GBP/CAD: technical levels
Information is not investment advice
Last week, the advance of GBP/CAD was contained by the 100-week MA at 1.71. On the D1, the pair closed yesterday below the 200-day MA at 1.6883. The pair has now room for a correction down to 1.6690 (September high) and 1.6640 (38.2% Fibo retracement of the August-October advance). The decline will be triggered if the price breaks below the 50-period MA on the H4 in the 1.6840 area. The pound’s attempts to recover from the current levels will meet resistance at 1.6935 (MAs on the H1) and 1.7000.
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.
