Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Japanese Yen and British Pound Sterling

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

British Pound Sterling (GBP) - Market news and forecasts

The British pound has slumped across the board in recent months amid uncertainty over Brexit (a “no-deal” divorce with the EU is now seen as most likely).

By August 10th, the pound had fallen versus the US dollar to a 14-month low of 1.2766, and versus the yen, to a 1-year low of 141.6. Versus the euro, the pound has spent much of the last 11 months trading between 1.11 and 1.15; it fetched 1.12 euros at the time of this report.

The pound got no support from the Bank of England’s decision in August to raise its benchmark interest rate to 0.75 percent – the highest since 2009. A member of the BOE’s decision-making board said in August that UK interest rates would need to stay low for at least another 20 years.

Official forecasts from Citibank place GBP/USD at 1.34 in 6-12 months’ time and GBP/EUR at 1.125. Over the same time horizon, Scotiabank sees GBP/USD rising to levels between 1.32 and 1.35, and GBP/EUR falling to 1.1.
