The Bank of Japan will keep the frequency and scale of JGB purchases unchanged in May from the previous month, with bank officials comfortable that the conditions for market 'flexibility' are currently in place.
The frequency of operations for JGBs with a remaining life of 1 to 3 years, 3 to 5 years and 5 to 10 years was left at four times each and the frequency of JGB buying operations with longer-end was left at one, having already scaled back in April. The BOJ continues to announce a specific amount to be purchased for each bucket of operations in May, instead of a broader range in March.
