Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/GBP

PT_NOV_6_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: Breather Before the ECB

Cross rates have always proven a little more difficult for us to analyze from a cyclical perspective. We assume it is partly to do with the “synthetic” nature of their pricing. Whatever the case may be, we have learned to give cross rates a little more breathing room when looking for turns. An instance where we didn’t take our own advice recently is EUR/GBP. We were initially looking for a peak in the cross around the 24th of last month near .8550. After a minor stutter step the cross pushed higher for 3 more days (into month-end we might add) to the next Gann resistance zone at .8580 before reversing sharply. While a little frustrating, such action is not uncommon. The bright side is that the sharp decline puts the cross back into a good position cyclically. We are now looking a minor recovery to develop lasting at least a couple of days (or should we say four?) after which the decline should continue if our interpretation of the cyclical picture is correct.

Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

PT_NOV_6_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Breather Before the ECB

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD is in consolidation mode above the 3rd square root progression of the year’s high near 1.3475
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the exchange rate while under the 50% retracement of late October to early November decline at 1.3635
  • The 1.3475 level is a clear downside pivot with a daily close below this level needed to signal the start of another important move lower in the Euro
  • The latter part of the week is a minor turn window
  • Only back over 1.3635 would turn our outlook more positive on the rate

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below 1.3635.

Price & Time Analysis: NZD/USD

PT_NOV_6_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Breather Before the ECB

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • NZD/USD found support last week just above the 4th square root progression of the October high in the .8185 area
  • Our near-term trend bias is now higher in the Bird and will remain so while above .8275
  • The 1st square root progression of the October high at .8440 is a clear pivot and traction over this level is needed to confirm the start of a more important move higher
  • The latter part of the week is a cycle turn window
  • A decline back under the 3rd square root progression of the October high at .8275 would turn us negative again on the Kiwi

NZD/USD Strategy: Square here.

Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

PT_NOV_6_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Breather Before the ECB

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD has come under steady pressure since encountering strong resistance at the 2nd square root progression of the August high in the 1357 area
  • Our near-term trend bias remains higher in the metal while above the 1276 1x1 Gann angle line of the year’s closing low
  • The 1322 area is immediate resistance, but traction over 1357 is really needed to prompt a more meaningful move higher
  • A cycle turn window is seen today
  • A daily close below 1276 would turn us immediately negative on Gold

XAU/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1276
