- The Bank will not conduct Rinban operations in the 1-3, 3-5, 10-25 & 25+ Year
buckets on the day that follows a JGB auction with a tenor that corresponds with
a particular bucket e.g. it will not buy 2-Year paper the day after 2-Year paper
is auctioned by the MoF.
- The BoJ said it "may increase the frequency as needed" and "will conduct
purchases in a flexible manner, taking account of market conditions."
