Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

WPT_EUR_body_Picture_3.png, Weekly Price & Time: EUR/USD Flirting With An Important Upside Pivot

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD managed to briefly overcome the 1.3415 2Q13 high this week
  • However, a convincing close over 1.3415/30 is needed to shift the broader trend to positive
  • Longer-term cycle studies suggest next week is a potential cycle turn window
  • Some intermediate Gann related support is seen around 1.3300
  • Only weakness under the 2nd square root progression of the month-to-date high at 1.3220 would suggest a reversal in trend and turn the outlook negative

Tactical EUR/USD Strategy: Still short against a weekly close over 1.3415.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY moved higher this week to test again resistance at the 5th square root progression of this year’s high in the 98.60 area
  • While over the 2Q13 low near .9375 our longer-term trend bias will remain higher in the rate
  • A close over 98.60 on a weekly basis is needed to confirm that an upside resumption is underway
  • The second half of next week is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • The 97.50 retracement confluence is intermediate support, but only aggressive weakness below the 2Q13 low on a multi-day closing basis would alter the broader postive prospects of the exchange rate

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

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: Gold

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD overcame key Gann resistance at 1384 and traded to its highest level in over 2-months this week
  • While over the 3rd square root progression of the year-to-date low in the 1280 area our broader bias will remain positive on the metal
  • A weekly close over 1384 will be further evidence of a developing uptrend and exposes the 100% projection of the July advance at 1441
  • The second half of next week is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • The polarity principle suggests that 1350 is now important support, but only aggressive weakness below Gan support at 1280 would turn the broader technical outlook negative

Tactical Gold Strategy: We like tactical long positions in Gold while above 1280.
