    EUR/JPY came under renewed pressure and extended intraday losses as the euro weakened across the board following the ECB meeting minutes.

    ECB minutes showed that the members believe risks to economic outlook are on the downside and have increased since December and a point was made regarding preference to make a pre-emptively act to counter downside risks.

    The shared currency suffered against increasing expectations the ECB prepares to make a move in March, with EUR/JPY falling to a 1-week low of 126.11. At time of writing, the pair was trading at 126.18, recording a 0.75% loss on the day
