Sentiment tailwind still supporting Nikkei and USD/JPY

The latest sentix survey suggests both near-term sentiment and investors’ strategic bias on eurozone equities has modestly weakened. However, in wider global equity context there has been little sign of a change of investor tack on Japan, with sentiment and strategic bias readings both heading higher as the Nikkei 225 index nears 2015 highs around 20,977. Investor sentiment towards the Japanese equity market remains closely tied to views on the Japanese Yen. It is encouraging then that even after the recent revival in sentiment on both Nikkei and USD/JPY, there is still some way to go before survey readings reach levels that would indicate risk of a reversal from an extended optimism condition.
