On Monday, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) announced an unscheduled purchase of the Japanese government bonds (JGB), in an effort to slow down the ongoing surge in in yields.
This comes after the benchmark 10-year JGB yield rose 1 basis point in early Asia to reach the highest since September last year at 0.775%.
USD/JPY is uninspired by the BoJ operation, keeping 0.29% higher on the day at 149.80. The pair is sitting at the highest level in 11 months and closing on in the critical 150.00 level.
