The Bank of Japan's markets operations department could publish its April bond buying schedule on the same day as the Board's policy decision and strategy review are released, MNI understands.

The publication would come almost a fortnight earlier than the normal last trading day of the month and could clarify any change in the operations schedule but also reduce the risk of financial market destabilization ahead of the March 31 fiscal year end.

At present, the markets department conducts bond buying within the framework of the Board's policy decisions and there remains a possibility that the directive could be amended following the publication of the BOJ's review of policy strategy, which will likely include comments on JGB functionality, liquidity and volatility
