TOKYO, March 7 (Reuters) - Japan's foreign reserves
declined to $1.303 trillion at the end of February, the Ministry
of Finance said on Wednesday.	
    Japan sold about 1 trillion yen ($12.39 billion) in
"stealth" currency market intervention that was not announced to
the market during the first four days in November, the finance
ministry said last month. 	
    The undeclared forays in the currency market followed
unilateral intervention amounting to 8 trillion yen on Oct. 31
aimed at weakening the yen against the dollar. 	
    Japanese authorities did not conduct any intervention from
early November to Feb. 27.
