TOKYO (Reuters) - The Bank of Japan’s exchange-traded funds purchase this month hit the lowest level in more than three years as Japanese stocks outperformed global peers on the back of hopes of progress around U.S.-China trade talks.

The BOJ bought 163 billion yen ($1.5 billion) worth of stock ETFs in September, its data showed on Monday, the lowest amount since the central bank doubled the buying target to 6 trillion yen per year in July 2016.
