The BOJ also kept intact its forward guidance – or a pledge central banks make on future monetary policy – that commits to keeping current ultra-low interest rates “for an extended period of time, at least through around spring 2020.”
The decision on maintaining its interest rate targets was made by a 7-2 vote, with board members Goushi Kataoka and Yutaka Harada dissenting.
