This morning, Shinzō Abe, the Prime Minister of Japan, said that the country’s authorities made a decision about expansion of the QE program in the amount of 28 trillion Yens or a bit more. According to his words, the final decision will be made on August 2nd

However, the BoJ’s meeting is ahead. Investors are going to listen to the Central Bank’s comments very carefully, as the country is on the verge of a new round of fiscal easing.
