Forex trading plan for Jan. 30
We are getting ready to sell EUR/USD targeting firstly 1.1225 and then 1.1100. On Friday there will be many data releases in the euro area, but one should certainly focus on inflation figures due at 10:00 GMT.
AUD/USD reached the 200-month MA at 0.7780. The outlook for Aussie is bearish as traders are speculating about the possibility of the Reserve Bank of Australia cutting rates next Tuesday. The next support is at 0.7650. Resistance is at 0.7950. On Friday watch Australian producer price data (00:30 GMT). NZD/USD shorts targeting 0.7150 seem like a good trade idea.
USD/CAD has surged to 1.2550. The pair is certainly very overbought and required correction at least to 1.2400. On the upside targets lie at 1.2630, 1.2680 and 1.2700. The US and Canada will release GDP data at 13:30 GMT.
GBP/USD and USD/JPY keep consolidating and the levels to watch for them remain pretty much the same. USD/JPY faces resistance at 118.80 and 119.30 and has support at 117.25/15, 116.50 and 115.85. GBP/USD has resistance at 1.5155, 1.5200, 1.5267 and support at 1.5100, 1.5050 and 1.5000. The US GDP release should bring more volatility in these pairs.
