Weekly Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Weekly_gold_nearing_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Gold Nearing Major Downside Pivot

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD rebounded off the 38% retracement of the year’s range last week to test Gann resistance near 1.3325 over the past few days
  • While below the 1.3415 2Q13 high our broader trend bias will remain lower in the Euro
  • A multi-day close below 1.3110 is needed to trigger a more important downside move
  • A cycle turn window is seen around the middle of next week
  • The 1.3325 area is immediate resistance, but only a close over 1.3415 turns the broader Euro outlook to positive

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

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Weekly_gold_nearing_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Gold Nearing Major Downside Pivot

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY traded this week to just shy of Gann resistance related to the year’s high in the 100.65 area
  • While above the 2Q13 low near .9375 our longer-term trend bias will remain higher in the exchange rate
  • The 100.65 level is now a key pivot on the upside with a multi-day close above this level required to setup the next important advance in the rate
  • Late next week is a cycle turn window
  • A cluster of Gann supports near 98.60, 97.60 and 96.70 are important, but only weakness below .9375 will turn the broader outlook to negative in USD/JPY

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

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Weekly_gold_nearing_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Gold Nearing Major Downside Pivot

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD weakened further this past week and broke under key retracement support at 1337
  • While over the 1270 support level our broader trend bias will remain higher in the metal
  • The 5th square root progression of the year’s low near 1350 is once again resistance and a close over this level is needed to reinvigorate upside prospects
  • Late next week is a cycle turn window
  • Weaknes below 1270 would undermine too much of the positive traction gained over the past few months and turn us negative on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like tactical long positions in Gold while above 1270.
