Japanese Yen Outperforms as Nikkei Leads Asian Stocks Lower

Japanese Yen Outperforms as Nikkei Leads Asian Stocks Lower

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

The Japanese Yen outperformed amid carry trade liquidation as the Nikkei continued to lead Asian stock exchanges lower.

Talking Points

  • Japanese Yen Outperforms as Nikkei Continues to Lead Asian Stocks Lower
  • FX Markets at Risk of Knee-Jerk Trade as Liquidity Drops on UK, US Holidays

The Japanese Yen outperformed in overnight trade, rising as much as 0.6 percent against its top counterparts, as risk appetite floundered in Asian trade and encouraged an unwinding of carry trades funded in the low-yielding currency. The MSCI Asia Pacific regional benchmark stock index fell 1.1 percent.

Japan’s Nikkei 225 index led the way lower, sliding as much as 4 percent. We see recent liquidation in Japanese shares and the parallel recovery in the Yen as a reflection of profit-taking in the absence of new catalysts to propel policy speculation until the effectiveness of “Abenomics” can be credibly assessed.

Looking ahead, market holidays in the UK and the US will keep the world’s largest FX dealing centers offline, making for particularly low liquidity conditions. This is likely to make for a quiet day, although traders would be wise to remember that price swings can be amplified by thin markets can in the event of a major dislocation. This makes exchange rates particularly vulnerable to headline risk and caution is prudent.
