Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

PT_euro_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: Cycle Turn Window in EUR/USD Today

EUR/USD has been unable to gain much traction over the 7th square root progression of the year’s low in the 1.3645 area. With today being a clear medium-term cycle turn window for the single currency we will be on the lookout for any potential signs of a top. The lack of any real extreme sentiment in the rate as evidenced by a sub 70% DSI reading is not our ideal setup for a trending instrument into a turn window. Nevertheless, there are plenty of potential momentum divergences on the daily that suggest the rate is vulnerable here. A level that we will be watching closely over the next couple of days is the 78.6% retracement of the year-to-date range at 1.3500. Weakness below there would be an initial sign of a top. The real clear level on the downside, however, is the 2nd square root progression of the year’s high at 1.3475. Strength after Wednesday above 1.3600 would invalidate the turn window.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_euro_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Cycle Turn Window in EUR/USD Today

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has come under steady pressure since failing near the 78.6% retracement of the July to August decline at the beginning of last month
  • A confluence of several key Gann and Fibonacci levels near 97.50 is major support and while above this level our trend bias is higher
  • A move back over the 50% retracement of the July to August decline at 98.95 is needed to re-invigorate upside prospects
  • The second half of the week is an important cycle turn window for the exchange rate
  • A daily close below 97.50 would turn the technical outlook to negative

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the long side while above 97.50.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD overcame Gann resistance at 1.6240 on Tuesday to trade to a new 9-month high on Tuesday
  • Our trend bias remain positive on Cable while above the 1x4 Gann angle line of the year’s low in the 1.6020 area
  • A daily close over Gann resistance at 1.6140 is needed to prompt the next push higher towards attractions at 1.6040 and above
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen around the end of the week
  • Weakness below 1.6020 would warn that a more important correction is commencing

GBP/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1.6020.

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • S&P 500 tested the 3rd square root progression of the June low at 1673 on Monday before rebounding aggressively to close back above critical support at 1680
  • While above the 50% retracement of the August/September range at 1680 our near-term trend bias will remain higher
  • Traction over 1710 is needed to re-invigorate upside prospects
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen today and early next week
  • A daily close below 1680 would turn us more negative on the index

S&P 500 Strategy: Like the long side whilst above 1680.
