3. Currency News, Research 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 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 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

In March, the Hong Kong dollar weakened to the extreme of its allowed trading range, at 7.85 per US dollar, marking the point at which the Hong Kong Monetary Authority must step in to defend the currency.

The Hong Kong dollar has fallen to multi-decade lows due to a widening of the US-Hong Kong interest rate differential. Despite the HKMA raising interest rates in step with the US Federal Reserve, rates paid on Hong Kong dollars have remained low over the past fifteen months due to abundant liquidity in Hong Kong’s financial system; meanwhile, rates paid on US dollars have risen steadily. For large investors, this provides an incentive to exchange (sell) borrowed Hong Kong dollars for higher-yielding US dollars.

Due to Hong Kong’s sizeable foreign exchange reserves, which are among the largest in the world, a speculative attack on the USD/HKD peg is unlikely.

In March, the Hong Kong dollar also stood close to long-term lows against both the Japanese yen and euro.

Japanese yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

The Japanese yen spent much of 2017 trading up and down between 108 and 115 per US dollar, but has been the best performing G10 currency in early 2018. In the first seven weeks of the year, USD/JPY fell 6% to 106.11, marking the yen’s strongest level against the dollar in fifteen months.

The yen has also made back ground against the euro, strengthening by mid-February to rates in the low 132s; however, the yen remains weak against the euro by recent standards – EUR/JPY had been as low as 109.2 in mid-2016.

The yen’s strength in early 2018 will have surprised analysts at UBS. Entering the new year, the bank predicted that the yen would do worst of all the FX majors this year on the grounds that Shinzo Abe’s re-election in 2017 would likley mean a continuation of extremely loose monetary policy in Japan. UBS believed that the yen would weaken to levels above 115 per dollar.

“Analysts have struggled to explain why the yen is rising,” said the Financial Times in February, especially when the differential between US and Japanese interest rates continues to widen in favour of the dollar.

“I think [the reason for yen strength] is more technical,” said Citi analyst Koichi Kano.
