SEOUL, July 2 South Korea's government and
central bank expressed concerns on Wednesday over one-sided
trading in the foreign exchange market after the Korean won
firmed through a critical level against the U.S. dollar
in early trading.
The won hit as high as 1,009.3 per dollar by 0148
GMT, the strongest since July 31, 2008.
The joint statement from the Ministry of Strategy and
Finance and the Bank of Korea also said foreign exchange
officials were closely observing institutions and offshore
traders' trading patterns for unusual movements.
