The reactions to today's 'as expected' announcement from the Bank of Japan are coming.
More from Bloomberg:
- The Bank of Japan kept its record stimulus unchanged on Wednesday amid growing speculation that signs of a recession will press it to act at the end of the month.
- kept monetary policy steady on Wednesday, preferring to save its limited options while hoping that a tight job market will lift wages and consumption enough to offset the pain from China's economic slowdown
- forty two per cent of economists surveyed by Bloomberg believe the BoJ will add to its already huge bond-buying programme later this month, after a meeting on October 30.
