However, Nanao Shimakage, Research Assistant at The Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, Ltd explained the recent market uncertainty has clarified firm limited downside for USD/JPY. “Abenomics moved into the implementation phase this autumn, and the fiscal flow of funds will support JGB and JPY stability. We maintain our view of USD/JPY remaining in a narrow range, at JPY99 in one month and JPY102 in three months”. USD/JPY was thrown a lifeline when the GDP was released for Q3, beating expectations and painting a better picture for the US economy. Meanwhile, markets will now turn their attention to the NFP’s tomorrow, and a sub 100k NFP print will be blamed on the government shutdown, and 150k+ should see 10yr USTs continue on their path lower.
