Greatest sell-off of Australian Dollar
Information is not investment advice
The Australian central bank claimed that it would indeed cut asset purchases in September as the bank initially planned and the markets expected. However, the next review of the quantitative easing program would be moved from November 2021 to February 2022.

Hold onto your hats, folks! The Japanese yen took a nosedive after the Bank of Japan (BOJ) left its ultra-loose policy settings unchanged, including its closely watched yield curve control (YCC) policy. But wait, there's more! The BOJ also removed its forward guidance, which had previously pledged to keep interest rates at current or lower levels. So, what's the scoop? Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
