Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:


PT_gold_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: Gold Breaks Key Support Levels - Now What?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/CHF has traded steadily higher since finding support the week before last at the 7th square root progression of the year-to-date high
  • Our trend bias is now higher in the exchange rate with focus on the 3rd square root progression of the month-to-date low at .9415
  • A close above this level will be further confirmation of a broader developing up trend in the rate
  • Near-term focused cycles indicate the latter part of the week will be a minor turn window
  • The 2ns square root progression of this month’s low at .9320 is immediate support, but only weakness below .9240 turns us negative

Strategy: Long positions favored while over .9240


PT_gold_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Gold Breaks Key Support Levels - Now What?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • NZD/USD continues to meander around the 10th square root progression of the year-to-date high in the .7755 area
  • Our trend bias remains lower in Kiwi, but caution is required as the rate nears key long-term retracements below .7700
  • Cycles studies are a bit muddled, but a minor turn window is seen early next week
  • Immediate resistance is seen at .7805
  • However, only strength over the 2nd square root progession of this week’s low around .7860 would suggest a more important shift in trend

Strategy: Flat around these longer-term support levels. May look to go long over .7860.


PT_gold_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Gold Breaks Key Support Levels - Now What?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD has come under steady downside pressure since failing last week at the 1x1 Gann angle line of the year-to-date high
  • Our trend bias remains lower in Cable with with immediate focus on the 50% retracement of the February to March decline at 1.5355
  • A close below this level is required to set up further weakness towards 1.5290 and below
  • Cycles studies are broadly negative on the rate into the middle of next month
  • The 2nd square root progression of the month-to-date high 1.5500 is immediate resistance, but only back over 1.5630 turns the technical outlook positive

Strategy: Like holding short positons in Cable while below 1.5630.

Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

PT_gold_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Gold Breaks Key Support Levels - Now What?

The sharp decline in Gold on Wednesday is a great example of what can happen when key time and price supports are broken just after a cycle turn window. Last week we wrote about the potential for a turn in the metal between June 20-25. The decline did stall during this time period around 1270, but was unable to gain any upside traction back above our key pivot at the 1301 50% retracement of the 2008 to 2011 advance. As we have noted in the past, a failure to show much reaction at a turn window is often a key development seen ahead of an acceleration in the direction of the primary trend. This looks to be precisely what we got today on the break of Monday’s “cycle low”. This obviously puts the metal in a precarious cyclical position, but with DSI and other sentiment metrics showing extreme negative readings we are still very wary of a potentially violent snapback when this current decline runs its course. Immediate downside Gann levels to watch over the next couple of days are 1220 and 1207.
