The CZK/JPY is not very popular currency pair on the Forex market. The CZK/JPY does not include the U.S. dollar and that is why called a cross currency pair. However, the U.S. currency has a significant influence on it. This can be seen, if you combine two price charts: USD/JPY and USD/CZK. Thus, you will get an approximate CZK/JPY chart.
Since the U.S. dollar heavily influences both currencies, it is necessary to take into account the major U.S. economic indicators for the correct projection of this financial instrument’s price movement. You should pay attention to the U.S. discount rate, GDP data, unemployment rate, new jobs figures, etc. It is worth noting that the currencies comprising the pair can respond differently to changes in the U.S. economy; therefore, the CZK/JPY can be considered as a specific indicator of these currencies.
