Moreover, investors remain on the back and refrain from placing big bets before the BOJ outcome. The index trades largely subdued around 17,025 points. The Australian markets also followed its Japanese counterpart lower, with the overnight bounce in oil doing little to boost the resource and energy stocks. Heavy losses in the gold and banking stocks also dampened the sentiment. The ASX 200 index recovers losses and now trades -0.12% at 4,970.
