Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

WPT_nov_22_body_Picture_3.png, Weekly Price & Time: USD/JPY Overcomes Key Resistance Zone

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has traded fairly steadily higher since finding support a couple of weeks ago at the 50% retracement of the July to October advance near 1.3290
  • However, our broader bias remains negative on the Euro while below 1.3595
  • The 1.3290 level remains a key downside pivot with weakness below needed to trigger a more material decline
  • The 2nd week of December is the next material cycle turn window
  • A move back through the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3595 would shift our broader trend bias to positive

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Like holding a tactical short position while below 1.3595.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY overcame the critical resistance at 100.65 to touch its highest level since early July this week
  • Our broader trend bias is positive in the exchange rate while above the 4th square root relationship of the years’ high at 99.65
  • A convergence of several Gann and Fibonacci levels between 101.60 and 101.70 is the next big resistance zone of note
  • A Gann cycle turn window is in effect over the next couple of days
  • Only a move under 99.65 would shift the trend bias to negative in the exchange rate

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Like being long against 99.65.

  • XAU/USD traded this week to its lowest level since early July
  • Our broader trend bias is negative on the metal and will remain so while below 1322
  • The 5th square root relationship of the August high at 1243 is an important downside pivot with a close below needed to signal a downside continuation
  • The first half of next month is the next important cycle turn window
  • A daily close back over a confluence of Gann and Fibonacci levels in the 1322 area will turn us positive on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being square here.
