Japanese yen forecast

JPY in the markets

The threat of proxy war between the US and Iran in Iraq has helped bring on the recent gains in the Japanese yen and US dollar plus currencies pegged to the greenback such as the Hong Kong dollar.

Last year, HSBC warned against thinking that yen-supporting safe-haven flows would soon stop, implying that the yen could have more upside potential in the near term. The bank highlighted the “desolation and destruction” (an exaggeration) present in many major economies and currencies. “You can never get too high,” the bank’s chief analyst said.
