Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Japanese Yen and Malaysian Ringgit
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 MYR, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and Malaysian Ringgit news and forecasts.
Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts
The yen has fallen steadily against the US dollar since March. By October 1st, the day of this report, it had reached a ten-month low of ¥114, mainly as monetary policies in the US and Japan continue to diverge. The yen also fell to an eight-month low versus the trade deal-boosted Canadian dollar (¥89.17) but was largely unchanged in the March-September period against other major currencies.
With Japanese monetary policy remaining dull and extremely loose (Japan continues to pursue inflation via extremely low interest rates), the source of yen upside for the remainder of 2018 is likely to be restricted to possible event risk, which might come in the form of a no-deal Brexit, negative political developments in Italy or heightened trade tensions between the US and China.
In October, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe stands in an LDP leadership contest. Should Abe fail in his bid to secure a third term as leader (highly unlikely), the yen would gain on speculation of a change in economic policies.
In October, Citibank offered 6-12-month yen forecasts of ¥114 to the US dollar, unchanged on its rate at the time of writing, and ¥128 to the euro—¥131.3 as of writing.
Malaysian Ringgit (MYR) - Market news and forecasts
The ringgit lost more than 5 percent of its value against the dollar between April and August 10th – the date of this report. At a rate of 4.083 per dollar, the ringgit appeared undervalued, with several analysts suggesting a push back towards 3.8-3.9, however this would take time.
Weakness in the ringgit was partly a contagion effect derived from chaos in other emerging market currencies, specifically the Turkish lira and Argentine peso, but also the effect of May’s shock election result which saw the incumbent Barisan Nasional coalition lose power in Malaysia for the first time in sixty years. A massive amount of US protectionism in 2018 has also played a part due to negative ramifications for global trade.
Deutsche Bank said in August that the ringgit was the most attractive investment proposition among all 22 emerging market currencies that it assessed.
