BOJ's Mizuno: Monetary Policy Outlook "Completely Open"
CHICAGO -(Dow Jones)- The Bank of Japan's rate outlook is "completely open" at the moment, but market pressures on short-term interest rates could encourage the BOJ to lift interest rates sooner than many expect, Bank of Japan policy board member Atsushi Mizuno said Monday.
Mizuno, known as one of the more hawkish members of the BOJ's board, was speaking from prepared remarks to an event sponsored by the America-Japan Society.
Mizuno warned that it might be hard to convince the government of the need for hiking rates in response to market pressures rather than in response to inflation pressures.
"We might find it difficult in such a case to win the understanding of government and market participants for a precautionary rate hike to head off an overheating in the economy or excessive rise in asset prices," said Mizuno.
The bank recently ended its policy of quantitative easing, or pumping money into the system to stave off deflation.

TTRTRates. The B o E's options just narrowed again! Time to unload BTLs and overleveraged properties and go to cash.
