The Bank of Japan has left monetary policy unchanged at its latest meeting. It will keep buying assets at the current pace of around ¥ 80 trillion a year. However, it has pushed back its target date for achieving 2% inflation to “around fiscal 2019″. The ECB has also left its interest rates and bond purchase programme unchanged. ECB President, Mario Draghi, said the central bank would review monetary accommodation in the autumn. That has sent the Euro to a 14-month high against the USD.
