MM Analysis
The NI225 dropped by almost 1.5% followed by the BOJ's announcement of scraping the ¥6tn guideline and widending the trading bond of 10-year JGB. While we believe, the BOJ's recents move attempted to conduct the Yield Curve Control (YCC) policy more flexibily, keep an eye on the inflation!
