Market participants have yet to digest the meaning of the statement from the Bank of Japan through the words that Governor Haruhiko Kuroda pronounced during press conference. The biggest change announced by Japan's central bank regards strategy: now, the Bank of Japan will introduce QE with "yeld curve control". The BoJ will no longer check the monetary base, but rates, both short and long-term, buying long-term government bond in order to ensure that the ten-year yields continue to hover around zero, then at current levels.
