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.

To say these markets are non-trending at the moment is a large understatement. We have daily RSI running flat (at 50) in some pairs, inside soldiers in others, corrective channels. Need I go on?

This is producing a lot of false signals as we look for breakouts. There is literally nothing to see in FX majors at the moment so I am going to hunt crosses for potential set ups.

Reports to follow (if I find one). Have a great Friday

Yen traders paralyzed as central banks become guessing game
Just when the world is most craving clarity on the future of Japan’s monetary policy, currency markets show it has become particularly hard to predict. With so little consensus on what Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda will come up with for the Sept. 21 policy decision, Eaton Vance Corp. and a unit of Bank of New York Mellon Corp. are abstaining from any positions in the yen, while JPMorgan Chase & Co. says some investors have closed out bets on declines in the dollar versus the yen. Such is the consternation that the options premium on contracts to buy the currency in a month’s time disappeared for the first time since November, before reversing course this week.
