Forex Flash: USD/JPY entering 90-95 consolidation phase - Nomura

Nomura has updated its forecast revision for USD/JPY after new information about the direction of economic policy in Japan, including the “new BoJ”, was provided, the bank says.

From Nomura: "We are now recalibrating the forecast path to take this fully into account: Our new end-June target is 95 (old target: 90) and end-Dec target is 93 (old target: 90). We see only moderate upside from here in the near term. Overall, we judge that USD/JPY is now entering a consolidation phase between 90 and 95."
