Currency News, Research and Forecasts for Japanese Yen and Thai Baht

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 THB, you should pay attention to both Japanese Yen and Thai Baht 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.

Thai Baht (THB) - Market news and forecasts

The baht lost nearly 7 percent of its value against the dollar between April and August 10th (the date of this report) as USD/THB rose to 33.32, from 31.1.

Weakness in the baht was partly a contagion effect derived from chaos this year in other emerging market currencies, specifically the Turkish lira and Argentine peso, but was also the result of massive amounts of US protectionism, which threaten global trade.

Unlike other emerging market central banks, many of which were under great pressure to tighten monetary policy in the middle of the year (necessary to curb inflation and/or currency depreciation), the Bank of Thailand is expected to leave its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 1.5 percent throughout the rest of 2018. A senior official at the BoT said in July that the first rate hike in Thailand since 2011 might become a reality if second-quarter GDP growth (due on August 20th) matches or exceeds 4.5 percent. There is little pressure on the BoT as Thai inflation remains extremely low, at just 1.46 percent.

In August, Scotiabank was optimistic on the baht. The Canadian bank advised selling USD/THB on rallies as it believed in an eventual agreement between the US and China on trade, and said that trade-related baht weakness would be reversed.

Why can't I just get the same JPY/THB market rate I see on Google or in the Media?

The JPY/THB mid-rate is the rate you will see Quoted on Google 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 / THB was traded (bought or sold) in the international markets.

When you look up the current Japanese Yen to Thai Baht exchange rate on the web the figure you find quoted on sites like google or mentioned on TV is commonly referred to as the mid-market rate.

Getting a great JPY to THB mid-market rate is all about timing, so unless you are able to wait, watch and time the market this is largely beyond your control. This rate will go up and down with varying amounts of volatility depending on the currency pair.

This mid-market rate is really only a reference and is just the starting point for calculating the actual rate you will get for your transaction, luckily we can also use this same rate to determine how good a deal a rate that a provider offers you actually is.
