What Is NZD/JPY Trading?

NZD/JPY trading refers to the buying and selling of the NZD/JPY currency pair in the foreign exchange market. The pair represents the value of one New Zealand Dollar (commonly called a “kiwi”) in terms of Japanese yen. For example, if the current exchange rate is 85.00, it means 1 New Zealand Dollar is equivalent to 85.00 Japanese Yen.

The New Zealand dollar is legal tender in New Zealand, a country with an export-oriented economy with key industries such as agriculture, horticulture, dairy, and tourism. As a result, commodity prices and global economic trends can also impact the performance of the kiwi in forex.

The Japanese yen is legal tender in Japan, an economy renowned for its technological innovations and advancements. Japan has a well-developed industrial base, including sectors like automotive, electronics, machinery, precision instruments, and chemicals. The stance of the country’s economy affects the value of the yen.

NZD/JPY Historical Performance

As the Japanese yen is a safe-haven asset, and the New Zealand dollar is a risk-sensitive currency due to its links to commodity prices, the pair suffers significant price fluctuations. It forms long-term up and downtrends, fluctuating from slightly above 40 to slightly above 92.

The global financial crisis in 2008 had a notable impact on the NZD/JPY pair. Investors sought safe-haven assets, and the Japanese yen, being considered a relatively safe currency, appreciated against the New Zealand Dollar during this period.

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020 led to heightened market volatility and uncertainty; as a result, the pair declined. However, it started forming an uptrend in the second half of 2020. The central banks of both New Zealand and Japan implemented various measures to stabilise their economies, influencing the exchange rate of the pair.

Major Factors That Affect the NZD/JPY Pair

Economic indicators, including GDP growth, employment figures, inflation rates, and trade balances from both New Zealand and Japan, influence the NZD/JPY pair. New Zealand is a major exporter of commodities, particularly dairy products and agricultural produce. Fluctuations in commodity prices can significantly impact the domestic currency.

Interest rate decisions by the Reserve Bank of New Zealand (RBNZ) and the Bank of Japan (BoJ) have a minor impact on the pair as the Bank of Japan maintains an ultra-loose monetary policy. However, other central bank measures to support the economy may affect the NZD/JPY rate.

The New Zealand dollar and the Japanese yen are considered risk-sensitive currencies as the former is a volatile currency, while the latter is a safe-haven asset. Changes in risk appetite and market sentiment can influence the NZD/JPY pair.
