“Last week, the BoJ announced twice that it would buy an unlimited amount of bonds. The last one on Friday was conducted when the 10-year JGB yield hit 0.10%. However, there has not been a bond purchase announcement this morning despite 10-year yields being marginally above the 0.10% yield level target.”

“We still hold the view that the BoJ will not change the yield target this week, as the risk of a stronger JPY would be clearly counterproductive for it to reach the inflation target. That said, a policy adjustment (fine-tuning) in Q3 has increased significantly.”
