Euro drops 1 percent versus yen
LONDON, March 21
LONDON, March 21 (Reuters) - The euro fell 1 percent against the yen on Thursday, hurt by gloomy economic data out of the eurozone and which has kept alive risks of a prolonged recession.
The euro fell to 122.88 yen, holding just above its 55-day moving average of 122.68 yen.
The yen's gains could run out of steam with traders awaiting a news conference from new Bank of Japan governor Haruhiko Kuroda and deputy governors Kikuo Iwata and Hiroshi Nakaso.
They are widely expected to signal aggressive easing of monetary policy.
