The euro was 1 euro = 1.1915 to 16 dollars against the dollar.
Market officials said, "While the outlook for when the US will lift the zero interest rate policy has been advanced, it will take some time before the actual rate hike, so the US long-term interest rate has fallen, so we sold the dollar. The move to buy the yen was predominant. After the Japan Bank's monetary policy decision meeting, a press conference was held by Governor Kuroda, but the impact of his remarks on the exchange rate was limited. "
