Bank Of Japan To Raise The Interest Rates

Recommended Posts

http://wireservice.wired.com/wired/story.a...storyId=1159996

TOKYO (AP) -- Bank of Japan Deputy Gov. Kazumasa Iwata said Friday the central bank's super-easy monetary policy may be nearing an end amid growing signs of an economic recovery.
The remarks came as the government said the economy grew at a healthy 5.5 percent annual rate in the fourth quarter, the latest sign Japan is emerging from more than ten years of stagnation.

It seems that our own B o E has little room to lower rates against the tide of world financial opinion. Moreover, the UK's burgeoning debt mountain, now exceeding GDP, can hardly stand another cut.

Japanese economy picks up speed
Japan's exports continue to grow
Japan's economy grew at a faster pace than expected in the final three months of 2005, boosted by a pick-up in exports, official figures show.
Gross domestic product rose by 1.4% during the fourth quarter, topping market forecasts for a figure of 1.2%.
On an annualised basis, the world's second-biggest economy grew by 5.5%, the Cabinet Office reported.

The Nikkei might be where some of the City bonus money is headed, especially after the last few days of correction activity.

Yes but the UK is insulated from all this by the combined Gordon Brown/TTRTR financial reality distortion field.

Each night they make mental contact and, by the sheer power of their combined wills, stave off the effects of the world economy for another day.

Naturally this is quite a drain on precious mental energy for both of them (might explain some of TTRTR's recent posts) and those of us in this isolated island, safely cut off from the financial storm beyond our shores by their amazing powers, can only wonder how long they can manage to keep doing it.

If they should fail...... :(

the Yen really made a nose dive versus the US Dollar after GDP Deflator printed worse that expected, and pressuring the BOJ not to change their policy regarding interest rates in the near future. We should see some more upside pressure in the USD/JPY, so we are placing a buy order for a 120.00 target as early as next week.

Obviously we are seeing a continued pressure in the British Pound (GBP) but why? retail sales?. no my friends, speculation of a rate cut this year by the BOE, something I see as overextended, because we don’t know for sure if the BOE is really going to cut rates, it is only speculation, and I know what happens when the market overshoots.

The Nikkei might be suffering more from investor pullback than the GDP numbers? IMHO its time to buy stocks in Japan and the turnaround up will be as fast as the fall.

The US $ is soaring nicely and the market consensus says that US IR are going up up and away which leaves Gordon in a tight spot:

Elsewhere the dollar is being bolstered by expectations that
US interest rates will climb above 4.50 percent.
New Federal Reserve chief Ben Bernanke had on Wednesday offered an upbeat economic outlook in his testimony to Congress and reiterated that more interest rate rises might be needed because of the threat of higher inflation from a strong economy and higher energy prices.

Yes, at some stage in the not too distant future, the BoJ is going to get aggressive. These great value Yen prices won't be around forever.

Time to Spread Bet my life savings on a BOE rate increase ??????????

Suggest to anyone in 1997 that house prices would have risen so much and they would have called you a lunatic. The smart money has to be on several UK IR increases over the next 12 months.

Bank of Zimbabwe. They raised their's 3 times in one week last month.

In 2001, deflation was the name of the game.

In 2006, it is inflation.
