Credit Agricole with Week Ahead: Relative Value Trades With Degrees of Separation From The Brexit Trade (adapted from the article)

Credit Agricole was analysiing the Brexit situation onto the forex price movement with the taking into account the pairs with the good degrees of the separation from the Brexit trade for example:

  • "Our preference still is for relative value trades like long AUD/NZD."
  • "We stick with our long USD/CAD call as we maintain our constructive view on USD overall especially against G10 commodity currencies."
  • "The outcome of the Upper House elections in Japan may increase the chances of structural reforms and add to investors bets on further BoJ easing. At the margin, this could help weaken the JPY."

Let's describe the situation with the technical points of view.

USD/JPY - Next Week Forecast. Credit Agricole indicated the local uptrend as the bear market rally for the price to be started in the coming week - the daily price is located below Ichimoku cloud in the primary bearish area of the chart with the ranging within the narrow support/resistance levels. So, the secondary rally may be started by 103.39 resistance level to be broken by the price to above and with 107.86 possible bullish reversal target, alternative - if the price breaks 100.19 support ot below on daily close bar so the ranging bearish market condition will be continuing with 98.93 bearish target to re-enter. 


Most likely scenario for the daily price is the following: bearish ranging within the levels.

Fundamental Weekly Forecasts for Dollar Index, GBP/USD, USD/JPY, AUD/USD, USD/CNH and GOLD (based on the article)

USD/JPY - "Will BOJ Governor Kuroda point to further policy easing at the bank’s September meeting? Its July statement said the bank would perform a “comprehensive assessment” on the effectiveness of its inflationary monetary policies in September. Such a statement suggests that officials knew the July announcement would come as a disappointment. And yet officials’ reluctance to act more aggressively underlines their hesitation on further policy easing."

Daily price is below 100 period SMA and 200 period SMA in the bearish area of the chart. The price broke symmetric triangle pattern for the bearish trend to be continuing with 100.67 support level to be tested to below for the 98.97 level as a nearest bearish target. Alternative, if the price breaks 107.48 resistance level to above so the secondary rally within the primary bullish trend will be started with 114.55 bullish reversal level as a possible target.

If D1 price breaks 100.67 support level on close bar so the bearish trend will be continuing.
If D1 price breaks 107.48 resistance level on close bar from below to above so the secondary bear market rally will be started.
If not so the price will be on bearish ranging within the levels.



  • Recommendation for long: watch close daily price to break 107.48 for possible buy trade
  • Recommendation to go short: watch daily price to break 100.67 support level for possible sell trade
