New high incoming for GBPJPY?

“Kuroda stressed their commitment towards maintaining current stimulus.”

We witness yet another day of Japanese Yen’s weakness, with pairing of GBP/JPY hitting its highest level in 2 months. Yen was offered heavily in the market due to increasing divergence in between Federal Reserve and Bank of Japan policy guidance. Yesterday, BoJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda emphasized that “it is not the time” to execute an exit strategy for current ultra-loose monetary setting. Likewise, Kuroda also added that the strategy will only be viable upon hitting inflation target of 2%.

ZFX Analyst’s Comment

The pair has further upside potential as both central banks diverge further from one another. With inflation pressure hovering at high level, portraying certain kind of “stickiness”, Fed may opt for more tightening if necessary.
