USD/JPY continued to strengthen, at one point extending gains above 97.15, the highest level since Jul 2009. The USD and EUR both rose above 3% in the biggest intraday move since 2008. In his confirmation hearing, the BoJ Kuroda played down any asset bubble concerns noting that BOJ cannot completely take control of the price expectations but that it was very important to influence expectations.
