In the short term

While the banks have predicted for the AUD to JPY exchange rate to rise slightly over the long term, there are plenty of influences on the Australian dollar and the Japanese Yen that can impact both currencies in the short term. These include:

  • Central bank policies to stimulate the economy is more effective in Japan than Australia, supporting the Yen
  • Japan or Australia is at risk of potential interest rate hikes as inflationary pressures continue to rise, leading to higher exchange rates
  • China’s demand for Australian commodities grows relatively more than Japanese manufacturing imports supporting the AUD
