The usual presser by Kuroda following the BOJ policy meeting earlier


The main talk of the town is the Fed but yes, there was a BOJ policy meeting earlier in case you missed it. There were no major changes besides an increase to its stimulus programme to help deal with the virus fallout from ¥75 trillion to ¥110 trillion.

I wouldn't expect Kuroda to deviate much from the script as per usual. So, expect him to reiterate their stance of continuing with powerful monetary easing and a pledge that they can do more if necessary and that they "have the tools" to do so as well.
