“It was necessary for the BOJ to strengthen its policy commitment by relating the forward guidance for policy rates to price targets.”

“Hard to foresee inflation approaching 2% given pace of economic recovery will be modest.”

“BOJ will take additional easing steps without hesitation with an eye on pandemic impact, including re-extending credit programmes.”

“Expect Japan's price growth to stagnate for a prolonged period of time.”

“Personally, believe the BOJ must strengthen easing via YCC, policy commitment.”

“At the March review the BOJ must examine and explain its policy strategy taking into account a lack of prospect for achieving its price target.”
