USD/RUB and USD/MXN: bouncing downwards
Information is not investment advice
Do you notice the similarity between these two charts? As both currencies are equally weak against the USD, the Russian ruble and the Mexican peso are following almost identical patterns.
For both, we have local resistance that sent the price downwards. For USD/RUB – it’s at 75.60; for USD/MXN – 20.20. Now, both are likely to go downwards aiming at local support levels: with the ruble, it’s 73.00, with the peso – 19.55. At least, meeting the Moving Averages that all are converging down below seems the most probable short-term scenario for USD/RUB and USD/MXN.
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.
