The Week Ahead in Asia

The week ahead in Asia will see a raft of central bank meetings, starting off with Japan and followed by Malaysia, New Zealand, South Korea, Indonesia and the Philippines.

The Bank of Japan kicks off a two-day meeting on Monday amid some talk that it could announce some measures to curb volatility in the Japanese government bond (JGB) market.

JGB yields have risen sharply since the BOJ unveiled an aggressive monetary stimulus program in early April as traders assess what the measures mean for the market.

And in recent weeks, the volatility has spilled over into both the stock market which has pulled back from May’s five-and-a-half year peaks, and the yen which has given up some of this year’s heavy losses against the dollar.
