Japanese Yen Little Moved on Status Quo BoJ, Markets Await Kuroda

Japanese Yen Little Moved on Status Quo BoJ, Markets Await Kuroda

Talking Points:

  • Bank of Japan leaves monetary policy unchanged as forecasted
  • The Japanese Yen was little moved against its major companions
  • Governor Kuroda will present a follow-up speech in a few hours

See how the Japanese Yen is viewed by the trading community at the DailyFX Sentiment Page.

The Japanese Yen showed a typical response to a status quo Bank of Japan monetary policy announcement. As expected, the currency failed to move much.

The central bank left the main lending rate and 10-year yield target unchanged at -0.10 percent and 0.00 percent respectfully. In addition, the bond purchasing program continues to chug along at an annual pace of JPY80 trillion.

Policy members voted 8-1 for this outcome with board member Goushi Kataoka dissenting the decision. Kataoka said that the yield curve effect is not enough for the inflation target and that there is a low chance of CPI increasing to 2% from 2018 on.

With that in mind, the markets will likely turn to Governor Haruhiko Kuroda’s follow-up speech at 6:30 GMT later today for more details. Perhaps he might have a comment or two on the most recent inflation figures which saw the core index at 2015 highs.
