Japan's Aso Urges Patience on BOJ Easing

TOKYO--Japan's finance minister said on Tuesday that it will to take a few months before the effects of the Bank of Japan's monetary easing on market trends become clear, maintaining his cautious attitude toward making comments on market movements.

"The yen may fall and stocks may rise all of a sudden as a result of that, but trends tend to emerge a few months" afterwards, Taro Aso said at a news conference. "It has only been a month (since the BOJ rolled out aggressive easing measures). There is nothing particular yet that I need to point out."

Mr. Aso's remarks come as Japanese officials take pains not to raise any suspicions that they are aiming to lower the yen's value to boost Japanese exports or produce any market reaction through monetary loosening. Some emerging nations competing with Japan's manufacturers, such as China and South Korea, have continued to accuse Tokyo of weakening the yen despite Japan's efforts to convince them that monetary easing by the BOJ is intended to bolster domestic economic activities.
