Currency news and forecasts for Hong Kong Dollar 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 must always be quoted in comparison to a second currency.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the HKD vs JPY, you should pay attention to both Hong Kong Dollar and Japanese Yen news and forecasts.

Hong Kong Dollar (HKD) - Market news and forecasts

2018 has been a good year for the Hong Kong dollar, as it has been for the US dollar, to which it is pegged.

Entering the third week of November 2018, HKD’s year-to-date gains over six of the seven non-USD majors averaged 5.4 percent. HKD was unchanged against the yen.

At different times in 2018, HKD has benefitted from Brexit uncertainty in Europe, from inactivity on monetary policy in Oceania, and a recent collapse in the oil market, which saw its value rise against petro-currencies.

Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for HKD approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, HKD has averaged trade-weighted gains of 1.8 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December.

By way of its USD forecasts, Citibank said in September that HKD would gain 3-4 percent over a 6-12-month period; however, gains would be followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term.

Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on USD and HKD. ING isn't ruling out interventions from Washington aimed at weakening the greenback. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.

J.P. Morgan said in November that USD and HKD would be worth slightly more in the first half of 2019, before weakening slightly in the second half of the year.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

As December 2018 began, the yen was little changed year-to-date, at levels near 113.6 to the US dollar.

As year-end approached, analysts considered the yen’s future, and appeared to agree that the low-yielding currency would strengthen throughout 2019 and beyond.

The median estimate of economists polled by Bloomberg in December indicated USD/JPY — the benchmark yen exchange rate — falling to 105 by the end of 2019, which marks yen strength of 8 percent from December’s opening rate. Experts at Mizuho, Citibank and Commerzbank saw the yen strengthening even further, to 100 or stronger. USD/JPY hasn’t traded at the symbolic 100 level since August 2016.

Yen strength will be driven by tighter Japanese monetary policy, experts said, and by a slower pace of policy tightening in the US. The US-Japanese interest rate differential will narrow.

At the time of writing, the yen was 5 percent higher on the year against both the euro and Australian dollar, at respective rates of 129 and 83.5.
