Dollar Up After US Elections While Euro Weakness

The yen was also weighed down by comments from Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda, who said the central bank is ready to do more to hit its 2 percent price goal and boost the economy. Kuroda stressed the BOJ is determined to do whatever it takes to hit the inflation target in two years and vanquish nearly two decades of grinding deflation.
