Market Fundamental Analysis by RoboForex

JPY has strengthened. Overview for 27.05.2024

The Japanese yen has moderately risen against the US dollar. The current USDJPY pair stands at 156.73.

Bank of Japan monetary policymakers are actively commenting on current developments. Bank of Japan Governor Kazuo Ueda noted that it is premature to address interest rate issues until inflation expectations consolidate. Assessing a fair, neutral interest rate level is currently very difficult.

His colleague, Bank of Japan Deputy Governor Shinichi Uchida, believes the BoJ is close to completing its battle against deflation. He noted that wage growth will likely continue. Japan has been combating deflation for over a decade and has yet to be successful.

Previously released inflation data exerted local pressure on the yen. The overall consumer price index decreased to 2.5% in April from 2.7% in March. April’s core inflation fell to 2.2% from 2.6% in March, marking the second consecutive month of decline. These are not the most favourable figures.

The Bank of Japan continues to fight for stable prices. The interest rate will remain unchanged until signs of confidence in this area emerge.

EUR continues to rise. Overview for 28.05.2024

The primary currency pair is experiencing upward momentum. The current EURUSD exchange rate stands at 1.0875.

The currency market is witnessing an encouraging surge in risk appetite, bolstering the euro’s position and exerting pressure on the US dollar. The US currency is holding within narrow ranges against its major competitors ahead of Friday’s core PCE report. The inflation release is expected to provide investors with more data for insight into the Federal Reserve’s future monetary actions.

The European Central Bank has made neutral comments, while German statistics have reflected a deterioration in business sentiment in May.

Germany will release inflation data on Wednesday, and the eurozone will publish its reports on Friday. These figures are of utmost importance ahead of the ECB’s June meeting. Investors are eager to know how soon the ECB might ease monetary policy.

Inflation in the eurozone may continue to slow. If so, the European regulator has every argument to prepare for an interest rate cut next week.

JPY is gradually retreating. Overview for 29.05.2024

The Japanese yen is declining against the US dollar on Wednesday. The current USDJPY exchange rate stands at 157.24.

The instrument is currently at a four-week high. The yen has returned to the levels observed before Tokyo intervened to support the national currency in late April and early May.

On 29 April, the US dollar reached a 34-year peak of 160.24 yen, prompting at least two currency interventions by the Japanese monetary authorities. According to various estimates, about nine trillion yen or more (57.21 billion USD) was spent to support the weak yen. The JPY exchange rate stabilised and recouped some losses, but not for long.

The Japanese monetary authorities continue to make verbal interventions, which have no impact on the market. As the market suggests, without real actions, the dollar-yen exchange rate will rapidly return to levels preceding the intervention.

The Bank of Japan may expect an interest rate hike if a sharp weakening of the yen rate leads to inflationary growth.

EURUSD is under selling pressure. Overview for 30.05.2024

The primary currency pair looks relatively weak on Thursday. The current exchange rate for EURUSD is 1.0792.

Yesterday, a substantial rise in US government bond yields significantly impacted the US dollar, pulling it up and causing a dramatic shift in sentiment in the currency market and a subsequent decrease in risk appetite.

Expectations for a Federal Reserve interest rate cut this year have decreased amid signs of persistent inflation. According to the CME FedWatch monitor, the likelihood of a rate cut at the September meeting is estimated at 56.6%, down from 57.5% a week earlier. However, there is much discussion in the market that the rate cut might occur in November instead of September, which is essential to bear in mind.

The Fed itself has not provided any additional comments on this matter.

The release of revised US GDP statistics for Q1 today is expected to be a significant event, potentially leading to increased volatility.

EUR is growing, but the dollar is gloomy. Overview for 31.05.2024

The primary currency pair is gaining on Friday. The current exchange rate for EURUSD is 1.0817.

The US dollar stabilised by today, but it noticeably weakened the evening before. This development was attributed to the publication of the second estimate of the US GDP for Q1 2024. The data do not rule out the possibility of US Federal Reserve interest rate cuts this year.

The statistics showed that GDP increased by only 1.3% y/y in January-March, while the first estimate reflected a 1.6% rise. This deterioration in the data has opened the door for the Fed to consider at least one rate cut by the end of the year. The market's current assessment of the likelihood of monetary policy easing at the September meeting stands at 55%, compared to 51% a day earlier.

Today, the market focuses on the Core PCE, the Fed's preferred inflation component. By this evening, the market will have more data on which to base speculations about the Federal Reserve's monetary policy outlook.

NZD continues its ascent. Overview for 03.06.2024

The New Zealand dollar is rising against the US dollar. The current NZDUSD exchange rate stands at 0.6142.

Trading volumes for the NZD appear relatively small at the beginning of the week due to the market pause in observance of the King's Birthday.

The main support for the NZD now is the weak US dollar. The US Personal Consumption Expenditures index, Core PCE, for April, released on Friday, was in line with expectations at 2.7% y/y, allowing the US Federal Reserve to lower the interest rate this year. The dollar has naturally weakened while other currencies have risen.

Maintaining high interest rates in New Zealand supports the NZD's position despite some weakening in the domestic economy.

Earlier, the RBNZ reaffirmed its hawkish stance on monetary policy, surprising many by considering an interest rate hike. Meanwhile, inflation expectations remain unchanged, slightly reducing the likelihood of monetary policy tightening.

EUR has surged. Overview for 04.06.2024

The primary currency pair continues to climb higher on Tuesday. The current EURUSD exchange rate stands at 1.0908.

The US dollar has retreated to its lowest value since 21 March as signs of persisting weakening in the US economy strengthen arguments for an imminent interest rate cut by the US Federal Reserve. The US ISM manufacturing PMI in May decreased to 48.7 points from the previous 49.2, falling short of expectations.

According to the LSEG monitor, the likelihood of a Federal Reserve rate cut in September is currently estimated at 59.1% compared to 55.0% on Friday. This anticipation is further heightened by growing expectations, which were no more than 50.0% early last week. The employment market data for May, particularly the wage parameters, which are significant in the context of inflation, will be crucial this week.

The Federal Reserve’s next meeting will conclude on 12 June, and the latest consumer price data will be released that day. Although no risk is expected at this meeting, the Federal Reserve must update its economic forecasts.

CAD has strengthened. Overview for 06.06.2024

The Canadian dollar, paired with the US dollar, has strengthened. The current USDCAD exchange rate stands at 1.3678.

In the medium term, the pair remains within a wide sideways channel.

Yesterday, the Bank of Canada reduced the interest rate for the first time in four years to 4.75% per annum from the previous 5.00%. The regulator cited the progress achieved in its battle against inflation as an argument for this decision. According to the Bank of Canada’s press release, the core Consumer Price Index is declining, providing a reason to abandon restrictive monetary policy.

At least four inflation components improved significantly, including core inflation, the core price index with its median and average values, and the 3-month moving average.

Some CPI components rose by over 3%, close to a historical average value.

JPY takes a pause. Overview for 07.06.2024

The Japanese yen is stable against the US dollar on Friday. The current USDJPY exchange rate is 155.57.

Investors refrain from making significant decisions ahead of next week's BoJ meeting. The regulator is expected to maintain interest rates unchanged. The market is closely monitoring monthly bond purchases. A potential reduction in figures could signal a gradual tightening of monetary policy.

Bank of Japan Governor Kazuo Ueda confirmed this week that the central bank will gradually reduce its extensive balance sheet. The timing of such an undertaking remains uncertain.

In March 2024, the Bank of Japan phased out its negative interest rate policy, which had been in place for eight years. At the same time, it scrapped its yield curve control program as Japan set its sights on normalising monetary policy.

EUR fell to a four-week low. Overview for 10.06.2024

The primary currency pair continues to plummet on Monday. The current EURUSD exchange rate stands at 1.0795.

The euro faced two substantial pressure factors. Firstly, there were political developments in France, where the pro-presidential forces lost the European Parliament elections to the far-right. French President Emmanuel Macron called snap elections after his party’s defeat to Marine Le Pen’s far-right, which crushed it by nearly half.

Secondly, investors have adjusted their expectations about the Federal Reserve interest rate trajectory following Friday’s US employment market statistics. In anticipation of the Federal Reserve meeting this week, the impact of such a driver is considerably strong.

Non-farm payrolls expanded by 272 thousand last month from the previous 165 thousand, while the unemployment rate increased to 4.0% from 3.9% in April. Average hourly earnings rose by 0.4% m/m in May, twice as high as the April reading.

The EURUSD pair will experience very high volatility this week.
