USD/JPY - "JGB yields may accelerate upward if this
happens, intensifying the BOJ vs. markets standoff. With that in mind,
the Yen’s path in the week ahead is as likely to be decided in
Washington, DC as it is in Tokyo. A relatively quiet week on the
relevant economic data front offers few distractions, leaving simmering
market tensions to their own devices."

USD/JPY - "The 2017 FOMC voting members (Minneapolis Fed President Neel Kashkari, Philadelphia Fed President Patrick Harker and Fed Governor Jerome Powell)
schedule to speak in the week ahead may strike a similar tone to Chair
Yellen, and the fresh rhetoric may do little to alter the interest rate
outlook as Fed Fund Futures continue to highlight limited expectations
for a March rate-hike, with market participants still pricing a greater
than 60% probability for a move in June. The FOMC Minutes may share a
similar and fail to prop up the greenback as officials expect ‘the
evolution of the economy to warrant further gradual increases in the
federal funds rate,’ and more of the same rhetoric may produce
range-bound conditions in the exchange rate, with the pair with the pair
at risk of giving back the advance from earlier this month as risk

USD/JPY - "The big item on the calendar for next week is January CPI, set to be released on Thursday evening (Friday morning in Asia, Europe). Due to the uniqueness of the Japanese economy, the bank follows a few different gauges of importance. There is the ‘all items’ index, which is basically just headline CPI, including all relevant products in the followed basket. But Core CPI in Japan (this is what the BoJ targets) includes Oil products while stripping out the more volatile fresh food items. And then there is the ‘All items, less food and energy’ (this would be similar to a traditional ‘Core CPI’ reading from another economy in Europe or the United States). The expectation for next week’s CPI read is that we’ll finally see Core CPI flatten out after declining for 10 consecutive months, further adding fuel to that recent theme of improvement that’s helped Mr. Kuroda take a slightly less-dovish stance to markets. A Core inflationary read anywhere above 0% will likely stoke additional Yen-strength, as bets for more monetary stimulus further price-out of Japanese markets."

USD/JPY - "However, Chair Yellen concluded that ‘a gradual removal of accommodation is likely to be appropriate,’ and it seems as though the central bank may tame the broader outlook for monetary policy as ‘market-based measures of inflation compensation have moved up, on net, in recent months, although they remain low.’ With Fed officials scheduled to release their updated projections in March, the fresh estimates may reflect minor changes to the growth and inflation forecast, but a further reduction in long-run Fed Fund forecast may drag on market expectations and undermine the recent strength in the U.S. dollar. Nevertheless, the bar remains high for the Bank of Japan (BoJ) to move away from its easing-cycle as inflation remains well below the 2% target, and Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and Co. may continue to endorse a dovish outlook at the March 16 interest rate decision as the Balance of Payment (BoP) report is anticipated to show a trade deficit in January. The deviating paths for monetary policy continues to instill a long-term bullish outlook for USD/JPY, and the BoJ looks poised to further expand its balance sheet as the central bank pledges to keep the 10-year yield around zero."
