Tuesday saw the Japanese yen rise against the world's reserve currency as a deputy chief nominee for the central bank of the Pacific Rim nation who is believed to be friendly to monetary stimulus policies was forecast to face political challenges, according to Bloomberg.
Kikuo Iwata was nominated by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who has implemented stimulus policies since winning the leader slot this past December. The Democratic Party of Japan is likely to mount challenges that might not be enough to preclude the nominee's confirmation.
Bank of Japan president nominee Haruhiko Kuroda, appearing before the upper house of Japan's parliament for confirmation hearings, emphasized pushing past deflation and noted he intends to leave all options on the table to address that task, according to The Wall Street Journal.
"Anything could happen," chief manager of forex and financial products trading Tsunemasa Tsukada with Mitsubishi UFJ Trust and Banking Corporation told The Wall Street Journal on Tuesday. "We don't know what is going to happen until it happens."
Bloomberg reports the yen increased a minimum of 0.3 percent against all 16 of its top rival monetary units during the Tuesday trade session.
