javierito, yes US-JPY 10 year yield spread fell from its 6 mth high of May 7th but the major driver of yen strength is also speculative flows (futures,options and pure sport hedge funds).


Ed, yes. 70% chance S&P hit new lows. As for USDCAD, it seems we could still get 1.25 but not sure about 1.30s.. USD is severely weak. BofCanada will have to jump into qttve easing for 1.30 to happen

Ashraf, based on recent market developments, do you still see the S&P retesting lows and the USD/CAD going to 1.25?

Thanks,

Hi AShraf,
I like the correlation between oil and yen pairs.
But I see something that keeps me wondering and is that 10 year yield spreads are widening between euro or us and japan bond markets, so how long do you expect this yen strenghtening to last? Is this just an especulative movement from the futures market or is this more risk aversion on the table (VIX is going down and equities going up although in low volumes)?
Thanks

Rob, your technical argument against GBJPY is well taken but just bear in mind the pair is expensive. It is CHEAPER to SHORT AUDNZD as its pullsback after once again failing at 1.2850-70s. Daily chart calls for renewed triple failure top towards 1.2650

Hey Ashraf,

Would you say GBP/JPY is simply riding the coat-tails of GBP/USD? Obviously it's due to go up with risk appetite, but it's much stronger than EUR/JPY in my eyes, just as GBP/USD is showing more strength than EUR/USD. Do you see a good entry level for a short in GBP/JPY today? Looks like it's always been beaten down when attempting to surpass 150.30 in the past weeks and can't breach 149.50 today. Any thoughts are appreciated.

seems hard to keep a strong yen down. Bigger than exp decline in US housing starts pushed Dow furtures in red to the benefit of the USD and JPY but see how CADJPY and EURJPY near session lows.

Hi Rob, let's get thru Jpns indus production figs for March tomorrow at 430 am GMT then the Jpns Q1 GDP, which are notorious for their revisions. if we get that 16% annualized contraction, then things should be very bad for JPY, especially if we get another rally in the US tomorrow.
