Currency news and forecasts for Japanese Yen and British Pound Sterling

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 GBP, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and British Pound Sterling 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.

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

31-December-18: UK politics was in a state of disarray in December and a no-deal Brexit was still on the table. As a result, December saw sterling strike a 20-month low against the dollar ($1.248) and a 3-1/2-month low against the euro (€1.1) — 17 percent less than it had been worth relative to each currency prior to 2016's referendum on EU membership.

Impact of no-deal: The Bank of England has predicted a shocking 25 percent loss in the pound’s value in the event of a “disorderly” no-deal Brexit, under which there will be serious border delays and a marked loss of confidence in Britain’s financial institutions.

In the more likely event of a milder, “disruptive” no-deal Brexit, under which goods face tariffs but flow somewhat easily, sterling still loses 15 percent, the BoE believes.

How likely is no-deal? Less than a 30 percent chance, suggested an expert at Swedish bank SEB late in the year — no-deal was certainly far less likely than markets were pricing in, which made sterling significantly undervalued.

SEB forecast minimum appreciation to €1.1765 for GBP/EUR and alluded to rates around $1.37 for GBP/USD, or much higher should Brexit be cancelled via a second referendum or other means.
