Gold, Crude Oil Prices Fall as USD/JPY Rally Reverberates

Gold, Crude Oil Prices Fall as USD/JPY Rally Reverberates

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

A sharp surge in USD/JPY is echoing US Dollar strength across the financial markets and weighing on commodities denominated in terms of the benchmark currency. Gold prices are trading inversely of the greenback’s value against the Yen with near-perfect precision. Meanwhile, crude oil prices are diverging from broader sentiment trends, with the WTI contract under pressure even as shares prices march higher.

The Japanese unit sank on back of results from an election over the weekend that gave Prime Minister Shinzo Abe a mandate to pursue expansionary fiscal policy. This bolstered risk appetite – weighing on the standby anti-risk currency – while highlighting public support for Abe’s inflationary economic policy platform. S&P 500 futures are pointing decidedly higher ahead of the opening bell on Wall Street, hinting at more of the same in the hours ahead.

With that said, it remains to be seen whether the greenback will be able to sustain upside follow-through. The currency has reclaimed its safe-haven credentials in the aftermath of the Brexit referendum outcome to trading inversely of the MSCI World Stock index (a proxy for market-wide sentiment trends) in recent weeks. With priced-in Fed policy bets implying a rate hike is delayed until 2018, risk appetite is likely to remain as the most potent catalyst for USD price action.

If risk appetite continues to swell, investors may well turn away from the Dollar in favor of higher-yielding alternatives. Furthermore, heretofore haven-seeking capital flows buoying the buck may reverse course and undermine momentum. This may cap losses for commodities, at least in the near term.
