BOJ moves – seen as good for Nikkei; bad for Yen

The latest sentix survey underlines the extent to which the BOJ's surprise stimulus measures have impacted sentiment towards Japanese markets. In terms of the near-term outlook for the Nikkei 225, sentiment readings have spiked sharply higher, albeit they are shy of historic highs. While the initial impact on survey participants' views on the medium-term outlook has been less dramatic, investors are becoming gradually more upbeat from a more strategic perspective, after a latesummer setback in sentiment. On the other side of the sentiment divide, pessimism on the Yen versus the USD has also increased markedly, with near-term sentiment readings reaching historic highs on USD/JPY (while USD optimism is also high-end in EUR/USD). Investors seem to view BOJ moves as good for Nikkei, but bad for Yen.
