The Bank of Japan said it would inject $14 billion to stabilize the fragie global financial market, for the second time in a few weeks, just after the stock market opened. .

The Bank of Japan said Monday it had injected another 1.5 trillion yen (14 billion dollars) into money markets to help stabilise the international financial system after recent turmoil.

The Bank of Japan (BoJ) announced the move on its website shortly after the opening of the stock market, which was sharply higher on news of a US rescue package for the financial sector.
