Last quote by Junichi Ishikawa

The focal point is how long the ECB decides to spend on tapering its bond buying. If the ECB opts to spend more than six months to taper, it will lead to thoughts that it won't be able to move onto hiking interest rates until 2019. The ECB could be seen as dovish in such a case and in turn weigh on the euro.feedback

Junichi Ishikawa quotes

Apr 18 2017 - Japan

For dollar/yen, the main focus will be on what kind of pressure the United States could apply on Japan as basically U.S. trade policy is linked with a policy for a weaker dollar. The yen cannot simply continue weakening along with higher stocks under such conditions.feedback

Apr 12 2017 - French election 2017

There was a lot of bids and option barriers lined up around 110 yen, so a breach of this level shows how widespread the latest dollar selling was. The yen's gains against the euro also bears watching, with uncertainty towards the French presidential elections clearly the driving factor.feedback

Mar 29 2017

The market may have gotten ahead of itself on its expectations towards the ECB ending its easy policy and the news helped temper such speculation. That said, the ECB seems set on finding a way out of its easy policy, so it would be difficult for the euro to keep declining. It is no longer a case of the euro being sold on easy policy expectations, with German bund yields settled firmly in positive territory.feedback

Feb 22 2017

Of chief interest to the market right now is whether the Fed can still raise rates in March, and the meeting minutes did not suggest that a hike next month is no longer a possibility.feedback

Feb 17 2017

The dollar did rally in spurts this week but the surge lacked strong conviction. For example dollar/yen failed to take out the 115.00 threshold.

The yuan was a key catalyst that bears watching but it is not the only factor. There were large amounts of dollar long positions, particularly against the euro and yen, that found an opportunity to be unwound.feedback

Dec 14 2016

The rate hike projections for 2017 being increased to three shows that Fed's board is having to factor in the impact of Trump's policies.feedback

Dec 14 2016

The focus now falls on U.S. equities and whether they can withstand the surging dollar and Treasury yields. If not, we could see the Trump camp warn against the appreciation of the dollar.feedback

Dec 06 2016

Of biggest interest for currencies is whether the ECB will hint at policy tapering. It could spell the beginning of the end of the Trump rally if the ECB does provide such a hint.feedback

Nov 09 2016

Nov 04 2016

The market is likely to greet a strong payrolls report with a straight forward enough response and bid the dollar higher. But the rise could fade quickly amid the 'Trump risk' woes.feedback

Oct 13 2016

Whether the latest bull phase by the dollar is real or not depends on how the various U.S. asset markets can co-exist with the prospects of a Fed hike. While it is plain to see that higher Treasury yields are pushing up the dollar, equities are also up. Dollar/yen has climbed above 104 amid lessened demand for the yen as the stock markets are holding up.feedback

Aug 17 2016

Hawkish views from Fed officials can prompt short covering in the dollar, but they are not sufficient enough to kick off an uptrend. This is because the markets now expect only one or two rate hikes this year, when at the end of 2015 they had expected up to four.feedback

The dollar could suffer a sudden fall, with the Dow possibly falling any time now following days of successive record highs.feedback

Jul 21 2016 - Commonwealth

The dollar continues to benefit from the strength in U.S. equities, which have gone a head above their global peers and are attracting money thanks to high dividends, with strong earnings also helping. This has resulted in 'risk on', sustaining the dollar's rise against the yen.feedback

The euro falling against the dollar shows the impact negative German bond yields are having. The markets have to brace for the European Union falling into dysfunction if Britain leaves.feedback

Jun 08 2016

A June U.S. rate hike is now out of the question and the focus is whether the Fed provides any hints of a July hike. There are no major U.S. indicators until the Fed's policy meeting next week, and the dollar is likely to remain bearish until then.feedback

May 24 2016

The yen gained as risk aversion overcame the Fed officials' hawkish views. Upward pressure on the yen was stronger due to weaker stocks and falling commodities.feedback

Apr 06 2016 - Japan

Japan will host the G7 summit in May. It cannot afford to invite almost guaranteed criticism by intervening through yen-selling after it adopted negative interest rates.feedback

Apr 06 2016

The authorities also have to keep U.S. political developments in mind, as presidential hopefuls Trump and Clinton have both been critical of Japan's stance on currencies.feedback
