The trajectory of the USD/JPY currency pair is expected to remain largely unchanged, despite key events in Japan this week. This includes the Bank of Japan's (BoJ) meeting and the Ministry of Finance's (MoF) data intervention release, according to Goldman Sachs.

The USD/JPY recently crossed the 150 threshold, a significant milestone that has drawn attention from market participants worldwide. The future course of the Japanese Yen (JPY) will be determined by how these participants scrutinize the developments following this week's events.

Goldman Sachs predicts that the BoJ may uphold its current policy. This comes amidst media speculations about a possible rise in the rate cap beyond 1%. The bank may potentially adjust its core Consumer Price Index (CPI) for fiscal years 2023 and 2024 in response to these speculations.

However, regardless of potential policy changes or an abrupt end to Yield Curve Control (YCC), Goldman Sachs deems major shifts in the USD/JPY trajectory as improbable. The firm's prediction suggests that while these developments may influence the JPY, they are unlikely to result in drastic alterations to its course against the US Dollar (USD).

Market participants will closely monitor these events and their potential impact on the JPY's future trajectory. The outcome of these developments could provide valuable insights into Japan's economic outlook and its implications for global currency markets.
