08:25 EDTJapan is a cautionary tale for the Fed
Japan is a cautionary tale for the Fed so says WSJ's Hilsenrath in the Grand Central blog after telling us on Monday that a mid-2015 is still a virtual lock. Prematurely hiking rates in 2006, only to have to knock them back down again following the financial crisis, which would be the "nightmare scenario" for the Fed. "Federal Reserve officials say it would be a disaster if they attempt to raise rates and then are forced to push them back down to zero. It is one reason why many officials want to be patient and certain the U.S. economy is fully on the mend before the central bank moves toward raising rates later this year. Yes, yes, yes, there are many differences between Japan’s economy, financial system and central bank and the U.S. Analysts have heard this many times. Still, Japan's experience is a reminder that any number of factors - bad luck, global economic shocks, nagging headwinds to the domestic economy, the drags of an aging population -- could derail the Fed's hopeful plans. Perhaps this is one reason why investors - who have pushed long-term U.S. rates down in recent weeks and whose futures market rate expectations are lower than the Fed's published forecasts - are so skeptical that U.S. rates are anywhere near returning to normal."

07:35 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The dollar traded on a weaker footing overnight, though into the ECB meeting on Thursday, EUR-USD did not stray far from Tuesday's closing levels. USD-JPT pulled back on the BoJ's lack of policy action, though USD-CAD remained form into this morning's BoC announcement. Equity futures and yields are lower this morning, which will likely keep the USD on the defensive, while December housing starts provide the only calendar entry this morning.

04:00 EDTBoJ's Kuroda reaffirmed intention to achieve the 2% CPI target
BoJ's Kuroda reaffirmed intention to achieve the 2% CPI target during his post-meeting press conference, "regardless of whether commodity prices rise or fall" and that "on the assumption that oil prices will flatten out at current levels and rise moderately ahead, the effect of the oil price decline will ease. If so, analysts expect consumer inflation to reach 2 percent in a period centred on fiscal 2015." Kuroda also said that "some board members held a more cautious view on the price outlook," and that the easing in October was "because crude oil price falls and the pain from a sales tax hike in April." So, no hints that there may be a further expansion in policy, which caused the yen to pop higher. A Bloomberg survey found 26 of 33 of economists forecast fresh BoJ monetary expansion by the end of October.
