CADJPY Bearish Trend Could Form After a Valid Rising Wedge Breakout

CADJPY Bearish Trend Could Form After a Valid Rising Wedge Breakout

 Published: September 21st, 2023

The decline in oil prices has hurt the Canadian dollar, as Canada is the leading crude exporter to the United States. The Canadian Consumer Price Index (CPI) for August rose to 4.0% year-over-year, up from 3.3% in July, according to data released on Tuesday. The core CPI, which excludes volatile energy and food prices, increased from 3.2% to 3.3% year-over-year. These figures may prompt the Bank of Canada (BoC) to contemplate additional interest rate increases.

Sharon Kozicki, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Canada, has emphasized that the fluctuations observed in recent months are not unusual. This is why the central bank focuses primarily on core inflation measures.

On a different note, in remarks made by Japan's Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno, he stated that he does not rule out any options in response to currency fluctuations. For the Yen, it could raise the possibility of government intervention to support the currency. Moreover, speculation that the Bank of Japan (BoJ) may abandon its negative interest rate policy is positive for the Japanese Yen (JPY).

Based on this outlook, the Japanese Yen could rise against the Canadian Dollar, leading to a strong market reversal for CADJPY bulls.

Let’s see the upcoming price direction of this pair from the CADJPY technical analysis:
