    In an apparent volte face, the Bank of Japan introduced negative interest rates, much to the surprise of the markets. By targeting only marginal transactions, the BOJ is more similar to the approach taken in Switzerland, Sweden and Denmark than by the ECB.

It was also more widespread, suggesting that markets might be now expecting a dovish reaction by the ECB and the Federal reserve.
