EUR/NZD: the short-term downtrend
Information is not investment advice
EUR/NZD declined last week. Actually, the pair has been descending since the middle of October when it recoiled down from the resistance line connecting 2015 and 2018 highs in the 1.7660 area. Currently, the pair’s trading around the 100-day MA in the 1.7240 zone. The price has been consolidating around it during the past week, the consolidation has got the shape of a triangle. On the H4, the moving averages are in the negative order providing substantial resistance around 1.7335 and 1.7385. The decline below the Wednesday’s low at 1.7210 will let the short-term downtrend continue at least until 1.7145 (Nov. 13 low). The next level to watch on the downside will be at 1.7030 (200-day MA).
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.
