Daily Observations: September 11, 2012

Christopher Vecchio, CFA, Senior Strategist

Current Positions:

- Long EURCHF from 1.2018, Stop at 1.1990, Target 1 at 1.2500, Target 2 at 1.2750

- Long USDCHF from 0.9454, Stop at 0.9395, Target 1 at 0.9540, Target 2 at 0.9700

- Long USDJPY from 78.16 (added), Target 1 at 79.60, Target 2 at 80.60/65

Pending Positions:

- Pending Long USDJPY daily close >80.65

- AUDUSD: The AUDUSD is back on the up and up, testing 1.0400, but falling short of the highs set on Friday. As such, interim resistance comes in at 1.0400 (September high), 1.0410/20 (mid-August swing lows), and 1.0435/45 (mid-July and early-August swings). The picture is clear: there’s a lot of significant confluence (based on former support/resistance levels) in the airspace overhead. A breakdown eyes 1.0275/1.0300, 1.0210/25, and 1.0160/75 (weekly low). Bias: bearish.

- EURUSD: Little has changed over the past 24-hours: “The EURUSD made a huge technical breakthrough on Friday by shattering a yearlong descending trendline off of the August 2011 and October 2011 highs. This now marks the potential for a long-term bottom at the 1.2040/45 low. Additionally, while our bias for a move towards 1.1500 by November 1 is negated, a weekly close back within the channel – back below 1.2620/35 (former yearly low set in January) – would suggest a false breakout has occurred. Near-term resistance comes in at 1.2820/25 (late-May swing highs) and 1.2980/1.3000. Support comes in at 1.2740/50, 1.2620/35, 1.2500/10, and 1.2460/80.” Bias: bullish.

- GBPUSD: The GBPUSD has started trading higher, breaking last week’s high suggesting that the British Pound’s trajectory is very much upwards for September (based on opening ranges). As such, our opinion holds: “As long as price on the daily chart is supported by 1.5930/40, there’s reason to believe that a run up to 1.6120/40 is possible during September. Above 1.6120/40, the former April swing highs at 1.6260 (by close), 1.6300 (by high) are in focus; this would also represent a break of the descending trendline off of the April 2011 and August 2011 highs. Below 1.5930/40, near-term support comes in at 1.5860/75 (ascending trendline off of August 2 and August 31 lows), 1.5770/85 (late-August swing lows), and 1.5700.” Bias: bullish above 1.5930/40.

- USDJPY: The sell-off continues with price holding below the 78.10/20 level, with touches below 78.00 coming today. Nevertheless, 78.60 remains our line in the sand for bullish/bearish price action: a daily close above 78.60 suggests a move back towards 79.15/30 (100-DMA, 200-DMA, descending trendline off of the April 20 and June 25 highs); a daily close below 78.60 keeps 78.10/20 and 77.90 in focus, while penetration of the August low at 77.90 will likely result in a washout to new lows with the potential for 77.65/70 and 77.30. Bias: neutral.
