The Japanese yen strengthened against its major counterparts in the early European session on Monday, after the Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda remarked that the Japanese economy has escaped deflation and the central bank would discuss and convey its exit strategy from stimulus plan at appropriate time.
The economy is maintaining momentum in order to attain the BOJ's price target, Kuroda told parliament.
"To ensure markets remain stable, it's important to come up with a strategy and guidance at an appropriate timing on how to proceed with an exit," Kuroda said.
"When the appropriate time comes, we will debate at our policy meetings an exit strategy and guidance, and communicate them appropriately," he added.
