USD/JPY Falls Hard as US Election Results Pour In

USD/JPY Falls Hard as US Election Results Pour In

Jeremy Wagner, CEWA-M, Head of Education

USD/JPY dropped 240 pips in about 30 minutes as US presidential election results begin to emerge. Donald Trump is drawing closer to winning some close battleground states increasing his odds of winning the overall election.

Though we can’t say for sure how the market will react, this type of market movement is hinting that a Donald Trump presidency may signal risk aversion, US Dollar weakness, or possibly a fall in rates. USD/JPY has been correlated to each of those three outcomes from time to time.

What is particularly interesting to me is that the Fed funds futures were showing a chance of a December 2016 rate hike in the low 80’s. Would a Trump presidency pull the rate hike off the table and lead to broad based US Dollar weakness?

Other JPY markets may feel the effect of USD/JPY weakness like EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY.
