Despite the Bank of Japan resolutely sticking to its policy of negative interest rates and yield curve control in 2022, might it about to change course asks Jamie Dannhauser of Ruffer LLP?

So far in 2022, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) has resolutely stuck to its policy of negative interest rates and yield curve control (YCC), despite the dramatic hawkish shift from the US Federal Reserve (the Fed) and, more recently, the yen’s nosedive. Might the BoJ be about to change course?
