The central bank has kept the 10-year bond yield around its target of zero percent with its regular purchases and occasional offers to buy an unlimited amount of debt, while managing to bring down spending from its annual guidance of about 80 trillion yen ($718 billion). The economy is enjoying its longest expansion since 2006, though inflation at 0.5 percent is just a quarter of the BOJ’s 2 percent target.
The yen retreated on the election talk, according to traders. Should he win, Abe would get to pick the next leaders of the BOJ, after choosing the current group that’s overseen a slide in the currency. Three-month risk reversals for dollar-yen rose to the highest level since June 30, indicating demand for put options have fallen relative to that for calls. Leveraged and macro accounts have increased offers in option volatility, said a trader.
Bishop isn’t alone expecting the increase to continue, with forecasters in the most recent Bloomberg poll now seeing 10-year yields climbing to 2.48 percent by the end of this year. The yield fell to a 10-month low of 2.01 percent last week as tension over North Korea escalated and as investors assessed the Fed’s plans to raise borrowing costs and announce the beginning of its balance sheet reduction as early as next week.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
