07:50 EDTN.Y. FX Outlook
N.Y. FX Outlook: The shock BoJ move to join the negative rate club saw the dollar soar against the yen, bond yields tank, and global equities forge higher. USD-JPY rallied nearly 300 points from bottom to top, and has held the bulk of those gains through the London morning session. Focus now shifts to the U.S. calendar, which will feature the advance Q4 GDP report, where analysts expect a 1.0% gain (revised down from 1.3% after yesterday's disastrous durable goods report), versus the previous 2.0% result. Q4 ECI will be important too, given the worries over the lack of price pressures. Analysts're forecasting a 0.7% increase, and 2.0% y/y from the prior 0.6% and 2.1% y/y gains. Also, the advance trade in goods report is expected to reveal a $59.6 B deficit from -$60.5 B, on lower exports and imports. The final January U. of Michigan consumer sentiment report should reveal a slight increase to 93.5 from 93.3. Finally, the January Chicago PMI is set to bounce to 48.5 from 42.9.

07:30 EDTFX Update: The yen plummeted
FX Update: The yen plummeted after the BoJ unexpectedly announced that it will impose a -0.1% interest rate on excess reserves, effective from Feb-16. This was a shock as BoJ governor Kuroda said recently that did not intend to cut rates on excess reserves, and market analysts had been expecting that any easing move would come in the form of an expansion in the QQE program. The vote was narrow -- 5 versus 4 -- and a three-tier system in applying the negative rate will dilute its impact, but the BoJ stated that it is putting its 2% inflation target on ice and that it will cut the interest rate "further into negative territory if judged as necessary." USD-JPY surged 2.4% in making a peak at 121.43, the highest level since Dec-21. There were various sub-themes to the dominant yen story. The commodity currencies had rallied strongly during the Asian session, but reversed these gains during the European AM. AUD-USD clocked a three-week peak at 0.7140, subsequently reverting to net lower levels on the day below 0.7070. The move correlated with a drift lower in oil prices. Another sub-plot was dollar strength, which outeperformed during the European AM. EUR-USD was moderately lower in the low 1.09s, as of the early European PM session. Cable was also softer. EUR-CHF, meanwhile, logged a fresh one-year peak at 1.1139, making today the sixth consecutive higher high the cross has seen.

05:50 EDTOil holds above USD 33, but is off earlier highs
Oil holds above USD 33, but is off earlier highs, as Russia indicated that there is currently no meeting with OPEC scheduled, which dampened speculation on a cooperation on oil output. Russian Energy Minister Novak said that while Venezuela has proposed a meeting next month, nothing is scheduled. This followed comments from four OPEC delegates yesterday, who also said that no meeting has been arranged so far. Futures remain up on the day, however and firmly above recent lows, with the March Nymex future currently at USD 33.43 and the April contract at USD 34.95.
