Rates @ 12/10/2018

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

The USD/JPY 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 USD / JPY 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.

The closer your final exchange rate is to the market USD/JPY midrate the better deal you are getting.

Currency News, Research and Forecasts for United States Dollar and Japanese Yen

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 USD vs JPY, you should pay attention to both United States Dollar and Japanese Yen news and forecasts.

United States Dollar (USD) - Market news and forecasts

2018 has been a good year for the dollar; certainly much better than 2017, in which the world’s reserve currency lost 10 percent of its value on a trade-weighted basis. Entering the third week of November 2018, the dollar stood nearly 5 percent higher than its level on January 1st. The dollar benefitted in the month leading up to this report from Brexit uncertainty in Europe and from a collapse in the oil market, which saw its value rise against petro-currencies.

Seasonality becomes an important supporting factor for the dollar approaching year-end, and especially in November. Since 2010, the dollar has averaged trade-weighted gains of 1.8 percent in November and 0.2 percent in December.

In September, Citibank said of the dollar’s 6-12-month outlook that 3-4 percent upside was likely, followed by an 11 percent loss in the long term. It predicted EUR/USD climbing as high as $1.30, from levels in the high $1.13s at the time of writing.

Like Citi, ING remain long-term bearish on the dollar. ING isn't ruling out interventions and jawboning from Washington aimed at weakening the dollar. President Trump clearly would like a far weaker currency.

J.P. Morgan said in November that the dollar would be worth slightly more in the first half of 2019, before weakening slightly in the second half of the year.

Japanese Yen (JPY) - Market news and forecasts

As December 2018 began, the yen was little changed year-to-date, at levels near 113.6 to the US dollar.

As year-end approached, analysts considered the yen’s future, and appeared to agree that the low-yielding currency would strengthen throughout 2019 and beyond.

The median estimate of economists polled by Bloomberg in December indicated USD/JPY — the benchmark yen exchange rate — falling to 105 by the end of 2019, which marks yen strength of 8 percent from December’s opening rate. 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.

At the time of writing, the yen was 5 percent higher on the year against both the euro and Australian dollar, at respective rates of 129 and 83.5.
