    FXStreet (Delhi) – Mansoor Mohi-Uddin, Senior Market Strategist at RBS, notes that the Q4’15 Tankan shows Japanese corporate sentiment holding up despite strong slowdown in emerging economies.

    Key Quotes

    • “Large manufacturers’ index unchanged at solid +12, large non-manufacturers’ also unchanged at +25, the high since 1991.

    • The outlooks were less encouraging with large manufacturers’ falling to +7 and large non-manufacturers’ dipping to +23.

    • But Tankan shows sentiment sufficiently resilient to keep BoJ on hold until at least after spring’s wage round.

    • Last month Governor Kuroda flagged a fall in business investment as one of two risks that would induce more BoJ easing.

    • Dollar-yen to stay capped at 120-125 as Fed hikes while BoJ refrains from fresh stimulus. Yen to keep gaining on crosses.”
