TOKYO (Reuters) – Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said on Tuesday it was premature to debate an exit from ultra-loose policy including how to whittle down its massive holdings of exchange-traded funds (ETF).

“Given recent price developments, we need to patiently maintain our powerful monetary easing. That means we’re not in a stage to comment on an exit strategy including the fate of our ETF holdings,” Kuroda told parliament.
