Weekly Price & Time: Euro Nearing a Critical Level

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD overcame a myriad of resistance in the 1.3300 area to trade to its highest levels since mid-June this week
  • Our medium-term trend bias remains lower in the Euro, but traction over the 1.3415 2Q13 high on a weekly closing basis will shift higher
  • Last week’s high near 1.3340 is interim support, but weakness below the 4th square root progression of the year’s low at 1.3185 is really needed to reinvigorate the downside prospects
  • The second half of the month looks like the next turn window of importance for the single currency
  • The 1.3415 2Q13 high is very significant from a Gann perspective and a weekly close over this level will alter the broader negative picture in place since June

Tactical EUR/USD Strategy: Short against a weekly close above 1.3415.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY broke below a key Gann/Fibonacci confluence around 97.60 this week to trade to its lowest level in 7-weeks
  • While over the 2Q13 low near .9375 our longer-term trend bias will remain higher in the exchange rate
  • The 97.60 area is now resistance and traction over this zone is needed to signal a a broader upside resumption
  • The second half of the month now looks like the next cycle turn window of importance
  • The 78.6% retracement near 95.50 important support and weakness below is likely to lead to a test of .9375 below which would turn us negative on USD/JPY

Tactical USD/JPY Strategy: Tactical longs still favored against .9375.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: Gold

weekly_PT_aug_9_body_Picture_1.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Nearing a Critical Level

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD has come under fairly steady pressure since failing near important Fibonacci symmetry in the 1350 area at the end of July
  • While below this level our medium-term trend bias will remain lower in the metal
  • The 4th square root progression of the July high near 1272 remains a key downside pivot with sustained weakness below this level needed to set off a more important decline
  • An important week long cycle turn window is seen around the end of next week
  • Strength over 1348 is needed to alter the negative cyclical picture and turn us positive on the metal.

Tactical Gold Strategy: We like tactical short positions in the metal while under 1348.
