6.Google announces major shift away from precision-targeting of ads

Google said on Wednesday that it would move away from using technologies that track specific users as they browse the web, a move that could upend the digital advertising industry.

7.Global bond rout puts BOJ’s yield curve control in spotlight

TOKYO (Reuters) – The Bank of Japan’s success in controlling the shape of the bond market’s yield curve could tempt other central banks to consider deploying similar tactics as they grapple with a rise in borrowing costs that could cripple their economies.

The Japanese central bank has kept bond yields largely pinned inside a narrow range around 0%, since it adopted its yield curve control (YCC) policy in 2016. The merits of the policy are clear. By shifting to targeting yields, the BOJ could buy fewer bonds than under its massive bond-buying programme many analysts saw as unsustainable.
