EU Market View
Asia-Pac bourses traded with firm losses amid spillover selling from the tech-led declines on Wall St. US Senate Republicans reportedly signalled that they could increase the infrastructure counter proposal to President Biden.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop?
