The Surprising BoJ Statement That Will Make You Gasp

The Surprising BoJ Statement That Will Make You Gasp

Bank of Japan Has Its Own Agenda

The Bank of Japan disappointed markets with its additional easing. The BoJ is seen to be too hesitant and its move actually follows the EBC and BoE recent decisions to hold off easing.

It seems that BoJ may want more help from government in terms of the stimulus and the Bank is not prepared to do anything in advance.

Market reactions were mixed. On the one hand we have noticed huge gains on the yen which is up by 1.6% against the US dollar. On the other hand Nikkei 225 has rebounded from intra-day low which was appointed a few minutes after the BoJ announcement.

Another interesting fact is a rebound of Japanese bond yields. The yield on 10-year JGBs has increased to negative -0.18% from -0.28%. Treasuries climbed 5 bp which was the highest gain since 2012.
