Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/GBP

PT_cross_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: Cross Rates Lead the Way?

EUR/GBP exhibited some interesting price action yesterday as it reversed sharply intraday from a convergence of the 50% retracement of the August to October decline and the 1x1 Gann angle line of the August high in the .8550 area. The latter half of the week has been a focus time period for us from where a correction could materialize. With Thursday’s failure at key resistance it looks like this move lower is indeed underway. A daily close below .8505 would be further evidence of a top and open the way for a decline into at least the middle of next week. Clear strength through .8550 would invalidate the potential cycle top.

Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

PT_cross_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Cross Rates Lead the Way?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD printed new year-to-date highs early on Friday before encountering resistance near the 1.3830 61.8% retracement of the 2011 to 2012 decline
  • Our near-term trend is positive in the Euro while over 1.3655
  • The 1.3830 level is an important upside pivot with strength above needed to propel the rate towards the next important attraction at 1.3880/95
  • A medium cycle turn window is seen today
  • Weakness under the 9th square root progression of the year’s low at 1.3655 would turn undermine the immediate positive tone in the Euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Holding reduced longs over 1.3655. Wary of week-long counter trend move developing from this turn window.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/CAD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/CAD reversed sharply from Fibonacci support at the start of the week to trade to its highest levels in over a month
  • Our near-term trend bias is now higher in Funds and will remain so while above 1.0370
  • The 61.8% retracement of the July to Sepetmber decline 1.0445 is an important pivot with traction above needed to expose Gann attractions at 1.0475/85
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen early next week
  • A daily close below Fibonacci support at 1.0370 would turn us negative again on Funds

USD/CAD Strategy: Looking to buy USD/CAD on weakness.

Price & Time Analysis: S&P 500

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • S&P 500 has been in consolidation mode since recording a new all-time high on Tuesday
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the index while over the 4th square root progression of the June low in the 1708 area
  • A convergence of minor Fibonacci extensions in the 1758 area is acting as resistance and a move above is needed to expose more important attractions at 1778 and above
  • The middle of next week is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • Interim support is seen around 1730, but weakness below 1708 is really needed to turn the technical picture more clearly negative

S&P 500 Strategy: Like the long side while over 1730.
