midday break on Wednesday, breaching above its five-day moving

    FOREIGN EXCHANGE

further easing steps from the Bank of Japan, as investors locked
in gains.

far as 113.55 yen, its lowest level since late December. It
broke below its 14-day moving average for the first time since

traded at $8,085 a tonne by 0105 GMT, almost unchanged from the
