Dollar slips against yen

The dollar has fallen to a two-week low against the yen on the back of the latest global trade war concerns.

The Wall Street Journal reported that the US Treasury Department is putting together rules that would block firms with at least 25% Chinese ownership from buying US companies involved in “industrially significant technology”.

Markets react to US jobs numbers

The US share markets will open in about half an hour. Signs are they will open about 1% lower. Jobs growth was on the disappointing side - markets expected almost double the 103,000 new jobs - and wage growth was a bit faster than expected.

The dollar fell a tiny bit against the yen in the wake of the jobs announcement. It is now down 0.07% against the Japanese currency at 107.35 yen.

Meanwhile the pound is up a little against the dollar at 1.4017.
