Having broken below the Ichimoku cloud, the pair could be on its way to completing a Saucer Top Cycle. As CADJPY tests strong support, a break below 77 could open door for further drops towards 75 and 73 in extension. A failure to break will make 77 that much stronger.

However only a break above the Ichimoku cloud would signal a reversal and that the strong support has held the pair’s down-fall. Resisting pivot is set at 23% Fibonacci level at 79.70 and extended resistance is set at 81.50.

Asian Session: On Wednesday’s Asian session, all eyes will turn to the Land of  the Rising Sun.

Bank of Japan (BoJ) is currently deep in an aggressive easing campaign and is quickly losing its credibility. There is seemingly no scenario where the policy authority can rescue the strengthening Japanese Yen. This could position the market for a critical evaluation. In which case it can return Mr. Yen crosses to yet another uptrend. That means further down-moves for the CAD/JPY pair.

New York Session: All eyes will be on the US as the FOMC Rate Decision  and Fed Summary of Economic Projections is out at 6 PM GMT. Based on some of their recent testimonies, majority of the FOMC voting members are starting to lean towards a hawkish stance, which suggests that a rate hike could be on the table. Should the Fed decide to stay put for now, their revised economic projections might provide clues on whether a rate hike is still possible in December or not.

Next Day’s Sydney Session: The volatility will continue as we move to the next day’s Sydney session with Reserve Bank of New Zealand Rate Decision  at 9 PM GMT.
