    Could the Japanese Yen Bounce Back This Week?

    The Japanese yen (JYN), a safe haven asset, has failed to appreciate despite an increase in uncertainty in recent weeks. Despite ongoing trade war concerns and the US-led attack on Syrian chemical weapon facilities, the yen fell. In the week ended April 13, the yen (FXY) closed at 107.3 against the US dollar (UUP), depreciating by 0.38%.

    US Dollar Falls after Trump Comments on April 16

    The US dollar (UUP) came under pressure after Donald Trump, in a tweet, accused Russia and China “playing the Currency Devaluation game as the U.S. keeps raising interest rates. Not acceptable!” Trump’s complaint has been interpreted as an attempt to escalate tensions to achieve favorable trade negotiation terms. According to the latest Commitment of Traders report, released on April 13 by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, large speculators and traders have increased their short positions on the US dollar for a third consecutive week. This amount is a combination of the US dollar’s contracts against the combined contracts of the euro (FXE), British pound (FXB), Japanese yen (FXY), Australian dollar (FXA), Canadian dollar (FXC), and Swiss franc.

    What’s in Store for the Japanese Yen This Week?

    FOMC Could Decide the Fate of the US Dollar This Week

    The US Dollar Index appreciated for a fourth consecutive week due in part to the impressive industrial production and consumer confidence numbers that were reported at the end of the previous week. Earlier in the previous week, lower-than-expected inflation growth and retail sales numbers had little impact on the US dollar as markets have already priced in a rate hike from the US Fed at its March meeting. The turmoil in the White House had a marginal negative impact on the US dollar as the pressure from the Mueller probe reached the Trump businesses last week.

    Why the Japanese Yen Depreciated Last Week

    The Japanese yen (JYN) lost out to increased risk appetite thanks to softer-than-expected tariffs and the positive geopolitical development involving US President Donald Trump and North Korea’s Kim Jong Un. Also driving the yen higher were the comments from the Bank of Japan’s governor, Haruhiko Kuroda, who tried to take back his comments about the policy shift toward tightening. For the week ended March 9, the yen (FXY) closed at 106.80 compared to the US dollar (UUP), an appreciation of 0.99%.

    Trade Tensions Could Push the Japanese Yen Higher

    The Japanese yen (JYN) regained its strength against the US dollar. The other factor that contributed to the yen’s appreciation was the comment from Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda. Kuroda used the word “exit” when referring to the central bank’s accommodative monetary policy program.

    What to Expect from the US Dollar This Week

    The US Dollar Index closed the previous week with minor gains, but the index suffered after the announcement about tariffs last week. Historically, US tariffs on imports have been negative for the US dollar. If the current proposal becomes a law, the US dollar could have a similar fate.

    Why the US Fed Could Drive the Japanese Yen This Week

    The Japanese yen (JYN) gave up some of its gains in the previous week as the US dollar appreciated on the back of the increased odds of US rate hikes in the near future. The US dollar received a boost from the FOMC meeting minutes, which indirectly had a negative impact on the Japanese yen. Improved economic indicators from Japan did little to boost the yen last week.

    Why the US Dollar Managed to Stay Afloat Last Week

    The US Dollar Index returned to strength as risk appetite remained stable and the FOMC minutes signaled further tightening through interest rate hikes. Higher interest rates in the US could lead to the appreciation of the US dollar against its trading partners. The other reason for the US dollar’s appreciation is the weakness in the euro, which was triggered by the dovish statement from the European Central Bank.

    Why the Japanese Yen Could Give Up Recent Gains

    The Japanese yen (JYN) managed to hold on to its gains from the past two weeks despite the increase in risk appetite.

The surprise was that the yen held on to its gains during the market rebound.

    Why the Japanese Yen Has Outperformed Other Currencies

    The Japanese yen (JYN), along with the US dollar, saw a sharp increase in demand as risk aversion gripped global markets. The yen is considered a safe haven in times of market sell-offs because of its current account surplus. In the week ended February 9, the yen (FXY) closed at 108.80 against the US dollar (UUP), appreciating by 1.2%. Japanese equity markets (EWJ) fell sharply, reacting to the global market sell-off, with the Nikkei 225 (JPXN) posting a loss of 8.1% in the week ended February 9.

Amid an unassertive flight to safety, gold ETFs took third place in the list, while volatility was last. Aerospace & defense ETFs also trended, taking fourth position.

    Why the Japanese Yen Depreciated against the Dollar Last Week

    The Japanese yen (JYN) retracted against the US dollar last week as US dollar bulls tried to take control. A hawkish Federal Reserve along with a strong jobs report and wage growth gave some reason for the dollar bulls to cheer, and that resulted in a decrease in demand for the Japanese yen. For the week ended February 2, the Japanese yen (FXY) closed at 110.16 against the US dollar (UUP), depreciating 1.3%.
