CAD/JPY Analysis

The CAD/JPY Paris highly correlated to the petroleum markets. Because of this, I tend to follow this market quite a bit and also recognize that you need to pay attention to both the WTI Crude Oil market, and is currency pair. With this being the case, I believe that oil will be what you need to pay attention to figure out which direction the market will eventually move. The pair tends to fall with oil prices as Canada is a major exporter of crude oil, while Japan imports 100% of its petroleum. If the crude oil market rises and this pair does as well, the long position can be taken. On the other hand, if the oil markets fall and this pair does as well, selling is likely the way to go.
