Currency news and forecasts for Japanese Yen and Chinese Yuan

Whenever you are researching a particular exchange rate you are actually interested in two currencies as the value of a currency must always be quoted relative to a second currency.

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

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

31-December-18: The yen was the best performing major currency of 2018. As 2019 rolled in, the Japanese currency touched a 6-month high against the dollar and a 4-month high against the euro. USD/JPY and EUR/JPY fell to respective rates of 109.7 and 125.5, marking yen strength for the year worth 2.7 percent and 7.6 percent.

In December, the yen — the FX world’s preferred safe haven — benefitted strongly from a notable switch to risk-off trading. Stock markets were volatile and falling hard and the prospect of further trade tensions and higher interest rates in 2019 unnerved investors.

Analysts appeared to agree in December that the yen would strengthen throughout 2019 and beyond.

The median estimate of economists polled by Bloomberg in December indicated USD/JPY would fall to 105 by the end of 2019. 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.

Chinese Yuan (CNY) - Market news and forecasts

11-January-19: A number of important developments in 2018 worked to reduce demand for the yuan, which lost 5 percent of its value relative to the dollar and 1 percent versus the euro.

Chief among negative developments was Washington’s agenda of trade protectionism. Tariffs make Chinese goods more expensive to American buyers, which lessens their appeal and necessitates a weaker yuan.

A tumbling Chinese stock market didn’t help the yuan either, as investors had little incentive to buy into Chinese companies and therefore one less reason to exchange local currency into yuan. The Shanghai Composite index fell 24 percent in 2018.

2019: The yuan has gotten off to a flyer in 2019. Following constructive trade talks between Washington and Beijing, the yuan traded at a 5-month high of ¥6.75 per dollar on the day of this report. The yuan is, however, still expected to weaken beyond the ¥7 mark against the dollar within the next 6 months, per a January poll of FX professionals. To reach ¥7 would be to have the yuan at its weakest level since 2008.
