BoJ to maintain their current framework - BAML

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch feel the Bank of Japan will maintain its policy framework at its 3-4 September policy meeting.

Key Quotes:

“In light of BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda's 22 August remarks in Jackson Hole, we expect the BoJ to stick to its expectation that growth and prices will improve from July-September onward, based on solid growth in workers' compensation and corporate earnings and the 1.3% YoY increase in the core CPI (excluding the effects of the consumption tax hike) in July, an increase that was in line with the BoJ's expectations."

"High expectations for the US economy have led to some yen depreciation, and stock prices have been firm. Although the Ukraine situation and other geopolitical risks still warrant caution, the outlook for Japan's growth and prices is not affected much at this point, in our view. We believe the BoJ accordingly has little urgent need to take additional policy action at the upcoming meeting."
