Yamaguchi said the open-ended commitment shows the BOJ's resolve to maintain its ultra-easy monetary policy without interruption, suggesting that any further policy loosening will take the form of further increases in asset purchases.
A career central banker, Yamaguchi is a key figure to watch for signals on the future direction of monetary policy and the markets consider him among those more eager to ease aggressively when needed. His five-year term ends on March 19.
