The USD/JPY pair has found stability after experiencing significant movements.
The Japanese yen, in its pairing with the US dollar, is gradually achieving equilibrium, with the current USD/JPY exchange rate standing at 147.97.
Earlier in the week, the yen reached a two-month low against the USD as the US dollar embarked on a rally. This shift occurred as investors reevaluated their expectations for the Federal Reserve's future actions.
Despite the yen's stabilization, the Federal Reserve's steadfast stance and positive economic data from the US continue to provide support to the US dollar.
The market remains divided on the monetary policy outlook for the Bank of Japan. While there are calls to eliminate negative rates within the year, deadlines for such decisions are consistently extended based on released statistics and events. Notably, the Bank of Japan deferred any consideration of tightening monetary policy following the earthquake in the country in January.
