More change to YCC by the April meeting
“We expect more change to YCC by the April meeting under a new Governor, which is expected to be named next week.”
“What is clear is that Japanese investors will not be able to invest in foreign bond markets on a hedged basis as they have in the past. The cost in doing so is far too punitive.

“We continue to see 120-125 as a target in USD/JPY in the next couple of months.”
