Fundamental Weekly Forecasts for GBPUSD, USDJPY, AUDUSD, USDCAD and GOLD (based on the article)

USD/JPY - "We may continue to see capital flow out of Japan which itself will keep pressure on the JPY exchange rate. The USD/JPY in particular seems likely to test near-term lows, but that is just as easily a function of US Dollar weakness instead of Yen strength. It would take a fairly significant shift in Bank of Japan policy to improve outlook for the domestic currency."

Naoyuki Shinohara, an ex-IMF deputy chief and formerly Japan's top currency diplomat (the articles' review)

  • Tokyo unlikely to intervene in market to stem yen rises
  • Conducting solo yen-selling intervention now would be ineffective, unlikely to gain G7 consent
  • Hard to change with FX intervention current dollar/yen declining trend, which reflects fundamentals
  • Hard to find any factors justifying yen-selling intervention
  • It's clear yen isn't extremely strong on a real, effective basis

if actual > forecast (or previous one) = good for currency (for JPY in our case)

==========

USD/JPY sees a 200-pips fall:

"The yen jolted nearly 200-pips higher versus the American dollar in a knee-jerk reaction to the BOJ policy announcement, as the central bank keeps monetary policy steady, maintains 80 trln Yen base money target and 0.1% negative interest rate. USD/JPY plunged to fresh one-week lows of 108.78 immediately after the BOJ decision, before recovering some ground to now trade around 109.25, still down –2.03% on the day."

"The Japanese currency received a huge boosts as markets were expecting more easing from the BOJ in wake of the recent appreciation in the yen against the greenback and underlying subdued price trends. However, markets were disappointed as BOJ decided to adopt loan support programme only for banks in areas hit by southern Japan quake."

Soros Chart Signals BOJ Bond Buying Already Enough to Weaken Yen (based on the article)

"The Bank of Japan’s bond buying has nearly trebled the monetary base in just over three years to more than 386 trillion yen ($3.6 trillion) as of April, a central bank report showed Friday. Base money in dollar terms is at its highest relative to the U.S. since 2006 at 96 percent, despite Japan’s economy being about a quarter the size. Some traders have dubbed the ratio a “Soros Chart,” after billionaire investor George Soros correctly predicted in the 1990s that burgeoning supplies of funds would weaken the yen."


"An expanding monetary base is a factor for yen weakness, making it hard to imagine that the one-way strength that we’ve seen in the yen will continue,” said Fumio Nakakubo, chief investment officer for Japan at UBS Group AG’s wealth management unit. “There is an excess of yen in the market -- like how juice gets diluted by adding too much water -- and it will cause the yen’s value to drop further and further.”


  • "The BOJ is expanding the monetary base at an annual pace of 80 trillion yen, whereas the Federal Reserve wound down its own quantitative easing program in October 2014."
  • “The market wants a quick fix, but the BOJ is doing everything it can,” said Daisaku Ueno, chief currency strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities Co. “In the long run, it’s difficult to imagine the effect won’t be felt in the value of the yen.”
