“In Japan, the September Tankan release on October 1 will be watched, especially for any signs that could lead to further easing. We will be watching not only the September Tankan, but also the BoJ branch managers’ meeting and comments by both Governor Kuroda as well as other Monetary Policy Board members after that.”
