3. Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Euro and Japanese yen

Whenever you are interested in an exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies due to the fact that the value of a currency is always determined quoted in comparison to another currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the EUR vs JPY, you should pay attention to both Euro and Japanese yen news and forecasts.

Euro (EUR) - Market news and forecasts

Against the US dollar, after reaching a three-year high of 1.256 in mid-February, the euro fell back into the mid-1.18s by mid-May. The euro lost value against the greenback due to the latter currency’s recoupling with interest rate expectations. Higher US yields had pushed the dollar higher across the board.

Against sterling, the euro is little changed since September of last year (it’s marginally lower). EUR/GBP continues to trade above and below 0.88.

Anticipating an end-of-year reduction in the level of ECB quantitative easing, Stephen Gallo of BMO Capital has predicted a summer rally in the euro – a rally that will eventually drive EUR/USD to 1.30 in the first half of 2019.

Danske Bank are predicting euro weakness against the British pound in the near-term, with a mid-August forecast of 0.865.

Japanese yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

By late March 2018, the yen had strengthened to a sixteen-month high against the dollar of 104.21, making it the best performing major currency of the year to that point; however, by late-April, renewed dollar optimism had driven USD/JPY back into the 109s, close to its average over the past six months.

In the weeks leading up to this report, the yen had also weakened against seven of the other nine G10 currencies.

It appears that central bank divergence is back as the principal driver of USD/JPY. Recent events have cemented expectations for four further US rate hikes this year, but the Bank of Japan, by contrast, continues to uphold easy monetary policy and maintain negative interest rates.

Despite interest rate differentials working against it, in a report on April 23rd, Citibank said of the yen that it remains “fundamentally undervalued,” and it predicted USD/JPY falling to 103 within the next 6-12 months.
