Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Weekly_PT_euro_body_Picture_3.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Challenging a Key Support Zone

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD failed last week to close above the 1.3415 2Q13 high on a weekly basis
  • While below this level our broader trend bias will remain lower
  • The 2nd square root progression of the year-to-date high at 1.3220 is key support and a weekly close below this level is needed to signal a downside trend resumption
  • A long-term cycle turn window is in effect for a few days
  • A weekly close over 1.3415 will confirm a trend reversal and open the way for a much more important move higher in the weeks ahead

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

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Weekly_PT_euro_body_Picture_2.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Challenging a Key Support Zone

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has been unable to gain any real traction over 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 and then 99.65 on a weekly basis is needed to confirm that an upside resumption of the broader trend is indeed underway
  • The next few days are a turn window in the rate
  • The 97.50 retracement confluence remains intermediate support, but only aggressive weakness below the 2Q13 low on a multi-day closing basis would turn the broader outlook negative

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

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: Gold

Weekly_PT_euro_body_Picture_1.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Challenging a Key Support Zone

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD traded to its highest level since mid-May before finding resistance on a closing basis at the 7th square root progression of the year-to-date low at 1419
  • While abvoe the 3rd square root progression of the year-to-date low in the 1280 area our broader trend bias is positive on the metal
  • A weekly close over 1419 and then the 100% projection of the July advance at 1441 is needed to trigger the next leg higher in the metal
  • A medium-term turn window was seen around the middle of the week
  • The 4th square root progression of the year’s low near 1350 is important support, but only aggressive weakness below 1280 would turn the broader technical outlook negative

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