Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

PT_OCT_31_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: EUR/USD - Correction or Change in Trend?

Writing a cycle focused market report on the last day of the month is always a bit of a crap shoot as a couple of big orders around the London fix can make one look very foolish. That said we will give it a go as the EUR/USD short-term picture looks fairly clear. The correction we were looking for from last week’s medium-term cycle turn window has unfolded nicely and especially over the past 24-hours as the rate has taken out key support levels at 1.3740 and 1.3715. Friday and part of Monday look like a pretty clear minor turn window from where EUR/USD should try to turn up. How aggressive this anticipated move up is will be a big clue as to whether the correction has more room to run or not. A tepid recovery (or failure to bounce at all) that holds well below 1.3770 and lasts only a couple of days sets up a deeper decline over the next few weeks. An aggressive rally, on the other hand, early next week back through 1.3770 would signal that correction was only a week long affair and the broader uptrend is resuming.

Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_OCT_31_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: EUR/USD - Correction or Change in Trend?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY remains stuck near the center of the multi-month narrowing range
  • Our near-term trend bias is positive on the exchange rate while above 96.55
  • The 5th square root progression of the year’s low at 98.60 is immediate resistance, but traction over 99.00 is really need to signal the start of a more meaningful direction move higher
  • A longer-term Fibonacci time relationship suggest a breakout of the range is forthcoming in the next few days
  • The 97.55 area is near-term support, but only under the 7th square root progression of the year’s high at 96.55 would turn us negative on the rate

USD/JPY Strategy: Square awaiting more directional clarity.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD has come under steady pressure following last week’s failure to overcome the early October high at 1.6260
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher while above 1.6015
  • The 1.6090 area is immediate resistance, but traction over 1.6260 is really needed to signal that the broader uptrend is resuming
  • Early next week is a minor turn window
  • A daily close below the convergence of the 78.6% retracement of the year’s range and the 1x3 Gann angle line of the year’s low in the 1.6015 area would shift the trend bias to negative

GBP/USD Strategy: Like only reduced longs while above 1.6015.

Price & Time Analysis: AUD/USD

PT_OCT_31_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: EUR/USD - Correction or Change in Trend?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD found support yesterday just below the .9455 61.8% retracement of the October range
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the Aussie while below the 8th square root progression of the year’s low at .9595
  • The .9455 level is now an important near-term pivot with weakness below needed to trigger the next leg lower in the rate
  • A very minor cycle turn window is seen over the next day or so
  • Only unexpected aggressive strength back over .9595 would shift our trend bias back to positive in the Aussie

AUD/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below .9595
