EUR/JPY looks grim
Information is not investment advice
The current risk aversion is encouraging the safe-haven demand for the JPY, while the weakness of the euro area’s economy is hurting the EUR. As a result, EUR/JPY will likely remain under pressure. Last week’s attempt of the pair to recover failed. Now there are all reasons to expect the continuation of the slide to lower levels, especially as long as the euro remains below the weekly pivot point at 117.18. The evident target is the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level of the 2016-2018 advance at 115.40.
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.
