USD/CAD awaits NFP
Information is not investment advice
USD/CAD is consolidating ahead of the news. The release of the US and Canadian data at 15:30 MT time will bring substantial volatility to the pair. Although the longer-term bias of the pair is bullish, it’s not really strong, so it can't be a major argument. Yet, the daily chart suggests that there are more support levels at the bottom of the current consolidation pattern than resistance levels at its top. As a result, we prefer buy trades.
There are clear support and resistance levels on the H4 chart formed by the previous highs and lows, and trading will be done on the basis of these levels.
As soon as the pair rises above 1.3310, we can anticipate a further upward movement towards 1.3350. The next important level to break is 1.3375.
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.
