Bank of Japan buy JGBs

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: Central Banks

BOJ buying JGBs:

  • 250 bn yen 1 – 3 year maturity
  • 350 bn yen 3 – 5 yrs
  • 400 bn yen 5- 10 yrs

This is more buying from the BOJ as part of their massive easing program announced in early April.

ps. As I type, USD/JPY is making another attempt at 99.00, but that level still has (barrier) option-related selling defending it. I’m punting that the dam breaks and we get through 99.00
