USDJPY has traded firmer so far

16 November, 2017

European Outlook:  Stock markets bounced back during the Asian session, and the Nikkei gained nearly 1.5% as technology and telecom stocks led the way and a weaker Yen added support. Profit taking seems to have run its course and traders are leaving concerns about the progress of U.S. tax reforms and China’s slowdown and credit burden behind and refocus on positive corporate earnings. U.K. and U.S. futures are also higher, suggesting that global markets are set to recover some of the losses from earlier in the week. Yields still dropped in Asia overnight and Bund futures climbed higher in after hour trade, with Eurozone peripherals in particular likely to benefit from the return in risk appetite. The EUR is down from recent highs, but still hovering around the 1.18 mark against the Dollar. The local calendar has U.K. retail sales data and the final reading of Eurozone HICP inflation for October.

FX Action: USDJPY has traded firmer so far today, rising concomitantly with stock markets in Asia. U.S. equity index futures are also up after the USA500 posted its biggest daily loss yesterday in two months. The yen has been correlating inversely with global stock markets this week, as it is apt to do during phases of pronounced swings in investor risk appetite. The weakness in the currency today has in turn injected extra buoyancy into Japanese stock markets, with the Topix index outperforming most of its regional peers with a gain of just over 1%. News that two U.S. senators (Ron Johnson and Susan Collins) have publicly criticised the tax reform bill may limit the rebound potential of stock markets, at least on Wall Street.
