Consequently, the Yen recovered early losses. Also, on Friday, Bank of Japan (BOJ) governor Kuroda acknowledged the possibility of a stimulus exit for the first time and that too seems to have played a role in capping the upside in the USD/JPY around 105.68.
Ahead in the day, the spot could drop to 105.00 if the trade wars escalate and equities see a deeper sell-off.
