USD/JPY Technical Analysis: correction to the possible bearish reversal (based on the article)

Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart: the price is on breakdown for 112.59 support level to be testing for the breakdown to be continuing.


  • "USD/JPY can often act as a helpful proxy as to how the market as a whole is viewing risk. Typically in market sentiment, if USD/JPY is higher, there is a relative sense of calm in markets as JPY is often sold in risk-seeking times. The move higher in USD/JPY after the November 8 election went in line with the aggressive move higher in equities alongside the aggressive sell-off in bonds that helped investors and analysts get a refresher on duration & convexity in fixed income markets."
  • "The recent fall in USD/JPY of ~5% has begun to cause traders to question the post-election rally. Unfortunately, there are strong narratives in markets, but no certainties. One of the key narratives is that the new Trump Presidential administration that comes into office this Friday has been riding a fiscal wave to project likely inflation and dollar repatriation that has been perceived to be a net-positive for USD and inflation expectations that have driven USD/JPY higher."
  • "However, as the narrative begins to come into question, though many of us at DailyFX believes the Strong-Dollar/ Inflation story resumes later this year, USD/JPY has broken down. From a technical perspective, there is a clear zone of support to watch below the current price of ~113 that is comprised of the Daily Ichimoku Cloud as well as the Fibonacci Zone that we’ve long been watching." 

If the price breaks support level at 110.26 on close daily bar so the reversal of the daily price movement to the primary daily market condition will be started. 
If not so we may see the ranging condition within the levels.

USD/CAD Ahead of BOC Rate Decision: daily bearish reversal; intra-day ranging bearish  (based on the article)


Daily price broke 100-day SMA/200-day SMA levels for the reversal to the primary bearish trend. The price is testing support level at 1.3017 to below for the bearish breakdown to be continuing.

  • "The USD/CAD has pressed to new 2017 lows at 1.3018, but the pair is now rebounding from this morning’s decline. Today’s decline has come ahead of Bank of Canada rate decision, where rates are expected to remain at 0.50%. While rates are expected to be unchanged, traders will look towards future policy cues from Governor Stephen Ploz that may directly affect the USD/CAD." 
  • "Technically the USD/CAD has turned bearish with the pair breaking below its daily 200 period moving average (MVA). This average resides at 1.3102, and if prices close beneath this value it will be the first time for the currency pair to do so in three months. While today’s price action qualifies as a daily breakout, traders will next look for the pair to close under the January 12th low at 1.3028. A move beyond this point exposes the next point of daily support near the psychological 1.30000 value. Alternatively if prices rebound near present values, bullish USD/CAD signals may begin again once the pair has risen back above the previously mentioned average." 


H4 intra-day price is below 100 SMA/200 SMA in the bearish area of the chart. The price is started for the ranging within 61.8% Fibo level at 1.3188 and Fibo level at 1.3017.

If the price breaks 1.3188 resistance level to above so the rally will be started.
If the price breaks 1.3293 resistance level to above so we may see the the bullish reversal of the intra-day price movcement.
If the price breaks 1.3017 support level to below so the intra-day bearish trend will be resumed.
If not so the price will be on bearish ranging within the levels. 

  • "Intraday, the USD/CAD is trading well below today’s S4 pivot at 1.3128. While this bearish breakout occurred earlier in the session, traders may continue to use this point as an intraday point of resistance to time retracement entries. Traders looking for a bullish USD/CAD reversal should also continue to monitor today’s S4 pivot. If prices move back above this point, the next key value for the USD/CAD falls at 1.3150. A move here would suggest an invalidation of this morning’s breakout, and suggest at least a temporary change in the short term trend."

Gold Technicals: intra-day bullish channel to be broken for correction (based on the article)

H4 XAU/USD price broke bullish channel to below for the secondary correction to be started with 1,182 target.


  • "Traders looking to execute bullish strategies can look to catch support off of prior resistance around the zone comprising $1,200-$1,204.76. Both of these prices are relevant Fibonacci levels and this zone had offered resistance when prices were on the way-up, so this can be a very opportune zone to look for that next zone of ‘higher low’ support."
  • "Given the veracity of the move-higher, bears will likely want to wait for a break of swing support levels at $1,187.50 or $1,177 before entertaining down-side approaches."

From dailymail article:

  • "Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen on Thursday said it is "reasonable" for Congress to ask questions about Fed policy and why certain decisions deviate from recommendations from well-known monetary policy rules."
  • "But in response to a question from Stanford professor John Taylor, Yellen reiterated her opposition to a proposed law that would require the Fed to stick to Taylor's well-known policy rule and to submit to an audit should it deviate. Such a law, she said, opens the Fed to short-term political pressures."
