In March 2024, the Bank of Japan ended its interest rate policy after eight years and abolished its Yield Curve Control (YCC) policy in a move to normalize the country's monetary policy (US News & World Report, CNBC, Investopedia, US News & World Report - YCC Explainer). The question will be suspended on 1 August 2024 and the outcome determined using data as reported in the US by Trading Economics (Trading Economics, set chart to "1Y" and hover cursor over the chart for data). The closing yield for the Japanese 10-year bond on 2 August 2023 was 0.6270%.
