BOJ: MNI INSIGHT:BOJ To Mull Lower Rates, Lending Facility, Message
- The BOJ is considering sending its strongest message yet that it will
stabilise financial markets and provide ample support to the real economy, MNI
understands. Alongside a stronger statement, the BOJ could examine lowering
short-term rates to help lower lending costs to the real economy, moving to
target shorter-dated yields on the curve, perhaps in the 3-to-5 year sector. If
the BOJ did move to ease further, it will be a boon for borrowers, but a problem
for commercial banks already suffering from low margins and lower rates will
further squeeze profitability.
