Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_btd_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: Looking for the Dip

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY found support on Wednesday just ahead of the 1x1 Gann angle line drawn from the February low
  • Subsequent strength back through the 50% retracement of the May to June decline in the 98.75 area has shifted the near-term trend bias back to positive
  • Some Gann resistance is seen at 99.65, but the main upside attraction is the 3rd square root progression of the year’s high at 100.65 with traction above needed to provoke a more important move higher
  • Some minor cycle turn windows are seen next week
  • Only weakness below 97.60 on a closing basis would turn the technical outlook negative

USD/JPY Strategy: Like buying on weakness against 97.60.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/CHF

PT_btd_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Looking for the Dip

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/CHF broke below the 88.6% retracement of the year-to-date range on Thursday to trade to its lowest level in over seven months
  • Our near-term trend bias remains lower in the exchange rate while below .9195
  • Some minor support is seen around .9075, but the main downside side attraction for us is the .9045 8th square root progression of the year’s low
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen in about a week’s time
  • The .9140 area is near-term resistance, but only a close back over .9195 would warn that a more important move higher is developing

USD/CHF Strategy: Like the short side while below .9195.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

PT_btd_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Looking for the Dip

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD traded to its highest level in over 8-months on Wednesday before encountering resistance at the 88.6% retracement of the year-to-date range
  • While above a convergence of the 2x1 Gann line of the year’s high and the 1x4 line of the year’s low near 1.5875 our near-term trend bias will remain higher in Cable
  • The 88.6% retracement at 1.6165 is near a clear-near-term pivot with strength above needed to set up an advance towards upside attractions at 1.6215 and 1.6260
  • The middle of next week is a clear cycle turn window for the exchange rate
  • Aggressive weakness below Gann support at 1.5875 would undermine the immediate positive tone in Sterling and turn us negative

GBP/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1.5875.

Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

PT_btd_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Looking for the Dip

XAU/USD reversed nicely off the 1x2 Gann angle line of the year-to-date low near 1293 on Wednesday. Subsequent strength through important Gann and Fibonacci resistance at 1350 suggests a resumption of the uptrend in place since late June. From a cyclical perspective out idealized time for a turn in the metal was actually today. Assuming that we don’t get a cyclical inversion here we think it is probably safe to say that the turn we were looking for just came a couple of days early (an occurrence that can happen frequently stronger uptrends). Strength beyond Monday over 1375 would completely alleviate any concerns of an inversion and setup a more important push higher. Unexpected weakness below 1293 would turn the technical outlook very negative.
