Analytical review:

Over the past 2 weeks the Yen has significantly strengthened its positions against the USD due to the increasing demand for the safe-haven currency. Mixed macro-economic data on the US economy has decreased a chance that the US Fed will tighten monetary policy. Further rise in the Yen was boosted by significant decline of Nikkei index due to crisis in the global economy. Concern about stability of the banking system of EU provoked sales of shares of the financial sector in the European and American markets, which contributed to the rise in the Yen. “Commitments of Traders” indicated the increase in demand for the currency. Large speculators have reduced short positions by 19676 contacts.. Long positions have increased by 6754 contracts.


In the past 2 weeks the Yen has grown in price by 650 points against the USD. Poor US statistics, decline in the Asian stock markets, problems in the EU economy are the factors, which increase demand for the Yen. According to “COT”, large speculators started to show interest in Japanese currency.
We expect that in the near future the Yen will grow against the USD. Short positions on the pair USD/JPY are recommended.
