USDJPY – Japanese yen breaches 112, U.S consumer inflation misses forecast

Written by By OctaFx Analyst Team | 2018-10-11 14:00:39 GMT

U.S. consumer inflation numbers were soft in September, as CPI and Core CPI both posted small gains of 0.1%, shy of the estimate of 0.2%. On a year-to-year basis, CPI increased 2.3% in September, down from 2.7% in August. Still, with inflation above the Fed’s 2% inflation target, these readings will not affect the Fed’s plans to raise interest rates in December, which would mark the fourth rate increase this year. The likelihood of a rate hike remains high, with the CME pegging the odds at 76%. On the employment front, unemployment claims climbed to 214 thousand, higher than the estimate of 207 thousand.

As bonds yields continuing to rise, investors have reacted negatively and stock markets continue to spin lower. Risk appetite is considerably lower this week, and nervous investors have snapped up the Japanese yen, a reliable safe haven in times of crisis. The yen has posted five straight winning sessions and has gained 1.9% since Friday. Earlier this week, the IMF released a report in which it lowered its global growth forecasts. The IMF revised its growth forecast downwards to 3.7% for 2018 and 2019, down from 3.9% in April. The IMF took note of the trade war between the U.S and its major trading partners, adding that the downward revisions were most notable in emerging countries such as Turkey and Brazil. However, Japan received a better report card from the IMF, which revised upwards its growth forecast for Japan to 1.1%, compared to 1.0% in April.
