Bank of Japan
The Bank of Japan will change the format of monthly statistics "Sources of Changes in Current Account Balances at the Bank of Japan (Projections)" starting from the projections for April 2021, which will be released on April 5, 2021.
The details are as follows:
- The item "Year-to-year percentage changes" of Banknotes in "1.Projected funds surplus/shortage during the month" will be ceased.
- The Japanese and English formats of the dates of "Days with a large surplus/shortage of funds" in "2.Days with a large surplus/shortage of funds" will be combined.
- "The amount of JGBs that were acquired through, for example, the Bank's outright purchase operations by the end of the previous month and are redeemed at maturity during this month" and "the amount of T-Bills that were acquired through the Bank's outright purchase/sale operations by the end of the previous month and are redeemed during this month" in "Notes 4." will be ceased.
