Bank of Japan boosts bond interventions


The Bank of Japan announced a further set of buying operations today (June 14) after yields came under continued upward pressure. 

In a set of previously unscheduled purchases, the central bank said it will offer to buy longer-dated debt, after the 30-year yield hit 1.28%.

On June 15, the BoJ will offer to buy ¥150 billion of bonds ($1.1 billion) with more than 25-year maturities. The central bank will also offer to buy ¥250 billion of 10–25 year Japanese government bonds.
