Japanese rate decision: Thursday, early morning. The Bank of Japan already enacts the loosest monetary policy in the developed world by committing to keep the 10-year yields depressed and with a negative interest rate. Nevertheless, the BOJ is far from its 2% inflation target. Will Governor Haruhiko Kuroda and his colleagues offer something new? They may extend their pledge for low rates, but that will not convince markets.

UK retail sales: Thursday, 8:30. Just before the rate decision, retail sales data for May are projected to fall by 0.5% after remaining flat in April. The UK economy has suffered in April after a surge in March – all related to stockpiling ahead of Brexit – which has not happened. It is important to note that fluctuations are common in this figure.

BOE decision: Thursday, 11:00. The Bank of England has expressed its intention to raise interest rates to stay ahead of the curve on inflation and to have a buffer in case of a recession. However, high uncertainty regarding Brexit has paralyzed any policymaking. Does the BOE still project a smooth Brexit? Do they still intend to raise interest rates or will they follow their colleagues in ditching the idea?

Update: We remain the same. As could be seen on the daily chart that the pair is traded below a strong resistance level that is 1.1447.

Therefore, we are bearish as long as the pair is traded below the resistance level of 1.1447. Our first target is 1.1217.
