Asia c.banks: Japan, Korea keep policy steady

 
The Bank of Japan kept monetary policy steady and held off on
revising up its assessment of the economy on Thursday, opting to
wait for more clues on whether the increasingly positive mood
will encourage companies to ramp up spending.
The Bank of Korea also left its policy interest rate
untouched on Thursday, for a third straight month, and is widely
perceived as having ended an easing cycle that began a year ago,
and has seen South Korea's economy turn to a modest recovery.
