Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

EUR/USD:

PT_GBP_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: GBP Leading the Way?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has broken away from the 1.3000 6th square root progression of the year-to-date high
  • Our trend bias remains lower, but weakness below the 78.6% retracement of the May to June advance near 1.2925 is needed to maintain the immediate downside tack
  • Medium-term focused time cycle studies indicate early next week is a turn window of some importance
  • The 61.8% retracement of May to June move higher at 1.3030 is now immediate resistance
  • However, only over 1.3125 turns us positive on the Euro

Strategy: Like holding short positions while below 1.3125

NZD/USD:

PT_GBP_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: GBP Leading the Way?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • NZD/USD continues to consolidate above the 78.6% retracement of the June to April advance in the .7715 area
  • Our trend bias remains lower, but traction below .7715 is desperately needed to trigger more meaningful downside momentum
  • Cycle studies point to early next week as a potential turn window in the Kiwi
  • The 2nd square root progression of last month’s low in the .7860 area remains key near-term resistance
  • Only clear strength above this level would turn us positive on the Bird

Strategy: Like being square for the time being. May look to go long next week if the Kiwi reacts well during the turn window.

EUR/CHF:

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/CHF has moved steadily higher since finding support in late June at the 78.6% retracement of the April to May advance near 1.2235
  • Our trend bias is lower while below the 1x2 Gann angle line of the year-to-date high in the 1.2355 area
  • The 50% retracement of the late June advance near 1.2300 needs to give way to set up a downside resumption
  • Very near-term focused cycles favor strength for a few more days
  • However, only a close over 1.2355 suggests a trend shift and turns us positive on the cross

Strategy: Only small short positions favored while below 1.2355.

Focus Chart of the Day: GBP/USD

PT_GBP_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: GBP Leading the Way?

Cable traded to its lowest level in over a month on Wednesday before rallying sharply from just under the 78.6% retracement of the May – June advance at 1.5165. The action is interesting from a short-term cyclical perspective as often times Sterling acts as a leader. As we noted yesterday, the broader cyclical outlook seems to favor a USD peak sometime around late this week or early next week. The current strength in the Pound suggests early/mid next week is now probably the more likely timeframe as another day or so of strength looks likely before the next move lower into the medium-term turn window. Aggressive strength over 1.5400 would signal that the rate has bottomed early. This looks less likely.
