Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda has reiterated that the BOJ will continue with its aggressive easing policy for "as long as it is necessary" to achieve its inflation goal of 2%. "It is not appropriate to say that the monetary easing will only last for two years," said Kuroda. Two years is the time Kuroda reckons it will take to reach the BOJ's inflation goal. Notwithstanding his comments, the yen is +0.4% vs the dollar at 99.40.
