Ichimoku Kinko Hyo

GBP/JPY: The GBP/JPY pair is now trading within the cloud. A decisive movement to the north will fuel the pair to exit the Kumo. The next resistance is seen at the previous peak. On the other hand, a reversal back would push prices below the cloud with further bearish implications.


Market View

The highlight for markets today will be the FOMC meeting. The Federal Reserve is expected to hike the target range by 50bp, a view shared by consensus and market pricing, and signal that another 50bp rate hikes are also on the way this year.

The European Union is expected to announce its sixth round of sanctions against Russia today. According to diplomatic sources, new sanctions will target oil imports, Russian banks, and disinformation campaigns. The EU countries are expected to agree on a ban for Russian oil imports to be phased in by the end of this year. For an EU-wide decision, unanimity is needed, and hence, the deal is expected to offer exemptions for at least Slovakia and Hungary - the two countries that heavily rely on Russian oil.

With May 9 approaching, it’s believed that Russia is in a hurry to achieve some material results in the war in Ukraine to celebrate with the public. Regardless of the disappointing performance of the Russian army, Kremlin officials remain confident that Russia will secure control over the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

In the FX front it will be interesting to see the reaction of the EURUSD after the FOMC meeting as it looks likely to go even lower from here.

Market expectations had been subdued going into the meeting, but some were still hoping for tweaks to the forward guidance to prepare for an eventual exit from the bank's massive stimulus
