Outlook and forecasts for JPY and BTC

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as exchange rates are the ratio between two currencies.

So it follows that if you are determining the best time to transact, in this case the JPY vs BTC, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Japanese Yen and Bitcoin:


Japanese Yen (JPY) outlook

The yen was the star performer in the weeks leading up to this report (May-17), with appreciation driven by a flight to safety following a serious escalation in the US-China trade war. The benchmark yen rate, USD/JPY, was down in the mid-109s, having been as high as 112.4 in late April. Relatively speaking, against their April highs, other yen rates had fallen even more (NZD/JPY was down from 76 to 71.6).

In May, 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.

Bitcoin (BTC) outlook

Sentiment towards cryptocurrencies has really picked up in 2019, and by recent standards bitcoin is thriving. On May-7, bitcoin was on course to post its eleventh weekly gain from the past fourteen weeks, and at $6,325, it was at its highest level since November. Daily trading ranges, though, are still much lower than investors became used to in parts of 2017 and 2018, but that is arguably a good thing.

In April, promising DataLight research highlighted real-world use for bitcoin: at $3.4 trillion, bitcoin’s total volume for payments in 2018 nearly caught up with Mastercard ($5.9 trillion) and dwarfed PayPal ($578 billion), and it was especially popular as a vehicle for transferring large sums.

Though the upscaling problem must first be solved, DataLight believes bitcoin is “almost certain [to become] the world’s main payment system,” and this justifies much higher bitcoin prices. It forecasts new all-time highs above $20,000.

US-based Galaxy Digital wrote in May that it couldn’t see $10,000 this year, but we might get to that level in the first or second quarters of 2020.

Why can't I just get the JPY/BTC market rate I see online or in the media?

The JPY/BTC mid-rate is the rate you will see quoted online or the news, nobody except the largest banks and businesses can get exchange rates close to this mid-rate. It is actually just the theoretical half-way point (hence mid-rate) between the last rate at which the JPY / BTC was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

Getting a good market rate is mainly about timing however the transaction margin you end up being charged can be considerably reduced by around a few percent (of total amount being exchanged) for travel money and possibly over 5% to 6% when sending money. The exact potential savings depends on the currencies being exchanged and the amount you are transferring and if you are willing to shop around.

Our real-time foreign transfer and travel money/cards comparison calculators make shopping around easy and help you calculate how much you can save.
