Nikkei index is down -0.89% from yesterday's close, last at 11161 points, off session lows near the 11000 points where it started the day following a gap down at the open.

Yen is still weakest currency among majors, despite recent recovery higher in last 12 hours since late London session, back again showing weakness across the board.

To the downside, nearest term support lies at recent weekly lows 91.96, followed by Friday's NY session lows at 91.79, and Wednesday's highs at 91.38.
