Inflation expectations in the UK have reached a 13-year high. The 10-year breakeven rate reached 4%, which is twice the target of the Bank of England. The increase came on the back of a record rise in UK gas prices this week. The growth of the construction sector also slowed down in September.

- Resistance levels: 1.3639, 1.3685, 1.3759, 1.3812, 1.3886
On the hourly time frame, the GBP/USD trend is bearish. The British currency looks more confident than the euro, due to a direct correlation with oil prices. The MACD indicator has become inactive. Buy trades should be considered only throughout the day and only with short targets from the support levels after the buyer’s initiative. Sell trades can be found at the resistance levels near the moving average line.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.3759 resistance level and consolidates above, the bullish scenario will likely resume.

The main trend of the USD/JPY currency pair is bullish. The MACD indicator has become inactive, the price begins trading flat. Under such market conditions, it’s better to look for buy positions from the support levels near the moving average.

The USD/CAD currency pair
- Prev Open: 1.2576
- Prev Close: 1.2590
- % chg. over the last day: +0.11%
The Canadian dollar is a commodity currency, so USD/CAD is highly dependent on the dynamics of the dollar index and oil prices. The dollar index was slightly stronger yesterday, while oil prices decreased. As a result, the USD/CAD quotes have slightly increased, but the price is still trading in a wide flat.
- Support levels: 1.2565, 1.2518, 1.2425
- Resistance levels: 1.2611, 1.2729, 1.2774, 1.2891
From the technical point of view, the trend of the USD/CAD currency pair is bearish. But the MACD indicator is showing the divergence in the direction of buying. Under such market conditions, it is better to look for sell deals from the resistance levels near the moving average. Buy deals should be considered from the false breakdown zone but with short targets.
Alternative scenario: if the price breaks out through the 1.2774 resistance level and fixes above, the uptrend will likely resume.
