BOJ refrains from buying ETFs on Tuesday, breaks from long-held stance

TOKYO, April 20 (Reuters) - The Bank of Japan did not buy Japanese stock-linked exchange trade funds (ETFs) on Tuesday, the central bank's disclosure showed, breaking from its past practice of buying ETFs when the market is down.

The Topix index fell 1.25% by midday on Tuesday, a level that has prompted BOJ purchases of ETFs in the past.
