Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp with some cheerful expectations for USDJPY

  • BOJ may drop inflation target time frame at Sep meeting

  • May flag external factors like oil and slower global growth as impediments to hitting inflation goal, even while saying the correct policy actions have been taken

  • BOJ may change QQE range to ¥70-90tn from current ¥80tn

  • Would be difficult for BOJ to cut rates further into the negative

  • USDJPY could undo all the Abenomic gains to fall to 85.00

Sumitomo's Daisuke Uno gave an interview yesterday. Following my post from yesterday, I came in today to see that the 100 level survived another close shave but once again, it just can't pull itself away.
