USD/JPY Price Actuators
Dimming the Fed’s rate increases worries in the world market has attracted aggressive selling in the US dollar Index (DXY). The DXY has recorded a new monthly low of 101.43, and traders are expecting to see more weakness. Traders’ expectation of DXY weakness is based on the poor performance of the American GDP (Gross Domestic Product). The US Bureau of Economics published the yearly GDP figures of -1.5%, below the calculated -1.3% and the previous -1.4%. The poor performance of the US dollar index has played its part in influencing the USD/JPY price.
On the JPY side, the Statistics Bureau of Japan published the CPI ( Consumer Price Index) of 2.4%. The figure released by the body is below the predicted 2.7% and previous 2.5%. The Japanese government is concerned about the pegged price forces. Reacting to this concern, the BoJ’s (Bank of Japan) Governor has remarked that price increases will attract salary increases. This salary increase is a move to contain inflation.
