I’m goin’ Kyle today because I spy with my little eye a pennant I could get ’cause it can get many likes… from forex traders, that is.
CAD/JPY has taken a break from its selloff and is trapped in what looks like a bearish pennant on the 1-hour time frame. If you’ve read your School of Pipsology, then you know that pennants like these tend to signal trend continuation. Oh, and look at the 100 SMA still chillin’ like a villain below the 200 SMA!
Is the Loonie in for more weakness against the yen? Time to bust out your breakout strategies and prepare your trading plans for this one, homies!
Remember that Fib play that we spotted a while back? Well, it looks like the bulls weren’t ready to jump back in then. The pair dipped below the 120.00 handle and is currently trading around 119.50 levels.
Is it better to jump in now? EUR/JPY is sporting some wicked wicks around the broken channel resistance area. Not really surprising since it also lines up with an area of interest from February.
A long trade at market could get you a decent reward-to-risk ratio especially if you think that the euro will go back to its March highs. But if you think that the pair is set to extend its downtrend, then you could also wait for it to go back to its falling channel and trade a possible move all the way to its February lows or even new 2017 lows.
