The USD/JPY currency pair
- Prev Open: 130.09
- Prev Close: 129.89
- % chg. over the last day: -0.15%
The fundamental picture for the USD/JPY currency pair remains the same. The Fed is tightening monetary policy, while the Bank of Japan, on the contrary, holds a soft policy, and nothing will change soon. As a rule, monetary tightening leads to a strengthening of the national currency, while easing, on the contrary, leads to depreciation. As a result, the USD/JPY quotes tend to grow mid-term. Japan Services PMI has grown from 50.7 to 52.6, a good sign of economic recovery.
- Support levels: 129.48, 128.76, 128.10, 127.64, 127.24, 127.04

The medium-term trend on the USD/JPY currency is bullish. The price is steadily growing, the MACD indicator is in the positive zone, and there is no sign of reversal. Buy trades can be considered from the support level of 129.48, but with confirmation. A resistance level of 130.12 is good for sell deals, but only with additional confirmation and short targets.
Alternative scenario: If the price fixes below 128.10, the downtrend will likely resume.

After the Central Bank of Canada raised its overnight base rate by half a percentage point to 1.5%, Deputy Governor Paul Baudry on Thursday gave new guidance on how high borrowing costs could be. The discount rate could now rise to the maximum or even above what the Bank of Canada considers its "neutral range", estimated at between 2% and 3%. This is a green light for the Canadian currency to strengthen.
- Support levels: 1.2566, 1.2510
- Resistance levels: 1.2623, 1.2676, 1.2728, 1.2765, 1.2807, 1.2893, 1.2953, 1.3000
The USD/CAD currency pair is bearish in terms of technical analysis. The MACD indicator is in the negative zone. The selling pressure is still there. Under such market conditions, it is better to look for buy trades on the lower time frames from the support level of 1.2566, but it is better to wait for the bullish initiative. For sell deals, it is better to consider the resistance level of 1.2623, but also better with confirmation and short targets.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks through and consolidates above 1.2728, the uptrend will likely resume.
