Usd/jpy - 92.75 ... U.S. weekly jobless claims came in at 565,000, better than economists' forecast of 605,000 n upwardly revised 617,000 in the previous week. However, investors cited that the number will likely be distorted due to the timing of shutdowns at auto plants. The greenback weakened against the Japanese yen to 92.52 on renewed risk aversions due to the retreat in U.S. stock markets (Dow Jones index pared early gains n turned negative). Offers are reported at 93.10/15 n 93.45/50 whilst bids by Japanese names are noted at 92.50/55, 92.20/30 n more at 92.00.
