  The Bank of Japan have cut it purchases of JGBs -  The Bank bought 60bn yen of JGBs with a maturity of 25 - 40 years against the 70bn yen at the previous operation You may recall the first time the BOJ tapered (over a year ago) the yen strengthened. Then again the next time. After that we all got bored and now the yen does not do too much all (at the most recent taper to today the yen weakened …. bringing forth much LOLs).

More from Powell Since Powell has come back from a break, there hasn't been much interesting. One thing that's great about Powell is that when he can't answer a question, he just says he can't answer it. It helps things move along, rather than running out the clock and rambling like Yellen. "I'm not going to give you advice on fiscal policy, sorry," he said in response to a question about taxes.
