    Asian financial markets were unsettled on Wednesday by North Korea's claim on Tuesday that it had fired its first intercontinental ballistic missile, which prompted South Korea and the US to conduct joint missile exercises.

    World's top industrialised democracies to meet at G7 Ise-Shima summit

    Nikkei Asian Review
    Over the four decades since its inception in 1975, the G7 summit of advanced industrial nations has evolved into a valuable global institution – especially for Japan, the only non-Atlantic member.

But that doesn’t mean Tokyo is all out of options, especially with the BoJ set to begin its two-day meeting on Wednesday. Nevertheless, apparent international, and specifically US, objections to overt market activity by the Tokyo authorities to weaken the Japanese currency has significantly raised the bar for Japan’s Ministry of Finance if it was contemplating ordering the BOJ to intervene to sell the yen on currency markets.

    Steen's Chronicle: The narrative is changing
    Until very recently, it seemed as if central bankers and global policymakers were reading from the same sheet, upon which was printed the familiar mantra of low currencies and lower interest rates. Now, however, it seems as if this is beginning to change. Why might that be?
