Weekly Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

wpt_trend_shift_body_Picture_3.png, Weekly Price & Time: Gold Trend Shift Looming

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has been in consolidation mode below the 8th square root progression of the year’s low at 1.3655 for over a week
  • The broader trend bias is higher while above last month’s low near 1.3100
  • A move through 1.3655 is needed to signal the start of another meaningful move higher
  • The middle of next month looks to be an important cycle turn window for the Euro
  • Important support is eyed 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

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY closed last week below critical Gann support in the 97.60 area
  • Our broader trend bias is now lower in the exchange rate
  • However, traction under the 7th square root progression of the year’s high 96.60 is needed to re-invigorate immediate downside prospects
  • Some cyclicality is seen over the next couple of weeks that could force a move out of the multi-month consolidation
  • A weekly close back over 98.60 will turn us positive again on USD/JPY.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD has come under more downside pressure this week and traded to its lowest level since early July
  • A weekly close below 1292 will shift the broader trend to negative
  • The 1350 area remains an important Gann resitance zone and strength above this area is needed to relieve near-term downside pressures
  • The second half of next week is an important cycle turn window
  • Under 1292 on a weekly closing basis exposes downside attractions at 1248 and 1214

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Will stop out of tactical longs on weekly close below 1292.
