The BoJ will continue to conduct JGB buying in a flexible manner, still targeting an annual accumulation pace of ¥80 trillion.
The BoJ intends to maintain low rate levels ahead of next year’s sales tax hike.
ETF and REIT purchases may fluctuate.
The BoJ will be taking steps to reduce the balance of reserves with negative rates.
Market operations will have forward guidance applied to them, as well as asset purchases.
BoJ will continue to monitor risks to economic conditions from monetary policy, as well as any adjustments.
The BoJ will buy JGBs “promptly and appropriately” if yields climb too high, too fast.
