GBP/JPY Weekly Outlook

GBP/JPY jumped to as high as 126.06 last week and met mentioned target of 100% projection of 117.29 to 122.04 from 119.58 at 124.33. Initial bias remains on the upside this week and further rise should be seen towards 127.30 resistance, which is close to 161.8% projection of 117.29 to 122.04 from 119.58 at 127.26. At noted before, we’re treating rebound from 117.29 as the third leg of consolidation pattern from 116.83. Hence, we’d expect upside to be limited by 50% retracement of 140.02 to 116.83 at 128.42 to finish the consolidation and bring down trend resumption. Below 124.49 minor support will turn bias neutral first. Break of 122.04 should then bring retest of 116.83 low next.

In the bigger picture, the choppy decline from 163.05 is viewed as part of the down trend from 251.09 and there is no clear sign of reversal yet. Such down trend is expected to continue after consolidation pattern from 116.83 finishes and target 110 psychological next. However, sustained break of above mentioned 128.42 will raise the odds that GBP/JPY has bottomed in medium term and will turn focus back to 140.20 resistance for confirmation.

In the longer term picture, fall from 251.09 is treated as resumption of multi decade down trend. Fall from 163.05 could be a wave five based on it’s choppy structure and lack of decisive momentum. After all, there is no sign of bottoming yet and GBP/JPY is still in favor to target 61.8% projection of 215.87 to 118.81 from 163.05 at 103.06, which is close to 100 psychological level, before the cross bottoms.

USD/CAD: Risk of a drop towards the Oct low at 0.9892 remains

By commerzbank

USD/CAD continues to oscillate around the 200 day moving average at 0.9985 and has done so for over one week, comments Karen Jones, analyst at Commerzbank. “Scope remains for a slide back to the October low at 0.9892 which is expected to hold the downside”.

According to the analyst, the market will find initial resistance at the December low and the 3rd January low at 1.0049/73, but key short term resistance is the 55 day ma and the 3 month downtrend at 1.0149/46. “This will need to be overcome for immediate downside pressure to diminish, something which is not likely to be seen this week, however”, said Jones.

“Only an unexpected drop and two daily closes below the October low at 0.9892 would point towards further range trading with a bearish bias, something we do not envisage happening at present”, Commerzbank analyst concluded.
