A 3,500-pip run for EURUSD over 10 months and 4,300-pip trend over two years for USDJPY both draw heavily from monetary policy. Whether policy officials' direct intentions or not, changes in policy bearings - and especially divergent efforts - generate significant change in exchange rates. For the Dollar, a march towards hikes and normalization has launched the Dollar higher. Alternatively, QE programs from the ECB and BoJ have driven the Euro and Yen sharply lower over different time frames. Moving forward, these fundamental currents will continue to push the market; but their potential for momentum and volatility are moderating as trends mature and expectations are efficiently priced.
