Bank of Japan keeps buying bonds

Japan has started the new year the same way it ended the old one: buying #jgb. As of Sept 2022, the #boj owns almost half of the outstanding Japanese goverment debt.

The implications on the currency, the Yen, are huge and the potential domino effect on the other currencies is big as well, since it’s all interconnected. And it’s a policy that will be difficult to unwind, since the market will front run the #boj if and when they decide to reverse course.
