GBP/CAD is losing ground
Information is not investment advice
GBP/CAD tried to recover in August, but its progress wasn’t very impressive. A “Dark Cloud Cover” pattern was formed on the W1. The declining 50-day MA is providing resistance at 1.6255. The decline below the last week’s lows in the 1.6135 area opens the way down towards 1.6060 (61.8% Fibo of the August advance) and 1.5980 (78.6% Fibo). Notice that there will be a lot of political challenges for the GBP in the upcoming days. The rise back above 1.6255 is needed to allow a retest of 1.6355 (August highs).
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.
