RBS:FX Trading Strategy-Rapid deterioration in JPY fundamentals

"Viewpoint

The real yield spread suggests USD/JPY can trade to new long term cyclical highs. Rapid trade balance deterioration further undermines JPY. EM tensions have helped boost JPY, but in light of clear fundamental shifts against the JPY, we see significant upside potential.

Rapid deterioration in JPY fundamentals

We thought the market might be more unsettled by the weak Chinese flash PMI. However, after the initial reaction there was little follow through in Asia and EM…

UBS Morning Adviser: AUD's China Impulse Minimal

"TSF figures losing relevance for Australia

The RBA minutes overnight affirmed the effects of expansionary policy but warned the economy was below-trend. Yet, optimism is tempting: Australia's data surprises have generally been on a six-month uptrend, and expectations may run high for a further export boost in the wake of China's record total social financing numbers (TSF). While this position has merits, we expect TSF numbers' impact on AUD to be marginal at best: the burden of price…

UBS Morning adviser: Yen Getting Interesting Again

"Case Builds For Further BoJ Easing

Suddenly it all seems to be going wrong for USDJPY. An interview with GPIF President Mitani in the weekend press suggests that any diversification of the pension fund’s portfolio away from JGBs is likely to proceed very gradually. Elsewhere, media reports claim new language could be inserted into the upcoming G20 communique, to discourage the practice of conducting monetary policy with the intention of affecting

exchange rates. Then finally, adding…

UBS - This Week's Key Points: Yellen unlikely to row back from Fed tapering

UBS - "In the week ahead Federal Reserve Chairwoman Yellen appears before Congress and Bank of England Governor Carney will present the February Inflation Report. (...) policymakers in both the US and UK are likely to signal interest rate increases will still only start from next year.

UBS FX Morning Adviser: The Yen-Independence Mirage

"The Yen-Independence Mirage

Gareth Berry



Still exposed to FX after all



Japanese investors have been slow to embrace FX risk in the wake the BoJ's QQE program - at least that's the common interpretation of official portfolio flow data.

Sizeable flows into foreign bonds have so far failed to materialise. Japanese investors have even sold overseas stocks and ploughed the proceeds back into domestic equities. Flows into Toushin funds show where the money is headed, and…

UBS - Morning Adviser - Euro Vulnerabilities Rising

"Act III, Scene I

The FX market’s most liquid currency pair does not fall easily. In 2010, it took the threat of a Greek sovereign default to trigger a sharp decline in EURUSD. In 2012, the inconclusive outcome of the first of Greece’s two general elections did the damage. This time around, the threat of Eurozone deflation – and the policy response which might be provoked to avoid it – has the potential to push EURUSD closer to our end- 2014 forecast of 1.25. To be clear, UBS economics…

US payrolls will be the key data release and jobs reports will also be out in New Zealand and Canada.

RBNZ: When, Not If-UBS FX Morning Adviser

"A question of when, not if.

There has not been a policy rate adjustment in New Zealand since March 2011, when a 50bp ‘insurance cut’ followed in the wake of the Canterbury earthquake.

A lot has changed since, and the case for a rate hike in the coming weeks seems compelling: CPI is moving back to target and rising fast; business confidence is running high; the terms of trade are still elevated. House prices continue to boom too, despite cooling measures introduced in October – and…
