Analysis: Key Cycle Point in the Euro

Analysis: Key Cycle Point in the Euro

2013-04-25 20:29:00

The next few days look to be important for the currency market and in particular for EUR/USD. Several Fibonacci and Gann based methodologies indicate this week part of next week should be significant for the exchange rate. Such a convergence of different cycles is rare and we are now looking for some sort of change in trend to materialize during this timeframe.

While there is a chance that a top has already been seen, our very short-term focused cycles suggest some remaining strength could be seen over the next few days before a peak materializes. Important resistance is seen at the 1x1 Gann Angle line drawn from the year-to-date high in the 1.3115 area ahead of the pivotal 4th square root progression from this year’s low at 1.3200. If a top is going to indeed materialize in the pair over the next few days then we would expect it to do so in from within this resistance zone. We like selling the Euro over the next few days near 1.3115 with a 1-day closing stop over 1.3200.
