While the American stock market is disoriented, oil price slumps and the shale companies are brainstorming their way to stay in the business, the euro gets stronger against the US dollar. EUR/USD trades at 1.1363 - the range of one-year highs. They were broken already on Monday, so now the currency goes in a downward correction. The Awesome Oscillator indicates the high ground reached by the currency pair, and before it goes further up it would need to take some rest to gather momentum. In the context of the latest global events, clouds are gathering above the USD. Hence, fundamentally, until good news come to the American side, the dollar is very likely to lose ground to the euro. In the meantime, the ECB interest rate press conference is a major thing to watch this week, so eyes open.
Resistance 1: 1.1505, Resistance 2: 1.1576
Support 1: 1.1340, Support 2: 1.1280
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.
