According to analysts from Danske Bank, is difficult to image what will stop the downtrend in USD/JPY. They point out that a game changed could be a helicopter drop of policies. Key Quotes: “Another pressure point is building in USD/JPY where negative interest rates have been anything else other than effective. USD/JPY has fallen 11.27% since the Bank of Japan (BoJ) enacted negative interest rates in late January.” “Negative rates have hit Japanese banking stocks, Nikkei and thereby USD/JPY in line with the usual correlation. Near term, it is difficult to imagine what will stop the downtrend in USD/JPY as Japanese policymakers are unlikely to follow through with actual FX intervention just yet.” “Like the EUR, the JPY is undervalued and Japan is running a large current account surplus, which implies that the ‘natural gravity’ is for a lower USD/JPY. A possible deeper rate cut into negative terrain at the BoJ’s meeting in late April would be likely to have only a short-term impact on the JPY.” “Instead, a game changer could be a ‘helicopter drop’ of policies with a combination of aggressive fiscal stimulus, postponement of the planned consumption tax hike next year and more quantitative and qualitative monetary policy.” For more information, read our latest forex news.
