Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/JPY (based on the article)


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."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/JPY (based on the article)


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 appetite abates."

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/JPY (based on the article)


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."

Weekly Outlook: 2017, March 05 - March 12 (based on the article)

Rate decision in Australia and the Eurozone, Employment data from Canada and the US including the ADP report followed by the all-important NFP release.


  • Australian rate decision: Tuesday, 3:30. The RBA monitors the recent increase in lending to property investors and further data about the economy’s performance to determine its next move.
  • US ADP Non-Farm Employment Change: Wednesday, 13:15.
  • US Crude Oil Inventories: Wednesday, 15:30.
  • Eurozone rate decision: Thursday, 12:45. The head of the central bank Mario Draghi said the Eurozone economy is stronger, but still fragile and requires more time to rebound. Therefore monetary stimulus may still be raised if required.
  • US Unemployment Claims: Thursday, 13:30. Following the positive condition in the labor market together with rising inflation will push the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates this month.
  • Canadian employment data: Friday, 13:30. 
  • US Non-Farm Employment Change and Unemployment rate: Friday, 13:30. Economists expected an increase of 170,000 jobs, and the unemployment rate to remain at 4.7%.

Weekly Fundamental Forecast for USD/JPY (based on the article)


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."
