CAD/JPY Analysis

The CAD/JPY pair initially tried to rally during the day on Tuesday but continues to find quite a bit of resistance near the 100-day exponential moving average. With this, it looks like the downtrend is ready to continue and if we can break below the bottom of the shooting star that form during the day on Tuesday, that of course is a very bearish sign. The 76 handle below should continue to be a fairly significant level, and as a result that is our target. As this trade is with the trend we don’t necessarily feel the need to move stop losses to break even very quickly.

The Crude Oil Inventories announcement comes out at 2:30 PM GMT. This announcement typically moves the Canadian dollar as it is considered to be a proxy for oil. A lower than expected number is strong for oil and therefore strong for the Canadian dollar, while the exact opposite is true on higher numbers.
