Nikko: Japan’s inflation and monetary policy outlook

We believe that, Japan’s recent performance is not just a one-off adjustment but does have the potential to develop into a broad-based rally throughout the next 12-18 months. In coming weeks, any consolidation after the recent strong rally offers a great opportunity to reconsider a sizeable Japan allocation to capture positive momentum for dollar investors.”
