Weekly Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Weekly_PT_Euro_body_Picture_3.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Threatening Major Break?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD finally broke above the 8th square root progression of the year’s low at 1.3675 this week and is now within striking distance of new year-to-date highs
  • The broader trend bias is higher in the Euro while above important Gann support at 1.3475
  • A move through the 1.3710 year-to-date high is needed to expose Gann attractions at 1.3770 and higher
  • The second half of next week is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • A weekly close below 1.3475 would turn us negative on the Euro.

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

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Weekly_PT_Euro_body_Picture_2.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Threatening Major Break?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY breached resistance at 98.60 intra-week, but a close over this level looks unlikely
  • Our broader trend bias is lower in the rate while below this level on a weekly closing basis
  • Weakness under the 7th square root progression of the year’s high at 96.60 is needed to re-invigorate immediate downside prospects
  • The end of the month is the next clear potential medium-term cycle turn window
  • Only aggressive strength over 98.60 on a weekly closing basis will turn us positive again on USD/JPY

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Square here, but will sell a break of 96.60.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Weekly_PT_Euro_body_Picture_1.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Threatening Major Break?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD touched its lowest level in over three months this week before aggresively rebounding from just below the 1x1 Gann angle line of the year’s closing low at 1260
  • Our trend bias is negative, but a weekly close over the second square root progression of this week’s low at 1322 will shift it to positive
  • The 1x1 line of the year’s low now at 1265 is important support and a close below this level is needed to signal a resumption of the broaer decline
  • Some minor turn windows are seen next week
  • A weekly close over 1322 will turn the technical outlook in the metal much more constructive

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Square here. May look to initiatiate tactical gold longs on a weekly close over 1322.
