Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

PT_game_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: Was that the Game Changer?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD overcome the 6th square progression of the year-to-date low near 1.3325 on Wednesday to trade to its highest levels since early February
  • While above 1.3475 our near-term trend bias will remain higher in the exchange rate
  • Some minor resistance is seen around 1.3570, but the real upside attraction looks to be a convergence of several key Gann and Fibonacci levels near 1.3600
  • A minor turn window is seen early next week, but a more important one is eyed around the 1st week of October
  • Interim support is seen around 1.3500, but only aggressive weakness below the 2nd Gann square root progression of the year’s high at 1.3475 would turn us negative on the single currency

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the long side while above 1.3475.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_game_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Was that the Game Changer?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY came under aggressive downside pressure on Wedesday, but held above important support in the 97.55 area
  • A close back above 98.75 on Thursday will re-instill the near-term positive trend bias
  • Gann related upside pivots at 99.65 and 100.65 need to be overcome to setup more important mover higher in the exchange rate
  • A minor turn window is seen on Friday
  • Only a close below major Gann support at 97.55 would turn us negative on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like buying on weakness against 97.55.

Price & Time Analysis: AUD/USD

PT_game_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Was that the Game Changer?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD overcam important Gann resistance at .9425 on Wedesday to trade to its highest levels in three months
  • While above .9290 the near-term trend bias will remain positive in the Aussie
  • The 6th square root progresion of the year’s low at .9545 is a clear upside attraction with strength above needed to maintain the immediate upside tack
  • The cycle turn window has shifted out a few days and the first half of next week now looks like the most likely time for a turn
  • Aggressive weakness below Gann support at .9290 would undermine the immediate positive tone and turn us negative

AUD/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over .9290.

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

PT_game_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Was that the Game Changer?

Using recent history as a guide (and the benefit of 20/20 hindsight) we should have known yesterday’s Federal Reserve decision would lead to a break higher as virtually every time the index has neared an important price/time point around an FOMC meeting in the “QE era” a positive outcome has been the result. Fed or no Fed the break of the 1710 early August high is significant from a cyclical perspective and removes a major piece of “time resistance” from the bearish equation. The path of least resistance now looks higher in a broader sense, but we don’t believe the advance will be one way. Yesterday’s rally saw the NYSE tick reach 1500 intraday which is a traditional leading indicator of exhaustion (especially after a three week 100 handle advance). A pretty clear medium-term cycle turn window is also in effect over the next couple of days which suggests a pullback should materialize here soon.
