Relays market will register an incremental spend of about USD 9 billion, growing at a CAGR of 6.34% during the five-year forecast period
(Bloomberg) -- The Bank of Japan sees a more volatile recovery path ahead as rising waves of the coronavirus abroad cloud the recovery outlook and spark renewed nerves in markets.The BOJ cut its growth forecast for the current year while keeping its key interest rates and asset purchases unchanged, according to a statement from the central bank Thursday. Amid the heightened uncertainty over the outlook the central bank said it was ready to take further action if needed. All but one of 43 surveyed economists forecast a stand-pat decision.The bank now sees the economy shrinking 5.5% in the year to March from a 4.7% drop forecast previously, citing a delayed recovery in the services sector. It raised its growth projection for the following year to 3.6%, suggesting a wider gap between recession and recovery.The decision and forecast changes come with the risks for Japan’s export-reliant economy increasing as the virus surges again in the U.S. and Europe. A return to partial lockdowns in some parts of Europe and the prospect of an even more prolonged pandemic are helping fuel stock market falls and further yen gains.The Japanese currency was trading largely unchanged at 104.48 against the dollar following the decision, while stocks continued to pare earlier losses following the overnight tumble on Wall Street.The yen this week strengthened to a five-week high against the greenback amid concern over the impact of the worsening pandemic on global economic activity. The Nikkei 225 stock index was down around 0.3% at 2 p.m. local time after gaining ground at the start of the afternoon trading session, with the improved growth forecast for next year possibly helping support sentiment.The decision to hold policy despite the heightened uncertainty likely reflects continued signs of a recovery in Japan from its record contraction as production and exports improve. The central bank also has little extra fire power to stimulate the economy, with an extension of its existing virus-response measures seen by many economists as its most likely next move.The BOJ’s ramped-up asset buying has helped keep markets relatively stable while around $1 trillion in loan programs has ensured struggling firms can access credit rather than going bust. The measures are currently set to expire at the end of March, having already been extended by six months.“I’m not sure if the BOJ really needed to cut its 2020 GDP forecast this much. Monthly data suggest growth won’t be terrible from here,” said Yoshimasa Maruyama, economist at SMBC Nikko Securities. An extension of the lending programs will be the likely focus of any further moves, he said.“A deeper negative rate is out of the question when the financial system is hurting more during a slump,” he added.What Bloomberg’s Economist Says“While the reflation effort is on the back burner for now, the central bank continues to face serious challenges, with the economy still struggling from the virus impact and recent readings on core inflation below zero.”\--Yuki Masujima, economistClick here to read more.The decision comes just hours before the European Central Bank is set to deliver its own policy decision. The ECB is expected to hold fire, while signaling more stimulus in the works to combat the impact of the virus’s recent spread, though speculation is growing that it may move early.While Japan has had far fewer virus cases than many other developed countries, the surge in Europe and the U.S. casts a shadow over the outlook, despite the relative success of policy makers in propping up the economy. The number of bankruptcies is actually down from last year and the jobless rate has remained low at 3% for now.On inflation, the bank trimmed its forecast for this fiscal year, citing the impact of government-sponsored discounts on travel packages to help regional economies and the tourism industry.Inflation is running far below the BOJ’s 2% target, but the bank’s priorities now are keeping credit lines open to companies and maintaining market stability. The BOJ said the government’s travel subsidies was a factor behind the lowering of its price forecast for this fiscal year, citing a likely 0.2 percentage point downward impact on this year’s inflation data.“What’s missing here is a discussion over how they are going to achieve the price target,” said Hiromichi Shirakawa, chief Japan economist at Credit Suisse Group AG and a former BOJ official. He also flagged the possibility of trouble ahead if the yen continues to appreciate given the BOJ’s lack of additional policy tools.(Adds economist comments.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

Germany and France are imposing stricter lockdowns, while Italy, Spain and the U.K. all reported record case numbers on Wednesday.“Market sentiment is turning with investors buffeted by U.S. election uncertainty and now economic worries from rising Covid-19 cases across Europe, sparking concerns that measures to control the virus will hamper economic activity,” said Kerry Craig, global market strategist at JPMorgan Asset Management. “These short-term forces are well beyond the control of individual investors, underscoring the need to maintain balance through the immediate uncertainty, but investors should stay focused on the longer-term economic recovery, which still looks solid.”Elsewhere, the pound steadied as European Union and U.K. negotiators made progress toward resolving some of the biggest disagreements, raising hopes that a Brexit deal could be reached by early November. The European Central Bank’s policy decision is due later Thursday, with the new coronavirus lockdowns by the euro zone’s biggest economies boosting the chance of preemptive monetary stimulus.These are some events to watch this week:Bank of Japan and the European Central Bank briefings from Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and President Christine Lagarde will follow policy decisions on Thursday.The Chinese Communist Party’s Central Committee holds its plenum through Friday, where it’s expected to chart the course for the economy’s development for the next 15 years.Brexit negotiating teams have started intense daily talks, and these are likely to continue as both sides push to finalize a deal by the middle of November.The first reading of U.S. third-quarter GDP Thursday is anticipated to be the strongest on record following a record dive in the prior quarter as many businesses were shuttered by the pandemic.Here are the main moves in markets:StocksS&P 500 Index futures added 1% as of 2:03 p.m. in Tokyo.
