AUD/JPY: The AUD/JPY pair is now trading between the Tenkan Sen and the Kijun Sen. An upward wave would lead the pair to exceed the Tenkan Sen, confirming the bullish outlook.
US Market View
European markets slightly higher after the record highs of S&P500 in the previous session.
The advance of S&P500 came as shares of big tech stocks rallied and reflected the trend of the past months this year in equity markets, as investors showed interest into software and tech names as a defensive strategy against the pandemic. Many analysts have noted that the market has been discounting the future and not the present.
The COVID-19 virus rates have begun to slow in the United States, but not the same case in some countries within Europe.
US Key Point
- European markets slightly higher after the record highs of S&P500.
- The COVID-19 virus rates have begun to slow in the United States.
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.
