Technical analysis

Technical analysis (TA) is a method of predicting the future performance of an asset’s price (in our case, the price of a currency pair) on the basis of its historical performance.

In other words, technical analysts study financial charts in order to determine what will happen with the price next.

In contrast to fundamental analysis which is regarding the “value” of the asset, technical analysis is only interested in price, volume and other market information. Some traders use either technical or fundamental analysis, while others combine these two methods to make trading decisions..

5 important event to follow this week!

1. Canadian Trade Balance data (January 8, 15:30 MT time (13:30 GMT)). Trade balance data is important for the Canadian economy and the CAD. That’s why the release may strongly affect the direction of the Canadian dollar.

2. BOC Rate Statement – (January 9, 17:00 MT time (15:00 GMT)). The Bank of Canada is one of the most unpredictable central banks in its decisions. But as usual, the hawkish mood of the BOC will boost the CAD. In the case of the cautious tone, the loonie will decline.

3. BOE Governor Carney Speaks (January 9, 17:30 MT time (15:0 GMT)). Comments by members of central banks are always highly important, especially when they are from heads of the CBs. The UK has been coming to the end of the Brexit saga or not? Encouraging speech of Mr. Carney will support the GBP while dovish mood will pull the GBP down.

4. FOMC Meeting Minutes (January 9, 21:00 MT time (19:00 GMT)). The Fed raised the interest rate in December 2018, however, it didn’t boost the market sentiment. Traders worry about the slowdown in the rate hikes’ pace. If the release is more positive than anticipated, the USD will rise.

5. US CPI figures (January 11, 15:30 MT time (13:30 GMT)). CPI is one of the crucial economic data that is followed by traders all around the world. CPI and Core CPI figures will affect the direction of the US dollar. Everything is simple: if the actual data outperform the forecasts, the USD will rise. Vice versa, the US dollar will depreciate.

Hot topics:

The Parliament vote for the final Brexit deal was postponed from January 11 to January 15. Further postpones? MAY BE.

Theresa May is going to chair a new cabinet committee (the EU exit and trade (preparedness) committee) that has been set up to take charge of the Brexit planning. Among other issues, it will cover planning for a no-deal Brexit.

Trade on the comments by the BOC


The Bank of Canada (BOC) will present its monetary policy report and make the rate statement on January 9 at 17:00 MT time.

The market expectations of the rate hike are low, however, the comments by the bank of Canada governor Stephen Poloz may support the Canadian dollar. Last comments by the BOC governor Mr. Poloz were not very certain due to the fall in the oil prices and the trade war between the US and China. As the output cut by the OPEC+ has started since the beginning of the year, the central bank of Canada may sound more confident this time.

• If the BOC is hawkish, the CAD will rise;

• If the BOC is dovish, the CAD will fall.

Japan’s wages calculation in GDP will be revised


On Friday, Japan's cabinet told it’s on the verge of amending the calculation of employees’ compensation in the country’s GDP. Moreover, the Japanese government will most likely have its draft budget revised having understated wages data for over a decade because of faulty polling techniques.

The revisions aren’t anticipated to change the tempo of economic surge in Japan. Simultaneously, that’s an embarrassment for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe due to the fact that his cabinet has enacted a number of policies to avert the risk of deflation by simply stimulating wages to go up.

In fact, inaccurate wage data makes it difficult to evaluate whether Abe's policies are really working and could raise questions regarding the credibility of other data, thus leaving Japanese policy makers blind-sided in their attempts to speed up sustainable economic surge.

As some financial analysts pointed out, escaping deflation turns out to be Abe's number one economic objective, and if you’re unable to trust the data you are unable to make rational policy decisions. Last year the Japanese cabinet altered the sampling method for the purpose of improving wages data, and now they’re telling they had the data understated, which is incredible.

On Friday, the Cabinet Office that compiles GDP told that it’s going to uncover revisions for wages in 2016-2017 at the end of January. In February, the Cabinet Office is going to disclose revisions to wages data from 2015 and also earlier.

On Friday, the country’s Finance Minister Taro Aso told that the cabinet won’t probably have its budget draft revised for the next fiscal year to pay for a shortfall of employment insurance benefits provoked by mistakes in Japan’s wage data.

Such a rare move as this probable budget revision would follow the revelation that the labor ministry wrongly calculated employees’ average wages for years.

Trade the British pound on the inflation data


The level of British consumer price index (CPI) will be released on January 16 at 11:30 MT time.

This indicator accounts for a majority of overall inflation. The data is very important, as the bank of England uses it to measure the inflation level. Last month the index remained at the same level of 2.3%, as it was forecast by analysts. Higher-than-expected data will bring a positive momentum to the British currency.

• If CPI is higher than expected, the GBP will rise;

• IF CPI is lower, than expected, the GBP will fall.

Evergreen buck steadies


On Tuesday, the evergreen buck managed to stabilize in Asia because the International Monetary Fund had its 2019 as well as 2020 global surge forecasts cut overnight.

The IMF currently projects a 3.5% surge rate worldwide for this year and also 3.6% for next year. Eventually, these are 0.2% and also 0.1% below its previous estimates in October.

The fund cited a “no deal” Brexit, China-US trade clashes, a resumed tightening of financial conditions as well as a deeper-than-expected deceleration in China as the major reasons for the downgrade.

The news showed up several hours after on Monday China posted its slowest quarterly economic surge since the financial meltdown.

The Chinese economy managed to ascend by 6.4% in the fourth quarter of the previous year from 2017, as anticipated. The surge appeared to be slower than the previous quarter's outcome of 6.5%.

For last year the full-year surge accounted for 6.6%, which turns out to be in line with expectations.

On Tuesday, the USD index rallied by 0.1% being worth 96.058.

Market participants are also waiting for further news on the US-China trade clash, as Chinese Vice Premier Liu He is braced for visiting America on January 30 and 31 for another round of trade negotiations.

As a matter of fact, the Japanese yen headed north. The currency pair USD/JPY went down by 0.2% being worth 109.43.

The Chinese Yuan rallied by 0.2% showing 6.8022 because China’s major financial institution had the Yuan reference rate set at 6.7854 in contrast with yesterday’s outcome of 6.7774.

As experts at Morgan Stanley told, they’d turned bullish on China’s currency due to the fact they were assured that China’s major bank would stay away from intervening during trade negotiations.

The currency pairs AUD/USD and NZD/USD went down by respectively 0.3% and 0.1%.
