J.P. Morgan hikes dollar-yen target on BoJ easingExternal Link

NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Researchers at J.P. Morgan expect an increasingly weak Japanese yen following the Bank of Japan's surprise move to accelerate easing measures on Friday. The yen weakened 2.5% against the dollar after the BoJ announcement. The dollar traded at ¥112.06, up from ¥109.22 on Thursday. The J.P. Morgan researchers, led by Tohru Sasaki, suggested in a research note that the currency pairing could hit ¥115 by year end, and ¥120 in the third quarter of 2015. Their previous forecast was for a year-end target of ¥109, and a third-quarter target of ¥110. Nonetheless, they suggested that if the yen continues to depreciate more rapidly, industrial groups and officials could show concern, restraining the yen's fall.

Fed's Lacker doesn't see 'gigantic' risks from raising rates too earlyExternal Link

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) -- Richmond Fed President Jeffrey Lacker said Friday that recent easing moves by global central banks -- from the Bank of Japan, the Swedish Riksbank, and the European Central Bank -- doesn't raise concerns about the risks of lifting interest rates too early in the United States. "I don't see it that way," Lacker said in an interview on Bloomberg Radio. "I don't see the risk of raising rates too early as gigantic. I think we can take a balanced approach." Lacker, who becomes a voting Federal Open Market Committee member next year, said he was unsure whether the Bank of Japan action announced Friday will have a large effect.
