Today’s stock outlook = ups and downs, wait-and-see wait-and-see policy-making meeting European stock prices support | Reuters

[Tokyo 18th Reuters]–The Nikkei Stock Average is expected to move across the previous day’s closing price (28,333.52 yen) on the Tokyo stock market today. While the US stock market was closed the day before and lacked clues, European stock prices are expected to support the downside. Today, the results of the BOJ’s monetary policy decision meeting will be announced around noon, and Kuroda’s press conference will be held after the close, so it is expected that the wait-and-see attitude will gradually increase after the buying cycle.

The expected range of the Nikkei average is 28,100 yen to 28,500 yen.

The European stock market rebounded on the 17th. Healthcare-related sales rose, driven by plans to acquire the over-the-counter (over-the-counter) division of British pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) by food and daily goods giant Unilever.

The current dollar / yen pair is around 114.63 yen, almost flat from 114.54 yen as of 3:00 pm on the 17th. The Nikkei average futures have risen slightly to 28,400 yen in the night trading on the Osaka Exchange. Today’s Nikkei 225 lacks aggressive buying material, so it is likely that the price movements will continue in the vicinity of the closing price on the previous day.

Today is the second day of the Bank of Japan’s monetary policy decision meeting in Japan, and a press conference by Governor Kuroda is scheduled after the close. The outlook report is also scheduled to be released, and there will be interest in the price outlook.

In the market, “the monetary policy itself has not changed, and the price outlook in the outlook report is expected to be raised, so attention is focused on Mr. Kuroda’s remarks at the press conference,” said the manager. Since the market is interested in interviews, it is difficult to move during trading hours, and the wait-and-see mood tends to increase.

Other major schedules include the announcement of Goldman Sachs’ financial results and the January Home Builders Index (NAHB) in the United States.
