Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_NOV_21_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: EUR/USD - Sell on Strength?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY finally broke above the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s high at 100.65 on Thursday to trade to its highest level since early July
  • Our near-term trend bias remains higher in the exchange rate while above 99.65
  • A daily close today over 100.60 will be further confirmation than an important move higher is unfolding
  • Some caution is needed over the next couple of days, however, as a Gann time relationship related to the year’s high suggests the rate is at increased risk of undergoing some kind of turn
  • Only a daily close below the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high at 99.65 would turn us negative on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the long side while above 99.65.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

PT_NOV_21_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: EUR/USD - Sell on Strength?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD is in consolidation mode above the 61.8% retracement of the October/November decline at 1.6100
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.5950
  • A Gann convergence near 1.6215 needs to be overcome to prompt a more important move higher in Cable
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen early next week
  • A daily close below 1.5950 would turn us negative on the rate

GBP/USD Strategy: Looking to buy on weakness.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

PT_NOV_21_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: EUR/USD - Sell on Strength?

EUR/USD waited until the last moment of our cycle turn window (perhaps even went through it by a few hours) before reversing course early on Wednesday. The exchange rate’s failure from just under the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3595 looks significant from a medium-term cyclical perspective and opens the way for further weakness in the near-term. Currently we are focused on Gann points at 1.3430 and 1.3360, with a daily close below the latter needed to confirm a resumption of the broader decline. Strength back through the 7th square root relationship of the year’s low at 1.3545 would make us seriously doubt the negative cyclical view, but only a move through Wednesday’s high of 1.3578 completely invalidates the cycle.
