Japanese Yen Q3 Fundamental Outlook, Dow Jones and S&P 500 Eyed

Japanese Yen Q3 Fundamental Outlook, Dow Jones and S&P 500 Eyed

Daniel Dubrovsky, Strategist

Japanese Yen, Anti-Risk, Wall Street, Coronavirus, Q3 Outlook – TALKING POINTS

The Japanese Yen, known for its anti-risk trading dynamics, heads into the third quarter closely glued to broader market sentiment. On the chart below is my majors-based JPY index overlaid with my Wall Street index. Generally speaking, the two tend to have an inverse relationship.

As central banks around the world maintain a dovish tone to support economic growth hindered by the coronavirus outbreak, JPY is left potentially vulnerable as the Dow Jones, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite continue finding upside momentum.

Fiscal policy is more uncertain, especially as a gradual recovery from Covid-19 may reduce the urgency for more support and reintroduce political hurdles. Just this past week, the Democrat-lead US House of Representatives passed a US$1.5 trillion infrastructure package that is likely to be vetoed by President Donald Trump.

Delays to much-needed support could reintroduce volatility, opening the door to swift Yen appreciation. This is as US coronavirus cases rise at record daily amounts as of late and certain states take measures to reverse or halt lockdown-easing measures. Ahead, Canada’s jobs report will further inform global growth expectations.
