In Japan, interest rates are set by the Bank of Japan's Policy Board in its Monetary Policy Meetings. The BoJ's official interest rate is the discount rate. Monetary Policy Meetings produce a guideline for money market operations in inter-meeting periods and this guideline is written in terms of a target for the uncollateralized overnight call rate.

Latest Updates

The Bank of Japan has no preset idea on whether to ease monetary policy when it meets next month, but policymakers are more keen to act than before since overseas risks are heightening, Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said in a speech at a meeting with business leaders in Osaka. Still, any decision would depend on financial markets movements and risks regarding overseas economy, he added, with possible measures for monetary easing including cutting the short-term policy interest rate, lowering the target level of 10-year Japanese government bond (JGB) yields, expanding asset purchases, and accelerating the expansion of the monetary base.
