Why is USD/JPY Currency Going Down?

If you’re a currency trader, you probably wonder why the USD/JPY currency pair is going down. It is the case that the US economy is growing much faster than Japan’s, and the yen is under pressure as a result. Fortunately, the Japanese government has put into place several initiatives to support the economy. The Bank of Japan has also stepped up its bond-buying program to keep 10-year yields within its target range.

The USD/JPY currency pair’s price is determined by the economic laws of supply and demand, and the prices of the two currencies are closely tied to those of their national bonds. One way in which investors express their views on this pair is by using a carry trade. This type of transaction, which involves borrowing dollars in order to buy Japanese yen, deflates the Japanese yen. As such, carry trade is considered a bad indicator for the Japanese economy.

The USD/JPY currency pair is a reflection of market risk. When markets are seeking risk, Treasury bond yields rise and the Japanese yen drops. A falling yield is a sign of panic and weakens the U.S. dollar against the yen.

The yen is expected to continue declining in the near term. As long as the Fed pencils in more rate hikes this year and the BoJ sticks to its accommodative stance, the yen should stay under pressure and continue to fall. Even if the economy recovers, the BoJ may intervene if the Japanese yen falls much further.
