Bank of Japan mulling unlimited bond buying at next meeting -Nikkei

April 23 (Reuters) - The Bank of Japan will discuss unlimited buying of government bonds at its next policy-setting meeting on April 27, the Nikkei newspaper said on Thursday, as it seeks to cushion the economy against a sharp downturn caused by the coronavirus outbreak.

The BOJ will also consider a sharp increase in the amount of commercial paper and corporate bonds it purchases, the Nikkei said. (Reporting by David Dolan Editing by Mark Heinrich)
