In answer to parliamentary inquiries, Ueda stated that the bank might hike interest rates if inflation expectations grow. He reiterates his belief that a rapid and one-sided devaluation of the yen is undesirable and detrimental to Japan’s economy.

Oil edged up following a mixed assessment of US stockpiles, which featured an unexpected decline in countrywide crude reserves.
