Thinking of trading AUD/JPY?

    1. Because the regions have overlapping time zones, any speculation that the interest rate in either country will be changed will lead to a disproportionate effect on both currencies. This is a perfect opportunity for fundamental traders to make the most of one country's interest rate news affecting the price of the counterparty currency minutes after it happens. 2. The difference in Interest rates tends to be the greatest among any other currency pair. In January 2019 Australia's interest rate was 3. 25%, whereas Japan had 0.10%. Hence, it can be said that the currency has a strong long (upward) bias.

Even though both currencies individually are major currencies in the Forex market, this particular pair is not considered a major one, also, unlike the major FX pairs, AUD/JPY does not have a nickname. The Aussie dollar was debuted on the world market in 1966, whereas the Japanese yen introduced in 1971 and was pegged to the USD until 1973 . Due to the strong relationship that the JPY has with the US Dollar, any significant change in the American economy, could affect upon the AUD/JPY. The best way of profiting from this pair would be from either commodity price changes (due to the fact that Japan relies on Australia's heavy commodities) and the trade benefits of these two currencies as a carry trade. As of 2019, the pair is trading at 75.70, which is near its lowest price of 58.68 back in May 1995 (its highest price ever traded being 276.69).It is a popular currency with Forex traders as there are fairly high interest rates in Australia, and their foreign exchange market is relatively free from government intervention, whereas Japan tends to have low interest rates. It is also worth mentioning that AUD/JPY has an almost perfect positive correlation with the SGD/JPY of 98.3%, and 97.7% negative correlation with the EUR/AUD.

1. Traders should keep an eye out to the particularly high volatility of the AUD. While the majority of developed economies tend to trade in tandem due to the trade links between them, Australian economy is somewhat different. Most of the manufacturing exports go to Asia and this means that the health of the country's economy is strongly related to commodity prices. That creates a lot of volatility in the currency that will affect the pair, and it should be traded carefully. 2. Something particularly special about trading any pair tied to the JPY is the fragility of their currency price to natural disasters, oil prices and manufacturing demand.
