    Analysis-Japan's current account decay underscores yen's weakened stature

    Japan's current account surplus is likely to have deteriorated in August as the weak yen continues to inflate the cost of imports, casting doubt on the country's ability to amass foreign wealth and eroding the currency's prized safe-haven status. The decline comes as Japan's foreign reserves, still the world's second largest after China, slumps after the government's dollar-selling intervention last month to arrest sharp yen falls. The world's third-largest economy likely saw its current account surplus shrink to 122 billion yen ($84.15 million) in August, half July's level, according to a Reuters poll.

    UPDATE 1-Japan PM Kishida warns against sharp, one-sided yen falls

    Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said on Friday recent sharp, one-sided yen declines were undesirable, repeating the government's warning to investors against pushing down the currency too much. Japan's dollar-selling, yen-buying intervention conducted last month reflected the government's view that it cannot turn a blind eye to "repeated, excessive volatility" driven by speculative trading, he said. The comments came after the yen touched 145.04 per dollar on Friday, close to its 24-year low of 145.90 hit last month which prompted Japanese authorities to intervene.
