USD/JPY as covered in previous posts lifted from 128.00’s around March 2022 and historically from a terrible location based on my model review. USD/JPY's rise from 128.00's coincided to the Fed's first raise.
As USD/JPY was the worst possible price for liftoff, the continued rise placed USD/JPY in a precarious situation as ranges expanded to 2500 + pips but to trade overbought to most if not all G28 currency pairs. USD/JPY has been trading completely off kilter to currency markets since 128.00's.
The BOJ will not Intervention anytime soon which means USD/JPY's price remains inside the market to trade current averages.
USD/JPY's only big news is from the August 2 Uchida speech as stated If the BOJ ever raised rates then only by 10 points. This drops the -0.1 rate from 0.9 to 0.8. The BOJ for the forseeable future remains negative to interest rates.
Japan’s Inflation rate is the determination however the BOJ is not in any hurry nor in discussion to raise rates anytime soon.
USD/JPY from 128.00’s and now 151.00’s traded 2300 pips or 1 full currency cycle of 2500 pips.
