BOJ
BOJ: A couple of desks are flagging rumours of potential cuts to the size of the
BoJ's 10-25 Year Rinban operations today, but this is unlikely in our view.
- Kuroda's recent round of rhetoric re: 20- & 30-Year yields, coupled with the
dynamics in core global FI over the last few sessions has promoted some
steepening of the JGB curve, with 10-Year yields now back above -.20%, just.
- Focus should fall on next week's BoJ decision with whispers re: the potential
of further easing doing the rounds in recent weeks. Our own understanding is
that the BoJ certainly hopes that it can refrain from policy easing next week,
as there is a belief it needs to keep its powder dry in case there is a greater
slowdown in the economy in Q4 as domestic demand slows down after the October 1
sales tax hike.
