Bank of Japan Could Start More Easing

By November 19, 2012

Follow me on:

The Bank of Japan could buy bonds more aggressively if the government commits to lowering the world's largest public debt, according to former central bank official and possible candidate to replace Governor Masaaki Shirakawa, Nobuo Inaba, quoted in a Bloomberg article.

The suggestion comes as the yen trades at a seven-month low, putting pressure on the central bank to provide further economic stimulus. And the opposition Liberal Democratic Party that's leading in polls has already called for "unlimited easing" to end deflation.

If this magnitude of easing occurs, investors may want to consider purchasing Japanese equities or Japanese ETFs to capitalize on the gains.
