AUD/USD: a channel breakout?
Information is not investment advice
AUD is on the rise. Will it keep pressing upwards? It is possible, as the risk seems to be getting back to Forex today. But will it break the channel’s roof? That’s a question. However, if it does break it, there is still a probability that it will reverse. The thing is, within this channel, AUD/USD has already made several bullish breakthroughs like this, and every time it was getting back down or floating at the upside of the channel.
So the safest approach in the mid-term would be to prepare for a bounce to the lows of 0.7450 or even 0.7420 before another upswing takes place.
This week, there are a few high-probability trade ideas I'd like to recommend to you. Trading these setups, be sure to implement a proper risk management approach.
On Thursday, the 2nd of February, the Bank of England will publish its report concerning interest rates and inflation data for the Eurozone. Professionals and investors anticipate that Andrew Bailey’s lead team of policy makers will likely raise interest rates to 4%; the highest in over a decade, for the tenth time in a row.
The first FOMC meeting comes after a buildup of anticipation from traders and investors alike, as the markets await what posture the Fed will take regarding the interest rates; would there be a hike or a cut in interest rates? Recall that the Federal Open Market Committee had previously ended the year 2022 with a 50bps hike, and an indication from Powell, the committee chairman, that the Fed could consider raising interest rates by 75bps in the course of the year 2023.
