Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

PT_NOV_14_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: USD/JPY Breaks 100 - What Now?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD remains in consolidation mode above the 50% retracement of the July to October advance at 1.3295
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the exchange rate while below 1.3545
  • The 1.3360 area is interim support, but weakness under 1.3295 is really needed to signal a resumption of the broader decline
  • Friday to Tuesday is a potentially important cycle turn window in the Euro (we are favoring some sort of low)
  • Only a move over the 6th square root progression of the year’s low near 1.3545 would turn us positive on the rate

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below 1.3545, but this should be reduced ahead of the cycle turn window.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

PT_NOV_14_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: USD/JPY Breaks 100 - What Now?

A few weeks ago we wrote about the chart above. It is depicts a simple 61.8% “time retracement” of the advance from the 3Q2012 low to this year’s high. Our main premise was that USD/JPY was becoming vulnerable to a break from the contracting range/triangle that had dictated trading over the prior few months. We believed this because our close observation of markets over the years has shown that long consolidations often terminate around important Fibonacci time relationships. Interestingly since this cyclical “turn window” late last month the exchange rate has marched steadily higher to overcome the upper trend line of the formation over the past few days. An important directional move seems to be developing. We are now focused on Gann resistance at 100.05 and 100.65. A move over the latter looking to be the final piece of the puzzle (with traction above likely setting off a much more impulsive move). Only weakness under 97.60 brings a false pattern break scenario back into play.
