Bank of Japan remains stubborn, USDJPY skyrockets.

17-06-2022 09:36

“Bank of Japan to monitor currency market moves that could have significant impact on their economy and import prices.”

Bank of Japan stood firm against aggressive policy tightening, deepening the divergence between Japan and its peers. After ending their two-day policy meeting, the central bank maintained its target rate at -0.10% and offered to purchase unlimited amount of 10-year bonds. BoJ caught in a dilemma as Japan’s inflation is well below its Western peers. However, an extended period of loose policy triggered rapid depreciation of Japanese Yen, triggering an up rise in fuel and raw material price which are heavily imported by the economy.
