Efforts to push for a much bolder monetary policy than the traditionally conservative Bank of Japan has pursued in the past are part of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's drive to reinvigorate the Japanese economy.
And for months now financial markets have been anticipating aggressive monetary easing from the BOJ, pushing the yen sharply lower and piling into Japanese stocks - the Nikkei has risen about 40 percent since mid-November.
