Credit Suisse discusses USD/JPY outlook and outlines the following 2 reasons holding off long positions:

"1. Long USDJPY and also cross -JPY still seems to be a favourite structural position, both anecdotally and also looking at indicators like IMM speculative positioning. 2. Despite the sharp drop in US – Japan yield differentials and also US real yields this month, USDJPY has mostly held above the 110 level, encouraged by generally low FX / asset price volatility, still -tight US credit spreads and new record highs for US equities," CS notes. 

"In short, trade location has simply not been attractive to go long given macro developments and positioning risks," CS adds.

ANZ Research discusses NZD/USD outlook and likes buying dips over the coming weeks.

"The NZD has slightly underperformed expectations, trading sideways through July. Even against currencies with much more dovish central banks, the NZD has struggled for traction. This underscores the importance of the global cycle for the high beta currencies, with waning enthusiasm for the reflation trade offsetting the positive domestic backdrop,' ANZ notes. 

"We think any dips in the currency will be well bought, however, with the RBNZ’s aggressive stance providing a floor for any weakness," ANZ adds.

GBP/USD was little changed on Friday but on course to end the week higher and close out July near its peak for the month, and possibly end the session above the 10-week moving average at 1.3911, which would enhance cable's bullish outlook.

U.S.
PCE data nL1N2P52DB held little sway over forex markets, though slightly below-consensus core PCE prices appeared to support the Fed's cautious approach to discussing asset purchase tapering at this week's meeting.

That reluctance has helped GBP/USD recover from its recent slide to 1.3573.

With several BoE members shifting to more hawkish bias, and short-sterling futures indicating a earlier BoE rate hike than the Fed 0#FSS:0#ED:, GBP bulls are being drawn to the Aug.
2 cloud twist just above today's 1.3984 high.

A close above the 10-WMA at 1.3911 would give bullish momentum to sterling ahead of the Aug.
5 BoE meeting, and a hawkish tone there could send it through resistance at June 23's 1.4001 high, putting it on a path toward June 1's 1.4250 high.

Bank of America Global Research discusses USD/JPY outlook and awaits a dip buying opportunity over the coming weeks.

"We discuss recent political developments and what could be at stake in the upcoming elections in the fall. With political uncertainty and August seasonality, JPY’s corrective strength could continue through the summer but US factors and JPY’s structural flow remain supportive for USD/JPY over the medium term," BofA notes. 

"A dip in USD/JPY could provide a buying opportunity, though patience may be needed," BofA adds.

MUFG Research discusses USD/JPY outlook and sees a limited scope for the pair to trend higher in the near-term.

"The swing in July was certainly extreme and unlikely to be replicated but it does highlight one of the fundamental factors limiting the scope for the yen to depreciate on any kind of a sustained basis at levels over 110.00. At the lower bound with investors holding little confidence in the BoJ’s ability to lift inflation, real yields are likely to remain relatively attractive," MUFG notes. 

"Add to this a structurally stable current account surplus over 3% of GDP and a currency that on many metrics is about 10% undervalued, the prospect of USD/JPY trending higher from here looks limited. Yes, a rebound in US nominal yields can play a role in lifting USD/JPY as correlations show but the correlations weaken at higher levels over 110.00 and over a medium term timeframe, valuation, external positions and real yields suggest downside risks," MUFG adds.

Credit Agricole CIB Research discusses the latest reading from its Risk Index.

"At -0.56 (vs -0.58 last week) our Risk Index remains broadly unchanged in risk-seeking territory. This is mostly due to lower equity market volatility and tightening credit spreads. FX volatility, in contrast, rose," CACIB notes.

"In addition, defensive stock market sectors such as utilities have been outperforming. While this could be reflective of increased caution among investors, it may also mean that there is less scope for material corrective downside from current levels," CACIB adds.
