TOKYO, March 29 The Bank of Japan trimmed the
purchase of three to five-year Japanese government bonds in its
regular market operations on Wednesday.
The central bank announced it would buy 380 billion yen
($3.42 billion) in those maturities, down from the previous
operation's 400 billion yen.
The BOJ has been tweaking the amount of JGBs it buys at its
operations in an effort to reduce market volatility, which
worsened as the central bank purchased large amounts of debt
under its easing programme.
