Steen Jakobsen
The Bank of Japan has abandoned quantitative easing and the European Central Bank may taper its bond-buying programme, so what is the role of central banks in 2017, asks Saxo Bank’s chief economist Steen Jakobsen.

Vanita, I am well thank you. I hope you are too...I saw you are following me on Twitter as well!

Looking at the technical disposition of both GBPJPY and USDJPY I see the following pattern:

On all measures I would prefer being short GBP against JPY.

For the USD JPY I would be long USD up until the Daily or Weekly perspective...then I swing behind the JPY.

Partly the USD is finding support after dipping yesterday on the dovish comments from Federal Reserve policymaker Lael Brainard. She is seen as being close to Yellen and so I think when the Fed does not move quickly the USD will lose support.

Therefore I would keep with Yen over Sterling and start to fade out of the Dollar long by Monday next week.

I think GBPJPY will come back to your cost. USDJPY has scope to 102.50...then I fear USD will fade.
