JFJ appears to be going against the trend in Japan, which is considerably up over the past 4 months. Many big investors think the up trend is going to continue helped by the USA."A lot of things are lining up for Japanese equities," said Bryan Goh, the Singapore-based chief investment officer of Bordier & Cie, which oversees about $9 billion. "It looks like the economy is stabilizing and the weak currency is certainly helping. There's some momentum behind this bull run."The market's latest tailwind comes from America, where Trump's shock election victory has fueled speculation that increased government spending will lead to higher U.S. interest rates and a stronger dollar. That's good news for Japan because it translates into a weaker yen and an improved earnings outlook for exporters like Toyota Motor Corp. The Japanese currency has dropped 6 percent versus the greenback over the past month, more than any other major Asian currency."This is a very big regime change in U.S. economic policy that could be a game-changer for the yen and the Japanese stock market," said Naoki Murakami, a Tokyo-based market strategist at AllianceBernstein, which oversees about $483 billion worldwide.Trump-induced equity gains over the past two weeks have built on optimism over the BOJ's decision to refrain from pushing interest rates further into negative territory, a policy that had battered bank shares earlier this year. A better-than-estimated 2.2 percent Japanese economic growth figure for the third quarter also added to the bullish sentiment, despite evidence that private consumption remains tepid."Market behavior is looking good and government policy is supportive," said Rob Weatherston, a manager of Japanese equities at Old Mutual Global Investors in Hong Kong.

This turned out to be a good place to hold some funds as the pound crashed.

A double benefit for this fund. Strong yen has increased value when converted. Japan shares are rising on China optimism. Countries trading heavily with China saw impact at end of week e.g. South Korea Won and Kiwi Dollar rose on China numbers.

Read Stockdale's note on JPMorgan Japanese Investment Trust (JFJ), out this morning, by visiting hxxps://www.research-tree.com/companies/uk/trusts%2c_etfs_%26_funds/jpmorgan_japanese_inv__trust … “The sharp rally in the yen is running into fundamental headwinds, though history reminds us that the current rally could run for much longer. We believe that the Japanese economy is going to have a fiscal crisis in a few years, unless inflation rises from current levels, which is unlikely to happen if the yen strengthens further. We therefore expect to see strong monetary and fiscal measures from the authorities in Japan. We believe that the combination of a stable yen and government support still makes the Japanese equity market one of the best medium-term investment opportunities. We continue to ...

300p has been crossed a couple of times since April. Mixed signals in the data today but optimism that the next quarter will be better."Japan's exports increased the most in five months in June, boosted by growth in automobile and electronic parts.The value of overseas shipments rose 9.5 percent from a year earlier, the Ministry of Finance said on Thursday, versus an estimated 10 percent gain. Export volumes were unchanged, signaling limited support for industrial production that has pressured economic growth.Japan's recovery stalled in the three months to June, with weakness that Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda is betting won't persist this quarter. Today's data indicate that foreign trade dragged on growth, said Marcel Thieliant, an economist at Capital Economics."Export volumes have been struggling to rise despite the weak yen," said Atsushi Takeda, an economist at Itochu Corp. "China will continue to pose a risk to Japan's economy. Inventory adjustments in China don't bode well for Japanese exports."

Asian stocks rose Friday, with Japan's benchmark index extending gains to a new 15-year high on prospects for better earnings. Many markets closed for the Lunar New Year holiday.The Nikkei Stock Average rose 0.4% to 18332.30, the highest level since May 2000. In recent months, Japanese stocks have risen steadily as investors have taken a renewed interest in companies that have shifted their focus back to growth and efficiency.

Japan appears to have benefitted from the turmoil in Europe and if course from continued low oil prices. It's funny how economists now suggest that lower oil prices may contribute to deflation around the globe. We will have to wait and see on that but Japanese investors seem more confident for a change.

Over the past three months the performance of JFJ has been well below the Nikkei. Perhaps this is partly down to the premium being lowered on the JFJ fund.I don't have a feel for the state of the Japan economy over the next 12 months. Consumer confidence and spending in the West has been improving but how much are Japanese companies benefiting from this?

The definition of hedging is an investment taken out to limit the risk of another investment. Hedging isn't free. It is a pairs trade - you win on one side and lose on the other. I'm sure JP Morgan understands the tool and had good reason not to utilise it.I've not always been happy with JFJ's performance versus the sector but this year I can't complain.

nod - of course you have done very well with this stellar rise all I am saying is that some funds have discretion to hedge the currency, JFJ does not, hindsight has nothing to do with it. They have also improved the performance utilising maximum permitted gearing if you read the annual report. AO

There are other ways to bet on currency movements than investment funds. JFJ has gone up 45% in the past 12 months while the currency depreciation of the Yen against Sterling has been 25%. Could JFJ have placed bets that would have given the fund a better annual return? Probably. Hindsight is a wonderful investment tool. I'm happy with 45% :)

Trouble is they do not hedge the currency consequently the fund has not enjoyed the full stellar performance of Nikkei with 30% or more depreciation of Yen against sterling, better off in a fund which hedges currency unless you think the yen is going to firm up. AO
