On the daily chart of USD/JPY, the pair has been trading near the trendline that limits the further rise. The pair needs to close above 108.045. After that, we can anticipate a further rise to 108.555 (previous consolidation zone). The break of the downtrend will be confirmed if only the pair sticks above 108.80. The next resistance is 109.26. Before that, risks of the fall exist.
If the pair is not able to break above the trendline, the fall to 107.15 is anticipated.
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.
