【SOCIETE GENERALE:The dollar is still the most popular currency】

August 24 - Although currency markets are still in the summer doldrums, the US dollar is still the top in the market, said Kit Juckes, chief global FX strategist at Societe Generale. In August, dollars all the way higher, and is expected to continue to rise, until the BOJ takes action (They will not meet again until September 22nd). Either European data (unlikely) gets better or US data be weak or Fed officials adopting a more cautious tone at Jackson Hole.



The BOJ bond buying speed record The necessity of increasing yield curve control policy

The Bank of Japan has bought government bonds at a record pace this year, which may be one factor prompting the bank to allow yields to fluctuate in a wider range in the near term, reducing pressure on it to keep long-term rates under control. The BOJ still hasn't significantly reduced its bond purchases after widening the yield curve control band in December and last month. The step-up in purchases after each change also raises the question of whether the BOJ is moving too slowly to adjust policy and would have to be aggressive to stop investors from pushing yields too high. Naomi Muguruma, chief fixed-income strategist at MUFJ Morgan Stanley Securities, said that if the BOJ reduced its bond purchases, market participants would take it as a signal that it was close to exiting its easing policy, which will push yields higher and forcing it to buy more.
