4 Pairs to Watch Next Week

4 Pairs to Watch Next Week

As the trading week comes to a close, and forex traders are given another weekend of respite to mentally rest and/or backtest, it is worth considering where to pick back up on Monday. While there are many criteria to consider when selecting pairs to watch closely, in this article we will list several such pairs based on scheduled economic data releases and compelling EdgeFinder analysis. Based on these two categories, here are 4 pairs to watch next week.

1) GBP/CAD (Receives a -7, or ‘Strong Sell’ Signal)

On Tuesday, September 20th, Statistics Canada will be releasing a variety of month-over-month and year over year CPI data for August. On Thursday, September 22nd, the Bank of England (BoE) is forecast to hike the Official Bank Rate by 50 basis points, issuing a corresponding monetary policy summary as well. The Bank of Canada has been far more hawkish as of late than the BoE, so unless there are any bullish surprises, this pair seems likely to continue its bearish trend.

2) GBP/CHF (Receives a -7, or ‘Strong Sell’ Signal)

Along with the aforementioned BoE upcoming monetary policy decision, the Swiss National Bank (SNB) will also be deciding on a new policy rate on Thursday, September 22nd. The SNB is expected to implement a rate hike of 75 basis points, doing away with the precedent of negative interest rates. These expectations have seen this pair fall to historically significant lows, as can be glimpsed on the 1-week timeframe above.

3) GBP/USD (Receives a -6, or ‘Strong Sell’ Signal)

This pair presents another opportunity to sell GBP, since the Federal Reserve will be adjusting the Federal Funds Rate on Wednesday September 21st, as well as issuing accompanying economic projections and a related statement. Fed Chair Jerome Powell currently shows no signs of relenting from hawkishness as a 75 basis point rate hike is forecast. With support being tested, we will see whether the BoE or the Fed could present a catalyst for a breakout to the downside.

4) USD/JPY (Receives a 4, or ‘Buy’ Signal)

Along with the upcoming Federal Reserve decision, the Bank of Japan (BoJ) will also make a monetary policy decision this week. If the BoJ continues to keep their Policy Rate below-zero, further abstaining from rate hikes as currently forecast, this could usher in even more bullish momentum for this pair. Depending on how the Fed’s move meets or contrasts with market expectations, USD/JPY could yet again touch, or break out above, trendline resistance.

Why the New FOMC Decision Matters

Yesterday, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), the Federal Reserve’s policy-making body, implemented yet another 75 basis point interest rate hike. While this move was perfectly in line with market forecasts, Chair Powell’s comments following the subsequent press conference, in which he discussed the FOMC’s new set of economic projections, were significant. He continued to […]

Shocking CAD Inflation News

Statistics Canada released a surprising new batch of inflation data this morning: month-over-month CPI failed to meet market forecasts, declining by 0.3% instead of the anticipated 0.1%. Rather than being an outlier, the other measurements of CPI mostly followed suit, as both year-over-year Trimmed CPI and Median CPI likewise failed to meet expectations. Trimmed CPI’s […]

2 Paths for Aussie Bears

At 9:30 pm Eastern Time tonight, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) will be publishing their latest round of monetary policy meeting minutes. While there is a chance that their intentions could come across as more hawkish than expected, they currently have little reason to be. Despite relatively low unemployment at 3.5%, steady GDP growth, […]
