The Japanese yen traded mixed against the U.S. dollar. The Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said at the annual meeting of the National Association of Shinkin Banks in Tokyo on Friday that Japan's economy has continued to recover moderately and the easing would continue until the 2% inflation target was reached. He added that the BoJ could make adjustments to hit the 2% target if required.
Mr. Kuroda pointed out the BoJ could introduce additional stimulus measures should Japan's economic activity and prices deviate from the baseline recovery scenario.
