Goldman Sachs discusses its expectations for this week's BoJ policy meeting.

  • "We expect the BOJ to maintain the status quo across all monetary policy parameters — yield curve control (YCC), asset purchase programs, and forward guidance (with respect to policy rates) — at its September 21-22 monetary policy meeting (MPM),"
  • "We also expect the BOJ to confirm that the repeatedly extended special COVID-19 financing program will be wound down at the end of September, as scheduled," GS adds.
