Market Review & Outlook: Directionless Fed Confounds Markets

Updated -  Aug 19, 2016 12:30:00 PM

Market action this past week was dominated early in the week by mixed expectations regarding the Fed’s monetary policy stance ahead of Wednesday’s release of July’s FOMC minutes, and then by even more mixed opinions and conflicted speculation after the release. The Fed’s policy talk worsened the confusion throughout the week – from the highly-dissected public statements by key Fed members to the actual release of the FOMC minutes. The week started with a paper  [...] Continue Reading

USD/JPY remains pressured around 100.00 on persistent Fed/BoJ uncertainty

Updated -  Aug 18, 2016 12:40:00 PM

USD/JPY continued on Thursday to consolidate its recent losses and fluctuate in a tight range right around the key 100.00 psychological support level. Mixed signals from Wednesday’s release of July’s FOMC meeting minutes that highlighted a divided Fed have contributed to a rather indeterminate directional bias for the currency pair. Despite those mixed signals, however, markets have appeared to make the tentative conclusion that a Fed rate hike is not imminent and that this year  [...] Continue Reading

Flat Japan GDP fails to pressure yen; dollar continues to struggle

Updated -  Aug 15, 2016 2:00:00 PM

Preliminary Japanese GDP data (q/q) for the second quarter was released prior to Monday’s Asian trading session, and the results were a significant disappointment. Gross domestic product for the April-to-June period was reportedly flat against prior consensus expectations of a 0.2% increase. This weak economic data could likely help pressure Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s government and the Bank of Japan to find additional ways to stimulate the Japanese economy. Despite the implication that Monday’s pessimistic  [...] Continue Reading

USD/JPY: set for a bounce?

Updated -  Aug 11, 2016 11:49:22 AM

As the divergence in monetary policy between the US and Japan began to widen, the USD/JPY started its massive bull trend from around the year 2012 which ultimately ended in mid-2015, well before the December 2015 rate increase. During this period, the US central bank slowly started to unwind its extremely loose unconventional monetary policy, ending QE3 in late 2014, while the Japanese central bank continued to loosen its policy further in the form or  [...] Continue Reading

Key 100.00 level looms as USD/JPY continues plunge

Updated -  Aug 2, 2016 3:50:00 PM

USD/JPY resumed its plunge on Tuesday as the dollar continued its recent slide on lowered Fed rate hike expectations and the yen rose despite news that the Japanese government had approved a hefty fiscal stimulus package worth 13.5 trillion yen. Since last week’s FOMC meeting, the US dollar has been significantly pressured, suffering from the market’s realization that a rate hike in the next few months is both extremely uncertain and increasingly improbable. This lowered  [...] Continue Reading

USD/JPY braces for Fed, BoJ

Updated -  Jul 25, 2016 12:40:00 PM

USD/JPY remained supported on Monday ahead of an important week for central banks. In the past two weeks, the Bank of England (BoE) and European Central Bank (ECB) used their time in the spotlight by keeping monetary policy unchanged, signaling a wait-and-see approach to the continuing saga of post-Brexit consequences. The BoE was expected to implement new stimulus measures as a response to Brexit, but surprised markets by opting for inaction, sending sterling temporarily higher.  [...] Continue Reading

Has USD/JPY bottomed out?

Updated -  Jul 14, 2016 2:00:00 PM

This week has seen the USD/JPY stage a remarkable recovery. After dipping momentarily below 100 on Friday of last week, the unit has climbed some 600 pips to reach a high so far of almost 106.00 today. The rebound has been driven by speculation about a potential Bank of Japan intervention of some sort, a general enhancement in risk appetite and a slight improvement in US data. Last Friday’s stronger employment report for  [...] Continue Reading

USD/JPY bounces back as Japan signals more stimulus

Updated -  Jul 11, 2016 1:50:00 PM

The yen plummeted against its major counterparts on Monday after news that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe’s Liberal Democratic Party won a landslide victory in Upper House elections, providing much anticipated support for Abe’s controversial economic stimulus program, Abenomics. The political victory was followed shortly after by an announcement that Abe would be implementing additional stimulus measures in attempts to boost Japan’s ailing economy. As might have been expected after such news, Japan’s Nikkei index  [...] Continue Reading

NFP Recap: Could the Huge NFP Beat Help Sway the Fed?

Updated -  Jul 8, 2016 2:00:00 PM

While the headline Non-Farm Payrolls (NFP) number came out on Friday way ahead of expectations at 287K jobs added in June against prior forecasts of 175K, other aspects of the US Labor Department’s report were not as rosy. May’s data was revised down from an already-dismal 38,000 to an even worse 11,000. The unemployment rate in June rose to 4.9% against the 4.8% expected, offsetting May’s better-than-expected 4.7%. Average hourly earnings also fell short of  [...] Continue Reading

Brexit Outcome Stuns Markets – What Comes Next?

Updated -  Jun 24, 2016 1:20:00 PM

The outcome of Thursday’s historic EU referendum, in which nearly 52% of UK voters opted to leave the European Union, stunned markets globally in its immediate aftermath on Friday morning. The vote counting began with a surprisingly sizeable lead for Leave at over 60% of voters in Sunderland, and the pro-Brexit camp never looked back as it continued to maintain a modest advantage throughout the vote tally, even after the expectedly pro-Remain London votes came  [...] Continue Reading
