Japanese Yen Price Outlook: USD/JPY, EUR/JPY Risk of Lower Levels

Japanese Yen Price Outlook: USD/JPY, EUR/JPY Risk of Lower Levels

Justin McQueen, Analyst

JPY Price Analysis and Talking Points:

  • Option Markets Point to Lower USD/JPY
  • EUR/JPY May Head Lower on WTO Ruling

Amid the current backdrop of the continued political limbo in the UK, alongside US trade tensions with China and the EU as well as political noise emanating from the US in regard to President Trump’s impeachment inquiry, risk appetite could be in for a pullback. In the currency market, this has been cognisant across options, in particular, USD/JPY risk reversals, which highlight potential for downside losses in the pair as JPY calls trade at a premium to puts. However, there has been a slight divergence between the spot rate and risk reversals (Figure 1), in which the later signals a move towards 106.50.

Japanese Yen Price Outlook: USD/JPY, EUR/JPY Risk of Lower Levels

EUR/JPY | US vs EU on Trade Dispute

EUR/JPY is at risk of heading lower as the WTO is expected to rule that the US will be able to place sanctions of nearly $8bln on EU goods in relation to illegal state aid provided to Airbus, with the ruling set on Monday. In turn, this could place markets attention towards a US and EU trade dispute provided the EU retaliates and as a reminder, the deadline in which the US could place auto tariffs on the EU is approaching. Thus, this could place further pressure on EUR/JPY from here on.
