No change from BoJ expected - BBH

FXStreet (Guatemala) - Analysts at BBH explained that they do not expect a change from BoJ next week.

Key Quotes:

"Japan's trade balance was worse than expected in September. It posted a JPY114 bln deficit. A small surplus was expected. Exports rose a mere 0.6% compared with expectations for a 3.8% increase. In volume terms, exports have fallen nearly 4%.

It is hard to see how so many people think a 3.5% decline in the Chinese yuan will help boost their exports while a much larger decline in the yen has failed to boost the volume of Japanese exports.

It is also noteworthy that the volume of Japan's oil imports rose 1.1%, despite the weakness in the domestic economy. In value terms, oil imports are off 44%. These trade figures do not alter our expectation that the BOJ stands pat next week."
