The Bank of Japan released the minutes of the November 26 meeting when the bank decided to keep interest rates steady at 0.10%. The BOJ said it will keep the financial environment accommodative and it will keep interest rates at its low record for sometime, in order to provide the needed liquidity in financial markets.

However, the BOJ board members agreed to extend the collateralized lending if it is needed, worth mentioning that this rescue program was decided to end in March next year.
