GBPJPY Forecast and BoJ’s Policy Adjustments

Bloomberg–The Japanese yen has seen a depreciation, moving beyond 151 per dollar. This places it near its lowest point in a year and could weaken further, reaching lows not seen since 1990. This is largely due to the Bank of Japan’s (BOJ) decision to relax its control over long-term rates, which many believe falls short of addressing the interest rate disparities that have been putting pressure on the currency for years.

The BOJ has held its policy rate steady at -0.1% and kept the 10-year JGB yield target at approximately 0% while making minor tweaks to its yield curve control policy. The central bank has redefined 1% as a flexible “upper bound” rather than a strict limit. It has withdrawn its commitment to uphold this level by offering to purchase an unlimited quantity of bonds.

Looking ahead, the BOJ has upgraded its inflation forecast for fiscal years 2023, 2024, and 2025. It predicts that core CPI inflation will gradually approach the 2% price stability target. However, they underscored that a positive feedback loop of increasing prices and wages should drive this rise.

The market sentiment for GBPJPY remains bullish in the long term. However, if the price drops below the 50% Fibonacci retracement level, it would invalidate the bullish scenario. In such a case, the recent bullish breakout observed in the GBPJPY daily chart would be considered a false breakout, and we could expect the price to continue trading within the daily bearish channel.
