The Bank of Japan bought 75% of JGBs in FY17… and Yields Are Still Up / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Graham_Summers

The insanity of Central Bankers knows no bounds.

The latest indication of just how far “down the rabbit hole” the financial world has gone comes from Japan where it was announced that the Bank of Japan bought 75% of Japanese Government Debt issuance in FY17.

That is not a typo. Japan’s Central Bank bought $3 out of every $4 in debt Japan issued in fiscal year 2017. And it now owns 40% of Japan’s total debt outstanding.

The Death of Abenomics; the Rise of Interest Rates / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

Job approval numbers for Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe are in freefall. Abe's support has now fallen below 30%, and his Liberal Democratic Party recently suffered heavy losses stemming from a slew of scandals revolving around illegal subsidies received by a close associate of his wife.

But as we have seen back on this side of the hemisphere, the public’s interest in these political scandals can be easily overlooked if the underlying economic conditions are favorable. For instance, voters were apathetic when the House introduced impeachment proceedings at the end of 1998 against Bill Clinton for perjury and abuse of power. And Clinton’s perjury scandal was indefensible upon discovery of that infamous Blue Dress. The average citizen, then busily counting their chips from the dot-com casino, were disinterested in Clinton’s wrongdoings because the 1998 economy was booming. Clinton remained in office, and his Democratic party gained seats in the 1998 mid-term elections.

A Cornered Bank of Japan Shocks Markets. Risk Assets Now Under Threat - Video / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Mario_Innecco

I just like to talk about the bank of japan they had a policy meeting today
like the equivalent of the FOMC for the Fed the news came out at a quarter to
midnight sorry quarter to midnight yet new york time or quarter to five a.m. london time
so it actually came out yesterday New York and today in London but that's not
the point a lot of people i think the majority of economist in Japan were expecting a big
surprise by the bank of japan in terms of in terms of lowering even more their
negative interest rates and increasing the size of QE bottom as i read here
from news headlines zerohedge for example says bank of japan shocks market shuns government pressure
leaves q we r & rates unchanged questions policy effectiveness
there's more here from investing.com yen jumps after boj easing fall short of
expectation there is a new stimulus package though the government has
announced after the meeting we've seen new stimulus package by the bank of japan and it's includes a
hundred and thirty billion dollars in fiscal measures

By: EWI

Saber-tooth tiger. Wooly mammoth. Japanese government issued bonds?

Well it's happened. After years of enduring an unrelenting bear market (marked by plunging yields and rising prices) -- the long-battered Japanese government bond has made it on to the endangered financial species list.

Variable Interest Rates World, Japan's Home Buyers Up In ARMS / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: John_Rubino

Everyone knows that Japan deeply is in debt and one way or another is going to suffer for it. But for those who thought the story couldn't get any worse, well, the creativity of the financial repressors never ceases to amaze.

It turns out that, in addition to a government that borrows way too much money at unnaturally low rates -- guaranteeing that rates can never be allowed to rise because the cost of paying even 2% interest would bankrupt the country -- Japan's homeowners have discovered the joys of adjustable-rate mortgages:

On the Verge of the Biggest Bond Market Implosion of All Time / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Graham_Summers

Japan should serve as a lesson to central planners around the world.

Japan’s stock market/ real estate bubble burst in the early ‘90s. Since that time Japan has launched NINE QE efforts equal to roughly 25% of its GDP. And GDP growth has worsened despite these efforts from 2% to 1%. Ditto for employment.

The Beginning of the End for Japanese Bonds / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Bloomberg

Kyle Bass, managing partner at Hayman Capital Management, told Bloomberg TV's Stephanie Ruhle and Erik Schaztker on "Market Makers" today that he thinks "it's the beginning of the end" for Japanese bonds. He said, "When I started sharing our views more globally it was the middle of 2010 and I said I believe the stress would begin to show itself in the next three years. Pretty much three years in, we're close, and the stress is beginning to show."

Pulling the Pin on Japanese Government Bonds Grenade / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

Japan has already suffered through a quarter century's worth of an economic malaise because they have refused to allow the free market to work its reconciliation magic. Their reliance on government borrowing and spending to rescue the economy has proven to be a miserable failure. Because of this fact, Japanese politicians have succeeded to increase the debt to GDP ratio to 237%, which should have already caused a collapse in Japanese Government Bonds (JGBs) and the Yen.

Kamikaze Monetary Policy as BOJ Prepares to Launch More Zeros / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Michael_Pento

It is an unfortunate truth that Keynesian counterfeiters with their Kamikaze monetary and fiscal policies have taken over the developed world. Politicians and central banks in the United States and Europe have decided to cement firmly in place their addictions to debt, inflation and artificially produced low interest rates. But Japan has now leapfrogged into the lead of those nations that believe prosperity can be brought about by loading up on government debt and increasing the number of zeros being printed by their central bank.

The Japanese government can afford its enormous debt because it owns the bank that is its principal creditor.  But competitors are attempting to force the bank’s privatization.  If they succeed, they could propel the country into debt servitude along with other credit-strapped nations.

S&P Slashes Japan's Credit Rating / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon Miller writes: Standard & Poor's yesterday (Thursday) reduced Japan's long-term sovereign debt rating for the first time in nine years, saying Tokyo lacked a plan to deal with its mounting debt and persistent deflation.

The agency cut Japan's rating by one notch to AA minus, the fourth-highest level, citing the country's political gridlock for undermining efforts to reduce an $11 trillion (943 trillion yen) debt burden.

Bank of Japan Goes "All In" To Stem Deflation / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: James_Pressler

In an attempt to fight off worsening deflation and prevent the economy from falling into another recession, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) announced its largest foray yet into the realm of quantitative easing (QE). It lowered its benchmark interest rate to between zero and 0.1% (effectively 0%), set up a ¥5 trillion ($59.7 billion) fund to purchase government and corporate bonds, and also created a ¥30 trillion lending facility using those assets as collateral. The breadth of such QE measures caught the market off-guard and dispelled most concerns about the BoJ being too timid in the face of another economic downturn. And yet, even though the BoJ seems to be placing its largest wager ever on the table, we cannot help but ask: Is it enough?

Bank of Japan keeps Japanese Interest Rates on hold at 0.50% / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Sarah_Jones

The Bank of Japan kept interest on hold at 0.50%, following last Februarys hike from 0.25%.

This follows recent data which showed that inflation (CPI) fell in February to 0.1%, which again raised the specter of deflation that Japan has suffered from since the early 1990's property bubble collapse.

Japan forced to keep interest rates on hold as Tokyo Warlords Hijack the Bank of Japan / Interest-Rates / Japanese Interest Rates

By: Gary_Dorsch

In an age when ruling parties of every political stripe manipulate data to promote their own self interests, there is also strong universal cynicism towards government statistics on inflation. It is natural for official inflation data to be wildly at odds with the realities of the marketplace, and regarded with utter disbelief. Nowhere on Earth is there more skepticism about inflation data than in Japan, especially after Tokyo's financial warlords rigged the core CPI last August, and shaved 0.4% off the official inflation stats with the stroke of a pen. 

That slick maneuver handcuffed the Bank of Japan from raising its overnight loan rate to 0.50% for the past four months. Tokyo was able to buy more time to keep the Nikkei-225 index afloat with a cheap yen policy, but Tokyo gold prices are now bumping against 78,000-yen /oz, just 4% shy of their 18-year highs set in May 2006, reflecting the massive amounts of monetary steroids injected by the BoJ into the Tokyo and global money markets for the past five years.
