Outlook and forecasts for JPY and KRW

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 KRW, you should pay attention to the forecasts and trends for both Japanese Yen and South Korean Won:


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.

South Korean Won (KRW) outlook

The South Korean won has been the worst-performing Asian currency in 2019.

At the time of writing, while most emerging Asian currencies were showing year-to-date gains against the dollar, the won had lost 1.8 percent, with weakness driven by falling exports and an alarming drop in South Korean inflation, which themselves drove expectations for an interest rate cut by the Bank of Korea, even though the BoK said in March that policy easing was not yet warranted.

In early April, at 1134 to the dollar, the won was trading near the weaker boundary of its trading range, which existed between 1110 and 1140 (this having contained most price action in the July-18 to April-19 period).

In April, TradingEconomics.com predicted that USD/KRW would rise to 1164 by April 2020. That's a level last seen in January 2017.

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

The JPY/KRW 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 / KRW 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.
