BoJ's Fukui says exchange rate movements unsteady

Bank of Japan Governor Toshihiko Fukui said Tuesday currency exchange rate movements have become unsteady, suggesting the possibility that Japanese monetary authorities may resume intervening in the currency market.

"I believe that recent movements in the forex market have become unstable, and we will monitor closely whether these developments will have any psychological and real impact on the Japanese economy," the Japanese central bank chief told a regularly-scheduled press conference.
