Japan exchange rate outlook Q2 2015

Japan exchange rate outlook Q2 2015

Report summary

We expect sustained weakness in the yen over the short term as Japan's quantitative easing programme takes effect. Although lower oil prices will help to lower Japan's overall import bill, Japan's exports have not improved significantly despite the weak yen. Further easing measures also pose a downside risk to the currency.
