FOREX -Syria tensions buoy yen, Swiss franc while riskier currencies fall

Emerging market currencies tumbled, with the Indian rupee hitting a record low and the Russian rouble, the Indonesian rupiah and a host of others recording multi-year troughs. The rising tension stemming from Syria overshadowed the impact from positive data from the euro zone on the euro. The IFO German confidence survey showed business sentiment was at its highest level in 16 months but that had only a fleeting impact on the euro. “IFO beat expectations with both the current assessment and forward-looking expectations better than expected,” said Elsa Lignos, senior currency strategist at RBC Capital.” The effect was lost in the general safe haven rally, taking euro/dollar down to a low of $1.3322.” The euro was last down 0.2 against the dollar at $1.3340 while it was down 1 percent against the yen at 130.31 yen.

The FSS said it has notified the tax and customs agencies here of 43 suspicious deals in relation to possible tax-dodging. It also said it expects the number of violators to rise as it will continue to run its task force on illegal foreign exchange transactions.
