USDJPY at lowest level since Oct 2014

  • European markets opened with a risk-off tone, following the overnight pullback in both US and Asia and mixed economic data. European credit has traded wider from the open, and the SX5E is currently down c.2% from yesterday’s close. This morning’s key releases were Euro Area flash HICP, which surprised to the downside at -0.2% y/y, and the first estimate of Euro Area Q1 real GDP, which was reported at 0.6% q/q, above consensus forecasts of 0.4% q/q.
  • Asian equities continue to trade lower and currencies are mixed as weaker-than-expected economic data renews global growth concerns. Taiwan equities fell more than 1% today as Q1 GDP contracted by more than market expectations. In currencies, the DXY is down 1.8% this week, hitting its lowest level since August 2015, after the first release of US Q1 GDP lowered the implied probability of a Fed rate increase in June to 12% (Bloomberg). In contrast, the JPY continues to appreciate, with a 3.4% surge yesterday. Post yesterday’s BoJ MPM, we see a risk that further easing could be frontloaded to the 15-16 June MPM. China strengthened the USDCNY fixing to 6.4589 from 6.4954 yesterday.

The C-suite's innovation dilemma

The financial services c-suite needs to embrace technology innovation, and learn its language if they want to succeed, according to Harvard Business School professor and New York Times’ bestselling author Clayton Christensen.

Professor Christensen explains why the state of disruption in financial services could force them to adapt in this interview with Arian Lewis, Barclays' Head of Open Innovation.
