  • Fed's Kashkari: Maximum employment means at the very least back to pre-COVID levels of employment

  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed's interest rate dot plot has provided too-hawkish guidance in the past, I am in favor of getting rid of it - I don't believe the Delta variant of COVID will force the US to return to lockdown
  • Fed's Kashkari: - The Fed is in a decent financial position, therefore it is fine to talk about tapering monthly asset purchases - I am not seeing evidence of unanchored inflation expectations, but if that does occur then we would need to adjust

The anti-risk Japanese Yen was the best performing major on Friday, boosted by risk aversion that occurred during the beginning of the session. There, the Nikkei 225 and other indexes declined on reports that US President Donald Trump fired NSA Harold McMaster. However, Trump’s Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders played down this report soon after.

Sentiment-linked currencies like the Australian and New Zealand Dollars suffered as well. Losses were amplified during the second half of the day when the US Dollar rallied alongside government bond yields, sapping their appeal. Absent a major catalyst, the greenback’s push echoed Thursday’s performance which seemed to reflect pre-positioning for this week’s Fed rate decision. Being the anti-fiat asset, gold prices fell.

Retail trader data shows 71.7% of USD/JPY traders are net-long with the ratio of traders long to short at 2.53 to 1. In fact, traders have remained net-long since Dec 29 when USD/JPY traded near 112.595; price has moved 5.8% lower since then. The number of traders net-long is 3.3% lower than yesterday and 2.5% higher from last week, while the number of traders net-short is 11.8% lower than yesterday and 1.2% lower from last week.

We typically take a contrarian view to crowd sentiment, and the fact traders are net-long suggests USD/JPY prices may continue to fall. Traders are further net-long than yesterday and last week, and the combination of current sentiment and recent changes gives us a stronger USD/JPY-bearish contrarian trading bias.
