USD/JPY looks vulnerable
Information is not investment advice
USD/JPY formed a candlestick on the W1 that strongly resembles a “shooting star”. This happened right at the resistance of the 50% Fibonacci retracement of the April-August decline at 108.40. The weak risk appetite may contribute to the strength of the JPY and the weakness of USD/JPY. On the D1, the pair slipped below the 100-day MA (107.90) on Friday. The next bearish target below the last week’s low of 107.45 lies at 107.10 (50-day MA) and then at 106.70.
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.
