USDJPY: Data-Packed Last 48 Hours of the Week to Lead to a Triangle Breakout

Updated -  Aug 27, 2014 2:00:00 PM

After rocketing 175 pips higher last week, USDJPY has been absolutely anemic this week. After gapping higher to trade at a new 7-month high above 104.12, rates dipped down to fill the gap on Monday and have since oscillated with 35 pips of the 104.00 handle. The recent trading conditions have undoubtedly been lackluster, but USDJPY traders should not lose faith yet; a busy economic calendar and developing technical pattern suggest volatility should return  [...] Continue Reading

FX: is volatility about to come back to the FX market?

Updated -  Aug 26, 2014 10:50:00 AM

Listening to some of the speeches from Jackson Hole at the weekend, the annual conference of central bankers, monetary policy could be about to move down divergent paths in the coming months, and there could be implications for the FX market.   On the one side you  [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY gaps higher; Nikkei rallies

Updated -  Aug 25, 2014 1:23:52 AM

A combination of yen weakness and US dollar strength has pushed USDJPY even higher. As we outlined this morning, the weekend’s events in Jackson Hole sent investors flocking to the USD and away from the yen. The ensuing yen weakness has helped to spark a rally in the Nikkei, with investors hoping that the lower exchange rate will breathe new life into Japan’s struggling export market. The sell-off in the yen was sparked by  [...] Continue Reading

Fed Minutes: Hawkish Shift Drives Buck to New Highs

Updated -  Aug 20, 2014 2:25:00 PM

Traders just received the minutes from the most recent meeting of the Federal Reserve policy committee, and the big takeaway is that the FOMC is shifting in favor of normalizing monetary policy sooner than many traders were expecting. Though the vote in favor of last month’s policy statement was a relatively tame 9-1 decision, with hardcore hawk Charles Plosser as the only dissenter, the recently released minutes showed more discord within the committee than the  [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY: navigating Jackson Hole risk

Updated -  Aug 20, 2014 8:40:00 AM

The Jackson Hole conference of central bankers may not be everyone’s idea of a barrel of laughs, but it can be big news for your portfolio. In the past, central bankers have used these speeches to announce changes in monetary policy; this is where Ben Bernanke first announced the prospect of QE. As we lead up to today’s meeting expectations are high that Janet Yellen will announce something equally juicy, especially as we are less  [...] Continue Reading

USDJPY: Sailing through Rough Retail Sales Seas

Updated -  Aug 13, 2014 10:20:00 AM

A few weeks ago, we raised the possibility that USDJPY could see a breakout from its 7-month descending triangle pattern (see “Time for USDJPY Traders to Wake Up?” for more). A few days later, the pair broke out of the pattern, eventually running up to 103.00 before losing steam and pulling back to 101.50 last week. Now, as we go to press, the fundamental picture for USDJPY is mixed, but the technical outlook remains  [...] Continue Reading

Watch out for any further declines in the 2-year yield, keep an eye on what USDJPY is doing and remember to  [...] Continue Reading

The BoJ is expected to ignore recent weak economic data

Updated -  Aug 7, 2014 8:56:09 PM

The Bank of Japan (BOJ) is expected to maintain the status-quo at the conclusion of its two-day policy meeting later today. The bank will likely retain its plan to increase the monetary base by 60-70 trillion yen a year through assets purchases. In fact, the unrelenting optimism of the BOJ should ensure that the entire meeting is a non-event for the market. Also, the interim forecasts released in July would have been a better time  [...] Continue Reading
