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 24-year high this week but lacked follow through
  • JPY directionality appears to have stalled ahead the Bank of Japan on Friday
  • If the Bank of Japan ignores inflation.

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.

    • It is a best practice to buy dip and sell high but this strategy mostly doesn’t go as planned because you can’t predict the final bottom. Some traders BTD anticipating a potential pullback which mostly doesn’t happen and this force some into panic selling. DYOR is mostly advisable but some people fail to know which analysis they should focus more on. When deciding to hold a token for a long-term FA is very important and its cardinal point should be thoroughly scrutinized before making such a decision. These points include; Whitepaper, Road map, and Usecase. These points have a huge impact on deciding how long to hold a project and also booast your confidence in the project's bullish potential.  The first principle in this industry is “invest what you can afford to lose" though many neglect this principle as such when a project is going through a price correction they panic sell and sell at a huge lost. Most normal regret their decision later when they see the project back on track. Once you adhere to the first principle you hardly fall victim to panic sales. Note that it is mostly not advisable to hold meme tokens una less you are convinced because meme goes with the hype and finds it hard to retest its ATH once the hype is over.  Anyway what are your trading strategy and principles you adhere to most?
