– Tuesday will be quiet as well, with the Australian and Italian markets not operating

– The only key data will be the CB Consumer Confidence from the US which is expected to come at 104.1

– We will also see the Core Durable Goods Orders number, where a drop of -0.2% is expected


– Thursday will be pretty empty, which is not really common

– Friday will be by far the busiest day in the calendar and we will start with the BoJ policy statement and outlook followed by the press conference

– Traders on the Euro will be excited to see the Prelim CPI from Germany which is expected to come at 0.6%

Setups for This Week:



Primary View:

The pair is approaching the end of the symmetric triangle pattern

This week, we will probably witness a breakout indicating the direction for the next few weeks

Monday starts with a test of the upper boundary, which makes the bullish breakout slightly more probable

Alternative View:

If the price breaks the lower line of the triangle, we will get a proper signal to sell


Primary View:

Friday ended with a proper drop, which cancelled the gains from the whole week

The drop did not happen in a random place as it was a bounce off the key, long-term down-trendline

That bounce confirms the bearish sentiment and a sell signal

Alternative View:

AUDJPY breaking the down-trendline would be a legitimate signal to go long


Primary View:

Last week brought about a comeback above the major up-trendline

This means that the breakout to the downside was a false one and it can serve as a proper signal to buy

As long as we stay above the up-trendline, the sentiment is positive

Alternative View:

USDCAD dropping below the up-trendline again will be a signal to go short
