EUR,USD,JPY Go Nuts After ECB! Fed, BoJ Expectations More Dovish

FX:USDJPY   U.S. Dollar / Japanese Yen
In today's #marketinsights video recording I analyse EURUSD and USDJPY!

Euro, dragged lower by the reinstation of the QE programme, was able to reverse post-ECB losses on the back of:

- Limited rate cut compared to markets expectations (only 10 basis points)
- Draghi's call on governments for fiscal stimulus (supporting EA economies?)
- Widening yield differential against the dollar (ECB can't move lower, Fed can)
- Expectations that the Fed will cut next week (a weaker dollar)

On the other hand, the yen was also negatively affected by ECB's decision to ease. But with an ultraloose policy in the books for quite a number of years now anyway, easing would be worst in Japan rather than in the US. Hence the bullishness in USDJPY!
