EUR/JPY: The pair is trading in a bullish sentiment above the cloud. The currency pair has just surpassed the Kijun-sen and the Tenkan-sen, confirming a bullish momentum.

EU Market View
Asian equity markets traded mostly positive as the region took its cue from the rebound in the US.
The US Vice Presidential debate saw Harris and Pence exchange blows to discredit the records of both Presidential candidates. FOMC minutes provided little in the way of fresh information with no greater clarity on how far the Fed would permit inflation to overshoot its target.
Looking ahead, highlights from the macroeconomic calendar include German trade balance, ECB minutes, US weekly jobs data, ECB's Schnabel, de Guindos, Mersch, Fed's Barkin, BoC's Macklem speeches.
EU Key Point
- Nikkei 225 climbs 0.96% to close at its highest level since February
- Japan's Nishimura supports that current economic sentiment is becoming very good
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.
