Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Japanese Yen and Chinese Yuan

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 JPY vs CNY, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and Chinese Yuan news and forecasts.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

Approaching the middle of August, the yen is the best performing currency of the year. Although it holds only a modest 1.7 percent gain over the US dollar (110.81) year-to-date, it's up handsomely elsewhere. Versus the Australian dollar (80.92), euro (126.43) and pound (141.60), the yen has gained an average of 8 percent.

The yen has been widely sought by investors in recent months due to its safe haven status. Investors have become more risk averse following chaos in emerging markets, led by Turkey and Argentina, and Washington’s massive tariffs on imported goods, which threaten global trade. The yen has also benefitted from speculation that the Bank of Japan will soon make changes to its ultra-loose monetary policy. Although low by international standards, yields on Japanese government bonds have risen to long-term highs and are now double 2017 averages.

In August, SEB was forecasting end-of-September rates of: EUR/JPY, 122; USD/JPY, 111; AUD/JPY, 82.

Chinese Yuan (CNY) - Market news and forecasts

Trade developments have dominated yuan news flow in recent months. The yuan weakened to a 15-month low against the dollar in early August, at 6.89. The yuan heavily underperformed Asian currencies in the months leading up to this report but had recovered slightly by August 10th to levels around 6.845.

Washington has announced this year that it will impose tariffs on nearly $250 billion worth of Chinese goods and China has insisted it will defend its interests with tariffs of its own and other measures. The yuan has weakened, said one analyst, due to concerns about a steeper economic slowdown in China which might result from a trade war.

In July, Citibank predicted an average USD/CNY rate of 6.6 for the second half of the year. The median estimate of forecasters polled in a recent Bloomberg survey had USD/CNY at 6.775 in three months’ time (by mid-November).
