Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD broke above Fibonacci resistance at 1.3600 this week to trade to its highest level since early February
  • The broader trend bias is higher while above last month’s low near 1.3100
  • The 8th square root progression of the year’s low at 1.3655 is the next clear area of resistance with traction above needed setup the next important push higher
  • The middle of next month looks to be an important cycle turn window for the Euro
  • Important support zones are seen at 1.3475 and 1.3250, but only a weekly close below 1.3100 turns the broader outlook negative on the Euro

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Looking to initiate tactical long positions in the Euro.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

WPT_jpy_body_Picture_2.png, Weekly Price & Time: USD/JPY Flirting with Break of Key Weekly Support

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has broken under a key Gann convergence in the 97.60 area to trade to its lowest level in over a month
  • A weekly close below this level will turn our broader trend bias lower in the exchange rate
  • The 5th square root progression of the year’s at 98.60 needs to be overcome to re-invigorate broader upside prospects
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen here
  • A weekly close under 97.60 will turn the outlook negative and focus will turn to 95.85

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Will stop out of tactical longs on a weekly close below 97.60.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD broke under the late September low at the start of the week to trade to its lowest level since early August
  • While above 1292 on a weekly closing basis our trend bias will remain higher in the metal
  • The 5th square root progression of the year’s low at 1350 remains important resistance with traction above needed to signal a trend resumption
  • The second half of the month is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • A weekly close below 1292 will turn us negative on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like tactical long positions in Gold while above 1292.
