Central banks could be key this week: Fed, BoE, BoJ

Recommended Posts

After a week in which it was obvious that inflation and confidence was key, this week’s central bank meetings will be of critical importance for the markets, especially the Federal Reserve (Fed) on Wednesday evening.


The Bank of England (BoE) at noon UK time on Thursday could raise rates by 50bps, but 25 is expected, and the Bank of Japan (BoJ), on Friday, is the least important of the three.

USD/JPY made a new 24-year high yesterday but only by a small margin when it eclipsed the 2020 peak of 135.16 to trade at 135.19.

Technically, one could argue that the 2020 high has not really been breach as it did not close above there. In any case, there might be resistance up to 135.20 if that area is revisited.

Last week the price above the upper band of the 21-day simple moving average (SMA) based Bollinger Bands. It has since moved back inside the band, and this may indicate a reversal is possible.

Support could be at the recent low 133.19 or further down at a break point in the 131.25 131.35 zone.
