USD/JPY up to 101.20 as Kuroda Pledges to Hold Down Yields
The yen touched a four-month low as Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said he’ll do his utmost to restrict a rise in long-term yields.
“Certainly, the BOJ’s policy stance should be working towards a weaker yen,” said Sean Callow, a senior currency strategist at Westpac Banking Corp. “Higher yields in the States will surely draw more outflows from Japan, where the BOJ is maintaining QE at full pace, and is giving every indication they will continue to do so,” he said, referring to a stimulus program known as quantitative easing.
