Japan’s central bank has more leeway to keep its bars in place because they’re smaller in scale and there's brief danger of inflation taking hold, said Sumitomo Mitsui’s Muto.

“The BOJ’s asset buys are centered pretty limited areas,” Muto said. “The bank has also experienced an exit in the past and policy makers will not be too nervous about their scheme.”

The central bank stopped an earlier quantitative easing policy in May 2006, during Japan’s longest postwar enlargement.

The economy probably grew first in more than a year last quarter, expanding at an annual 2.4 percent pace after dipping a record 14.2 percent in the first 3 weeks, according to economists appraised by Bloomberg News.
