EUR/JPY Analysis Forecast, May 25, 2015 – Forecast

Analysis and Recommendations (EUR/JPY Forecast for 25 May 2015 ):

The EUR/JPY is trading at 134.57 up by 8 points as traders wait on the BoJ conference in a few after. The euro gained a few points this morning as the tensions over Greece eased a bit.  The euro was steady at $1.1110 after bouncing 0.2 percent overnight for its first gain in four days. It had hit a three-week low of $1.1062 earlier this week amid Greek debt concerns.

The dollar weakened against rivals for the first time in four sessions on Thursday after softer-than-expected U.S. data dented investors’ outlook for a recovery in the economy over the second quarter.

The euro was also bolstered against the dollar on Thursday by nascent signs of a recovery in euro zone activity, and a rise in German Bund yields which narrowed the spread over U.S. Treasuries. The composite flash PMI for the euro zone fell to 53.4 from 53.9, missing the 53.8 forecast in a Reuters poll. Despite the drop, data compiler Markit said, the euro zone economy is on track to grow 0.4 percent in the current quarter.

“The narrowing of yield spreads over U.S. Treasuries is having an impact on euro to dollar,” said Jeremy Stretch, head of currency strategy at CIBC World Markets.

Part of the reason that euro gains will be limited is a very accommodative monetary policy stance by the European Central Bank. Earlier this week, board member Benoit Coeure said the central bank would accelerate the pace of money printing to buy government bonds over the next two months.
