BOJ to support the JPY?
What will happen?
BOJ shares its interest rate and monetary policy on March 19.
Bank of Japan is likely to keep the rate steady at -0.1%. Last time, the Bank revised the earlier projections of the yearly GDP growth rate (fiscal year April 2021 – April 2022) of 3.6% to a higher mark of 3.9% reflecting effective government measures against the virus fallout. In 2020, the Bank increased its quantitative easing through wider asset-buying and other measures adding that it would be standing by to further assist the economy if needed.
