Please note, these are the Minutes of the October 6-7 Bank of Japan (BOJ) meeting, after which the BOJ announced no changes. its not the Minutes of the October 30 meeting, from which the BOJ announced additional easing.

As such, these Minutes are interesting (maybe we’ll get an inkling of how Kuroda schmoozed other board members ahead of of the October 30 meeting) … but the real interesting ones will come in a few weeks time when we get last Friday’s minutes.
