USD/JPY forecast: 151 seems plausible, 152 may be a stretch

USD/JPY is clinging to 150 despite the weaker US dollar on Tuesday, as there seems little reason for traders to bid the yen. And unless we receive a compelling reason to buy then yen via a surprisingly hawkish BOJ or broad risk-off environment, it becomes difficult to construct an overly bearish case for USD/JPY whilst the Fed remain quiet about rate cuts.


USD/JPY forms bull flag above 150, Nasdaq ‘rebound’ tied to yields

The Nasdaq may have risen on Wednesday, but it appears driven by a pullback in yields. And if yields rally from a key level of support, it could propel USD/JPY higher and weigh on the Nasdaq.
