[JPY] Japan Preview: BoJ to stay the course

[JPY] It is a busy week for central bank policy meetings. The Bank of Japan's monetary policy meeting is scheduled for Thursday (October 29). We don't expect major policy changes this time. The policy balance rate is expected to hold at -0.1%, the 10-year JGB target is likely to remain 'around' 0% (defined roughly as +/-20bps around this target) and the purchase programmes are expected to remain unchanged. The BoJ will also release fresh economic forecasts, which might be revised downwards as global Covid-19 cases trend higher again.

[USD] US Bond Strategy for October 27

[USD] Treasuries saw further upward pressure across the curve on Tuesday, alongside a pullback in equities, as markets largely shook off a relatively solid run of US economic data, highlighted by further gains in durable goods orders and S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller, alongside little change in Conference Board consumer confidence. Overall, the 10Yr Note yield decreased -3bps towards the 0.78%-mark. Markets now await a lighter flow of data on Wednesday, highlighted by wholesale inventories, followed by a 5Yr Note auction later in the session.
