USD/JPY drops below 104.00 after an earthquake hits Japan
We’ve seen a relatively quiet few hours for currency markets after that brief hiatus in the wake of ECB inaction. The Yen has however delivered some price action with news of a powerful earthquake off the coast of Japan being seen as providing direction here. There are no reports of damage and the risk of a tsunami has been ruled out, but the news saw USDJPY drop from 104.12 to 103.74 – and there’s been no meaningful reversal yet, either.
The pace looks relatively quiet as we run into the weekend break, too. UK public sector borrowing data at 9.30 BST may attract some interest although with Sterling still looking rather beaten down in the wake of the flash crash over two weeks ago, it seems as if we would need a rather dramatic shortfall to layer any additional downside pressure onto the pound, which is still grinding its way higher against many major crosses.
At 3pm BST there’s a Eurozone consumer confidence reading that again could provide some direction, whilst the ongoing EU leaders’ summit will also be under scrutiny for further sabre rattling over Brexit. Any feedback from today’s meeting between Teresa May and Jean Claude Junker could provide further direction, especially for EUR/GBP. The tone so far is described as cordial but cool – probably as much as anyone can hope for, given the circumstances.
