CAD/JPY is under attack
Information is not investment advice
CAD/JPY failed to close last week around the high of 85.20 and, as a result, remained capped by the 50-week MA in the 84.53 area.
On Monday, the pair closed away from the daily lows but still below the 100-day MA at 84.00 and February support line. The weekly pivot point is located at 84.33, so bears will prevail as long as the pair’s trading below this level. Given all mentioned above, we think that there’s a sense to bet on the decline of the Canadian dollar versus the Japanese yen. The proposed entry level is near the 50-period MA on H4 (84.13)
Bear in mind that volatility will rise on Wednesday, as Canada releases the trade balance figures and the Bank of Canada holds its meeting.
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.
