Yen Falls as Stocks Rise, Canadian Dollar Tracks Crude Oil Lower

Yen Falls as Stocks Rise, Canadian Dollar Tracks Crude Oil Lower

Ilya Spivak, Head Strategist, APAC

Talking Points:

The Japanese Yen underperformed in overnight trade, falling against all of its top counterparts. Swelling risk appetite appeared to be behind the selloff, with the anti-risk currency falling inversely of gains in S&P 500 futures and Japan’s benchmark Nikkei 225 stock index.

Meanwhile, the US Dollar continued to push higher as comments from St. Louis Fed President James Bullard appeared to reinforce a cautiously hawkish tone from Fed Chair Janet Yellen last week. Bullard said global markets appear well-prepared for a possible US rate hike, suggesting fears of triggering a panic many not hold back the resumption of stimulus withdrawal.

The Australian and New Zealand Dollars bore the brunt of the greenback’s advance as the threat of on-coming tightening exerted outsized pressure on currencies whose primary appeal is their yield-bearing properties. The Canadian Dollar declined alongside crude oil prices in a move that may reflect pre-positioning for this week’s OPEC meeting.

Looking ahead, German CPI figures headline the economic calendar in European trading hours. The headline year-on-year inflation rate is expected to rise to 0.1 percent. The report seems unlikely to generate a strong response from the Euro considering the outcome’s limited implications for near-term ECB policy trends as the central bank waits to evaluate the impact of a suite of stimulus measures unveiled earlier.
