdraw yen. We have an account that does not charge extra for this. We mostly used ATMs in combinis. The fees were consistent (and we were pre-warned there would be fees at the machine before completing the transaction): 108 yen for 10,000 yen, 216 yen for anything more. When possible, we used a credit card (we have both US and Canadian cards with no ForEx fees), but many restaurants and attractions only take cash, and cash is needed to refill IC cards. Transportation: We used mostly Google Maps in cities, and HyperDia for trains between cities. We got Pasmo card upon arrival, and used them extensively. We had 7-day Japan Rail passes, which I activated in Ueno station with no wait. I brought a list of desired train reservations, and had them all done at the same time. We were unable to get reservations for desired travel times for Tokyo to Kanazawa, so we took an unreserved car. We got there about 30 min before the scheduled departure, and got 4 seats together without difficulty. Google Maps is super useful. It tells you the exit you should take when leaving each station, which is very helpful. Many train stations have a large number of exits, and taking the wrong one can lead to lots of extra walking. We also found it useful to plot both walking and public transit routes to get from place to place. The estimated costs were very accurate, and it was quite helpful to find comparable routes that use a single company’s line when possible, saving quite a bit for 4 people over many days. We walked A LOT (which is not atypical for our family). Other than that, we took trains of various sorts. We didn’t try buses, so I can’t comment there. The trains look complicated if you look at the whole system, but are actually pretty straightforward once you start using them. Internet: The free wifi in Japan is very painful to use. Slow, and requires lots of registration and re-registration. We relied on a SIM from Singapore that works well in Japan and enabled us to share out data when needed. 2 Gb was enough for a 2 week trip with lots of searching. We had a Pocket Wifi from one of our accommodations, and found it a little annoying to have to track and charge another device, but YMMV. We only stayed places that provided Wifi, so we only used the SIM when out and about. Accommodations: As a family of four, we mostly stayed in family rooms at hostels to keep costs down. All of our accommodations were great except for one (Guesthouse Kintoto in Kanazawa) because the room was sooooo tiny, it was impractical. And when I say tiny, I mean the size of two bunkbeds set less than 30 cm (6 inches) apart tiny. All of our hostels were very clean with good wifi, and all had desk staff for 12-14 hours in case we needed help with anything. There were laundry machines at all of our hostels, helping us pack light for the trip. Food: We ate breakfast from combinis almost every day, and really enjoyed the food in Japan. Our children are big eaters and adventurous eaters, so trying new foods with them is a pleasure. One of my kids was not really into ramen, but loved udon and soba, so we looked for noodle shops instead of ramen shops as our go to places to eat, especially when the kids were getting hangry. We also went to supermarkets and had picnic lunches. What the kids missed most actually was fresh fruit, which is really expensive in Japan. The kids really enjoyed using the vending machines, and going into stores to find new Japanese foods to try (especially snacks). The family favorite vending machine beverage was Melon Skal. Miscellaneous: For souvenirs, we tried to get things the kids would actually use (like Frixion pens and bento lunch boxes), though we let them use allowance to buy what they wanted. I also bought them each one pack of Pokemon cards. For ourselves, we bought a bunch of different kinds of teas and that awesome sesame salad dressing. And cool Uniqlo Gundam T-shirts. ☺ The cut-off age for kids is often elementary school vs older, which is interpreted as 11 or 12 (depending on where you are). For trains, it is 11. My 12 year old daughter is very tall for Canada, making her extremely tall for Japan. We had to show her passport at times to demonstrate her age. Part 1: Tokyo Part 2: Kanazawa and Takayama Part 3: Kyoto Part 4: Tokyo again

I'm moving to Japan and I'm interested in trading Forex for my income
I'm getting married and moving to Japan. My fiancee is Japanese and currently lives and works in Tokyo. I have a few questions about trading Forex and the feasibility of doing it full time for income. I can find a job in Tokyo easily, but I want to try this first. On to the questions.
I will have approximately $160,000.00 dollars for use. Obviously, I don't want to risk it all. I would like to know what is a reasonable goal in regards to a monthly return? Is a consistent 5% monthly return out of reach?
Living in Japan, what would be a good broker to use?
I'm currently reading Day Trading for a Living by Andrew Aziz. Besides his chatroom, are there any other recommended chatroom that are recommended?
Any other advice is much appreciated. Thanks for the help!
I'll be traveling to Philippines very soon. I live in Japan, and would like to know which of the following would be the best place (=best rates) to get PHP for my JPY: 1. Forex shop in Tokyo 2. At Haneda airport 3. At Manila airport 4. Somewhere else
How I flipped around the conventional model to recover from my school past failures… Imagine my story as if it was you and what you would have done… When I was at school, specially from 11 years old to 18, I always hated doing homework. I was very alert and conscious that I am probably living the best years of my life and I didn’t want to pass my time, precious young time, to fulfil my homework duty. Yes! Because I have seen it more like a job not being paid and always told to myself, if it was for me, I would do it, but it is more a society thing, for the parents, the teacher or other people that I didn’t care of. What I wanted to do was only enjoying my young life moments. The result of that was terrible as I had very bad scores and was almost always close to do a second year. I managed (And I still don’t understand how?!) to get my middle school certification and succeed at the exam. Maybe because I had some interests in science. This strategy had definitely found its limits there since it didn’t work in high school where I followed the scientific path but failed twice (two years in a row) on exit exams. Why? · The right mindset wasn’t there. · The cons of freedom (LoL) gave me the opportunity to do what I wanted · No real structure at school to face or identify those issues and address them appropriately. Then went to the army for a year and decided thereafter to go in the job market. My strategy was just to find a job, then evolve in the company. But it wasn’t that easy. I followed an internal training at Disney to become a leader. I gathered most of my experience there, and it is still serving me now. It is one of the best schools of management I ever been to. I would definitely suggest you to start there. The issue was the income, I was performing so well that I was earning the same as my supervisor and wouldn’t get any pay rise in the next 5 years. Lesson: · If there is no scope for the next 5 years for you, just move on! X, Z, Millennial … It doesn’t matter, that how it goes today, people don’t want to be hire and stay at the same position until retirement. People evolve or have self-promotions by getting a new job with higher responsibility. I then decided to sell apartments. It was my first experience has a business director, I was 25 years old and after I one year I wind up the company I have created. It was so tough, so dirty market, the competition was using colluding technics to keep their monopole, this with the sectors notary practices. Anyway… Lesson: · Save, save, save money before starting any business because licenses, taxes, insurances, transport, coffees with clients…etc… starts to be a lot when you are not making sales. And, it is not easy to make a sale. · Get a mentor, learn as much as you can, do some internship and ask a lot of questions to prepare your plan for the future company that you want to create. · Know your gapes and train yourself or with a professional help to tackle your. Let me explain why the title is about “Good Academic Records” I was so bad at languages, I learned Spanish and English for 7 or 8 years. But if you have red the beginning you will understand that I wasn’t also good at it because of my attitude towards school. I decided to go the Netherland where I found a job opportunity in Amsterdam. After 6 months, I was able to market, write reports, do some accounts payables and support, All in English! I then went in Spain, one week in Cordoba and another in Barcelona, I stayed with Spanish families who brought my Spanish level to the perfect fluency (some extra trips at Lloret del Mar also. But it’s been a while I didn’t use Spanish; I might need 1 or 2 weeks to regain my level). Lastly but not the least, I went for a year in Japan and learned Japanese as well, working in English, socialising in Japanese after work. I was working in the Forex market and then I worked for Abercrombie&Fitch helping them to open their first ever store in Japan (Tokyo, Ginza Store). Then everything changes and started to become interesting… A friend of mine told me a story about his uncle who wasn’t very good at school and everyone was laughing at him. He arrived to the age of around 35 years old and didn’t say anything to no one and starts studying. He surprised his all family after 7 or 8 years when they knew that he became a doctor. Now he is making more money than anyone else. This story, I didn’t believe it and tested my friend several times in different moment of life and different time. I understood that it is true. I kept it on my mind. We were unemployed on that time and struggling: My friend: I have an uncle he is a doctor in the South of France. Me: Oh! Cool, but why are you talking about him now? My friend: He’s been a very bad student and stayed unemployed for a while. Me: Hahahaha, ok! you telling me that because of our situation. Hahahaha My friend: Everyone was making fun of him, but in his back and he could guess it. Me: I hate people talking in the back of others. My friend: But you know what? One day he decided to go to the medicine faculty and secretly started studying. (in France you can study for free or almost). Me: I can guess what you are going to say, but I don’t believe you hahaha My friend: NOOoo! I swear! listen! After 8 years struggling, he became a doctor in his mid-40s and now he is super rich. And he is proud and humble. Me: Popopopo! What a story! It is impossible! My friend: No, it is possible, I witnessed it. It proves that we can make it… The power is on your hands story! Game changing for me… Big meeting with myself to reorganize everything! Same as in the picture below!..or almost (LoL) In 2013, at 31, I didn’t tell anyone around me and decided to jump into a plane, booked my hotel while flying and went one year in Australia and have seen how the environment was. I never felt like this before. It was just the perfect environment for me to restart everything. In 2014, I started a Diploma of Management learned many things, but more than everything, it was my first return to the model I hated when I was kid, but this time, it was for myself and to validate all the things I have learned in my working journey around the globe. One year after, in 2015, I graduated with high distinctions. In 2016, I decide to keep going, I started a Bachelor of Business Accounting. It was even more exiting for me and a big challenge. I managed to finish it in 2 years and half, in 2018. I was first in my promo and had a GPA of 4.6, got the Academic Excellence Award. Now in 2019, I have created my own business and I am learning, learning and learning! More and more! Always! I learn by doing. It is a test to see how good I will be this time in my business venture compare to the time when I failed in my real estate adventure for example. Good Academic Records! That was the title! The lesson is to not just give up because we all have different journey in this life. Good academic records are not crucial but can build confidence! · It is more delicious to enjoy your achievement when it is for the pleasure of learning. · Good Academic Records didn’t help my friends in general to get a better job but having a good network, Yes! · If you want to become a doctor you better study while you are still young because the story of my friend’s uncle is super pretty rare and it is time consuming study. · Nowadays, more and more companies are focusing on work experience rather than academic achievements. The sector of IT is the best example of it. · Sometimes you don’t achieve anything but some people around you do. Talk about them around you, you might influence the life decisions of your friends in a good way giving them hope and pushing them to do differently and be inspired by your story. Today I am trying something new that I always wanted to do, open my own store, I don’t think that it requires good academic records to do so as numerous examples proved that timing in life is more important than anything. I just studied at the right moment and had the chance to experience a lot. What about you? What was your path? Are you also wanting to get out of the conventional road and take risks? (I asked the question not in Reddit but didn't get anwer yet)

New stable dollar USDQ will be presented in the first half of April
New stable dollar USDQ will be presented in the first half of April https://bounty.qdao.io/ref/978-828-807 bounty links for more information https://usdq.platinum.fund https://t.me/Platinumq https://open.kakao.com/o/gfFhY2mb https://btc-alpha.com/ru/?r=190430 Exchange Tokyo, Japan, April 02, 2019 - (PR.com) is one of the largest providers of listing services, Platinum intends to launch a new stable USDQ dollar in the first half of April. USDQ will be decentralized, self-regulated and supported by Bitcoin. This feature will allow market participants to trade and make payments in popular cryptographers without worrying about volatility. Unlike conventional cryptocurrency, the prices of which fluctuate, stable coins try to keep their value around a certain asset, such as the US dollar, oil, gold and others. Since the price of stable coins directly depends on the asset's exchange rate, the volatility of stable coins is much lower than that of other cryptocurrencies. This advantage increases the interest of the population in stable coins and makes them an attractive payment tool that can be used for payments in everyday life. One of the most important functions of USDQ is its transparency, which will be provided by the scanner service. This will allow each user to track and check all transactions, wallets, transaction time, how many bitcoins are blocked for each transaction and how many of them are stored in the system. The service will record and display any movements of tokens as soon as possible, which will help owners to easily and easily manage their digital assets. Users can purchase USDQ on cryptocurrency exchanges. The value of USDQ 1 will be equal to USD 1. Traders will be able to interact not only with this coin, but also with any other. To buy stable coins, people must register a stock account and go to trade. The company plans to place USDQ on the following world leading platforms first of all: BTCNext, CoinBene, BitForex, CoinAll and BTCAlfa. The second way to get USDQ is to get a stable loan through a bitcoin collateral. To do this, the buyer must visit the company's website, apply for a USDQ loan, leave the deposit amount in bitcoins and take USDQ in the amount of USD 100. When the borrower transfers the bitcoins to the system, the smart contract prints the new USDQ and sends them to the borrower. If the user wants to take away the collateral and repay the loan, he goes through the appropriate procedure on the company's website. Bitcoins are sent to the borrower's wallet, and USDQ tokens are burned. “We strive to develop innovations in the cryptocurrency space in order to meet the demands of the cryptocurrency community. Stable coins are a key element of the market, and we firmly believe that our USDQ will be able to strengthen and stabilize the market. We are confident that our stable asset will be in demand by both new and experienced users, ”said Platinum employees. The company develops a decentralized stable asset, the transparent nature of which allows it to be independent from any banks and other financial institutions. Each USDQ token is supported by bitcoins and uses smart contracts that provide sophisticated cryptographic security. The breakthrough mechanism created by Platinum specialists will help to maintain the stability of USDQ. About platinum Platinum is an international promotion and fundraising consulting company whose goal is to promote innovations in the digital economy. The team has extensive experience in marketing and PR, management, consulting, programming, cybersecurity, education, legal advice and more. The company's mission is to make people's lives better and promote economic growth through the development of advanced products that provide reliable, secure, and unhindered access to any virtual assets.

I’m going to study in Japan in a month’s time. Will someone in Japan answer a few questions?
EDIT: Thanks for everyone who allowed me to pick there brains! I now have a much better idea of what to expect. I have a few (probably very stupid) questions. I’ve already organized VISA and that stuff. I have a lot more questions; here are some from the top of my head: A. Transport
How is the subway system in Tokyo? Can an English person navigate it?
Is it difficult to take busses?
Are Taxis expensive or fairly cheap?
Will I be able to sufficiently travel in Tokyo using only public transport?
B. Banking My problem is that in my country you cannot get a credit card if you do not work (I am still a student). This means that I will go with only my debit card – so every time I withdraw money it will be very expensive. Buying with my debit card will be even more expensive (“transaction fee” - $4 and “forex exchange fee” 1.42% of the amount).
How difficult is it for a foreigner to open a bank account in Japan? Can you do it if you are not a permanent resident?
Can you get things such as VISA/Mastercard credit cards (no transaction fee)?
Are there large banks that can help you in English?
Do they have online banking (in English).
How do you transfer money between my bank account and a Japanese bank account?
C. Phoning and Skype
Will my normal 3G phone work?
Do they have pre-paid SIM cards?
Can you buy a phone without a contract?
Can you phone from Japan (on the Internet with Skype) to a normal phone in my country (South Africa).
How expensive is it?
D. Language I am starting to learn Japanese now and will be on a 6 month intensive Japanese course when I am in Japan. Questions:
How good do they speak English? Will I be able to communicate sufficiently?
Do they understand well? Is it better than China?
If someone has already started learning Japanese, I would like a few tips on how to proceed.
E. Food & Clothes
Is it expensive?
What types of food is easy to prepare for students?
Do they have any large chain supermarkets with reasonable prices?
What type of clothing do they wear? Do students wear suits or jeans?
Are their clothes and shops expensive (should I buy here or there)?
F. Laws & culture
Are there any strange laws that I should know about?
I will add other questions here later. Thanks in advance! EDIT: formatting

Starting today, Bitcoins are an official Method of Payment in Japan and they've dropped the 8% consumption tax on buying them
This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 76%.
According to the world's largest bitcoin exchange by volume, Bitflyer, "Section 3 of this bill now includes wording on virtual currency [VC] and is being tentatively called the 'Virtual Currency Act'." It defines digital currencies including Bitcoin for the first time and recognizes them as a method of payment. Profits from bitcoin trading can be considered "Income from business activities or miscellaneous income." The asset-like nature of Bitcoin means that it is also subject to capital gains tax in Japan. Since the announcement that this law would go into effect on April 1, major bitcoin exchanges have rushed to inform their customers of upcoming new KYC procedures. DLA Piper Law Firm.The land of the rising sun has a unique history with Bitcoin that was complicated by the 2013 rise and fall of the world's leading bitcoin exchange at the time, Tokyo's MtGox. "The Japanese people had a terrible image toward bitcoin, thinking that Mt. Gox WAS Bitcoin!," explains Kagayaki Kawabata, Coincheck Business Development Lead. "However, the situation has changed in the past few years. Today, the amount of Japanese citizens who think of bitcoin as superior technology is increasing." The largest Internet Service Provider and online forex market provider has an investment in the largest bitcoin exchange, Bitflyer, and is developing an upcoming Bitcoin exchange and wallet service.
Dollar gains against yen as Bank of Japan boosts bond buying
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 67%. (I'm a bot)
TOKYO The dollar gained in Asian trading on Friday, getting a leg up against the yen after the Bank of Japan increased its purchases of Japanese government bonds in a move aimed at stemming a rise in yields. The dollar extended gains against its Japanese counterpart after the BOJ's move, rising 0.6 percent to 113.830 yen after touching a session high of 113.835 yen, its highest level since May 12. The BOJ offered to buy an unlimited amount of 10-year JGBs at yield of 0.110 percent and also increased its buying of five- to ten-year JGBs through an auction to 500 billion yen from 450 billion yen. The dollar index, which tracks the greenback against a basket of six major rivals, was 0.2 percent higher on the day at 95.947 up 0.3 percent for the week. The dollar was bolstered by higher U.S. Treasury yields which rose even after the uninspiring data, amid concerns that the U.S. Federal Reserve will begin unwinding its bond holdings sometime this year. The benchmark U.S. 10-year yield touched a nearly eight-week high of 2.391 percent on Thursday.

Asian shares bounce after losses, dollar sags on weak U.S. CPI
Asian shares bounce after losses, dollar sags on weak U.S. CPI Shinichi Saoshiro 5 Min Read Men walk past an electronic board showing market indices outside a brokerage in Tokyo, Japan, March 2, 2016.Thomas Peter TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian stocks bounced on Monday after three losing sessions, tracking a firmer Wall Street, while the dollar was weighed down by tensions on the Korean peninsula and weak U.S. inflation data which dampened prospects of another Federal Reserve interest rate hike later this year. Overall reaction was subdued to Monday's Chinese data which were generally weaker than forecast, and reinforced views that the world's second-largest economy is starting to lose a bit of steam as lending costs rise and the property market cools. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan .MIAPJ0000PUS was up 0.7 percent. The index had fallen for three straight days previously, losing a combined 3 percent, on escalating tensions between the United States and North Korea. Australian stocks rose 0.5 percent and South Korea's KOSPI .KS11 climbed 0.4 percent. Hong Kong's Hang Seng .HSI was up 0.8 percent and Shanghai .SSEC added 0.2 percent. China's factory output in July grew 6.4 percent from a year earlier, short of the 7.2 percent forecast, while fixed-asset investment expanded 8.3 percent in the first seven months against expectations for growth of 8.6 percent. Geopolitical risks were expected to remain a key theme for the global markets in the near term, as North Korea celebrates Liberation Day on Tuesday to mark the end of Japanese rule. Investors also braced for tensions ahead of Aug. 21, when an annual joint U.S.-South Korean military exercise is due to begin. "Due to caution towards a further escalation in tensions over North Korea, U.S. yields and equities are expected to decline and the yen is likely keep appreciating this week," said Masafumi Yamamoto, chief forex strategist at Mizuho Securities in Tokyo. Japan's Nikkei .N225 bucked the trend and fell 1 percent as a stronger yen overshadowed much better-than-expected second quarter economic growth. The three major U.S. stocks indexes snapped three days of losses and ended higher on Friday, as investors bet on slower U.S. rate hikes following weaker-than-expected consumer price data. But gains were muted by increasingly aggressive exchanges between Washington and Pyongyang. [.N] U.S. Treasury yields, which already declined on the North Korean concerns, fell further on Friday on the soft U.S. consumer prices data. The benchmark 10-year Treasury yield US10YT=RR touched 2.182 percent on Friday, its lowest since late June, before pulling back a little to 2.204 percent on Monday. Friday's data showed the U.S. consumer price index edged up just 0.1 percent last month after it was unchanged in June. Economists polled by Reuters had forecast the CPI rising 0.2 percent in July. The dollar index against a basket of six major currencies was flat at 93.076 .DXY after it slipped about 0.4 percent on Friday. The greenback traded slightly higher at 109.370 yen JPY= after slipping to 108.720 on Friday, its weakest since April 20. The yen tends to gain in times of geopolitical tension on expectations that Japanese investors will repatriate assets. It also showed little reaction to second-quarter gross domestic product data which revealed that the economy expanded for a sixth straight quarter led by private consumption and capital expenditure. While growth was faster than expected, it is not expected to nudge the Bank of Japan into dismantling its massive stimulus program any time soon, as inflation remains stubbornly weak. The euro was 0.1 percent higher at $1.1824 EUR=. Crude oil prices edged down after rising slightly on Friday on lower U.S. crude stocks, instability in major producer Nigeria and strong global demand growth. [O/R] U.S. crude CLc1 was down 2 cents at $48.80 a barrel and Brent LCOc1 was 7 cents lower at $52.03 a barrel. Gold hovered near a two-month high, benefiting from the U.S.-North Korean tensions and Friday's weak U.S. inflation data. The dollar's recent weakness was also seen to be helping gold. Spot gold XAU= was a shade lower at $1,287.51 an ounce after reaching $1,291.86 on Friday, its highest level since June 7. Other precious metals such as silver XAG= and platinum XPT= were also buoyant. Reporting by Shinichi Saoshiro; Editing by Lisa Twaronite and Kim Coghill
Dollar hits two-week high vs yen on U.S.-Japan summit relief
This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 59%.
TOKYO The dollar rose to a two-week high versus the yen on Monday, with the market breathing a sigh of relief as the closely watched two-day U.S.-Japan summit held over the weekend was seen to have ended smoothly. The dollar index against a basket of major currencies was up 0.15 percent at 100.930.DXY, close to a near two-week high of 101.010 reached on Friday when pledges of "Phenomenal" tax reforms by Trump had boosted the greenback. The dollar was up 0.65 percent at 113.920 yen JPY=, briefly touching 114.170, the highest since Jan. 30. "There is relief that the summit ended without confrontation, and that the joint statement did not directly touch upon currency issues," said Masafumi Yamamoto, chief forex strategist at Mizuho Securities. "While the outcome of the U.S.-Japan summit itself is not a huge dollar boosting factor, the currency continues to receive firm support from expectations towards Trump's 'phenomenal' tax plans," Yamamoto said. "The RBNZ has clearly knocked the New Zealand dollar lower. However, we still find it difficult to get overly bearish given a still solid economic picture," wrote Philip Borkin, senior economist at ANZ. The Australian dollar was little changed at $0.7671 AUD=D4 after surging 0.7 percent on Friday on upbeat Chinese trade data and an optimistic economic view given by the Reserve Bank of Australia.
Japan's top currency official rejects Trump devaluation claims
This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 67%.
TOKYO Japanese policymakers hit back at U.S. President Donald Trump's accusation of currency manipulation on Wednesday, stressing that Tokyo was abiding by a Group of 20 agreement to refrain from competitive currency devaluation. The dollar was on the defensive after Trump and trade adviser Peter Navarro criticized China, Germany and Japan, saying they were devaluing their currencies to the disadvantage of the United States. Japan would "Seek to communicate closely" with the new U.S. administration on trade, economic and currency matters, Suga added. "As Bank of Japan Governor Kuroda has said repeatedly, Japan's monetary policy aims to achieve the domestic purpose of ending deflation. It's not aimed at currency rates," Asakawa, vice finance minister for international affairs, told reporters. Finance Minister Taro Aso will explain Japan's stance on currencies and monetary policy when he joins Abe at next week's meeting with Trump, a senior government source told Reuters. Japanese policymakers have argued that the BOJ's ultra-easy monetary policy is solely aimed at beating deflation and did not go against a Group of 20 agreement to refrain from using monetary policy for currency devaluation.

This is an automatic summary, original reduced by 31%.
Japanese software developer Forex Robotics Corporation has announced it's developing a trading application for Pepper, a 4ft-tall humanoid robot engineered by French robotics firm Aldebaran and SoftBank Group, a Tokyo-based IT conglomerate.

Japanese yen in trading account, zero forex knowledge...help?
Hello! First I have very limited to no knowledge on forex trading. I worked in Tokyo Japan for a period of 6 months and bought into stock for the company I for which I worked.

Suggestions? Forex for dummies? The rate was 100:1 roughly and has since blown to 122:1 (if done in trading account) could anyone give some forecast advice or at least point me in a direction? I would like to avoid heavy loses on a decent stock move. Thank you
