    USD to JPY 2024 Forecasts

    Analysis of recent Dollar → Yen forecasts for 2024. We collate forecasts from respected FX analysts together with the latest US dollar to Japanese yen performance and trends.


    Forecasts for USD to JPY


    The USD has been under pressure recently as US inflation eased and retail data disappointed, leading to increased expectations of a Federal Reserve rate cut. Despite a strong performance in April, the USD's future outlook hinges on upcoming economic data, particularly the May CPI figures. Analysts believe that high CPI data could delay potential rate cuts until September, with markets closely monitoring the May 15 CPI release and the impact it may have on USD performance.

    Conversely, the JPY weakened against the USD during April due to robust US economic data, prompting concerns about potential yen interventions by the Bank of Japan. Despite the BoJ's decision to keep interest rates unchanged, forecasts suggest possible hikes in the future to maintain inflation near the 2% target. Recent speculation regarding JPY interventions has led to temporary relief for the yen, with concerns remaining about the persistent interest rate differentials between Japan and the US. The expected USDJPY range for May is forecasted between 152.00 and 158.00, reflecting the ongoing influence of economic data and central bank actions on the exchange rate.

    The USDJPY pair currently stands at 155.4, showing a 2.1% increase from its average over the past three months. With the yen's value being impacted by interest rate differentials and potential interventions, further market movements will likely be influenced by upcoming economic indicators and central bank actions. Furthermore, the recent Brent Crude OIL/USD price data revealed oil prices at 83.44, slightly below the three-month average, highlighting the volatile nature of oil markets that could add another layer of complexity to the movement of the Japanese yen against the US dollar.
