EUR/JPY surges on BoJ stimulus hopes
“Market pricing has never been so certain of more easing, so if the BoJ doesn't act, it'll be a really big disappointment.”
- Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities (based on Bloomberg)
The EUR/JPY cross closed just three pips below the 115.00 major level on Tuesday, unable to maintain trade under the second support area. Nevertheless, the Yen lost some ground, amid hopes of the BoJ implementing more stimulus later this week. As a result, the pair touched the 117.00 mark, which is also reinforced by the weekly PP, but erased approximately half of those gains.

Expert Commentary
"The US economy will be definitely impacted by the UK’s decision to leave the EU; however, not directly."
- Brett Ryan, US Economist at Deutsche Bank, on US economy and Greenback

Relative Currency Strength and Volatility: USD
The past period was marked by the USD/JPY components’ notable fall to the negative area. Continuing the past week’s trend, the components started the period below zero and after a brief mid-period recovery fell back with the BoJ interest rate decision. Thus the average correlations between USD/EUR and USD/JPY lost almost 0.3 points compared with the previous readings. Meanwhile, most of the other USD/EUR components strengthened.

Commodity Overview
Oil Finishes Relatively Flat; ‘Brexit’ in Focus
Brent oil futures for delivery in July also jumped by the end of Friday’s trade to settle at $49.17 a barrel on the ICE Futures Exchange, up $1.98, or 4.2%, from Thursday’s close, which saw Brent prices dropping to the level of $46.94 per barrel, the mark not seen since May 12.
