I’m itching to be long USD/JPY in this climate, needing only a little help from higher Treasury yields to unlock the door. But I’ve been scratched by this trade and confidence is low. So I’ll watch for now. EUR/JPY bouncing would really help, but that probably requires EUR/USD to look a little less sprightly.
After yesterday’s reverses, the currencies we like are in better shape today. Along with short in SGD/INR, we still like shorts in EUR/RUB, in GBP/NOK and longs in AUD/NZD. Short USD/CAD has more room to go too.
