Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_dec_2_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Second Half of the Week Looks Key for the Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY probed above the 1st square root progression of the year’s high at 102.75 to reach its highest level since late May on Monday
  • Our near-term trend bias is positive on the exchange rate while over 100.65
  • The 161.8% extension of the September/October decline at 103.05 is the next level of resistance ahead of the year’s high
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen next week
  • Only a daily close below the 2nd square root progression of the year’s high at 100.65 would undermine the immediate positive tone in the rate

USD/JPY Strategy: Focus on long side opportunities while over 100.65.

Price & Time Analysis: AUD/USD

PT_dec_2_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Second Half of the Week Looks Key for the Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD fell to its lowest levels since early September on Friday before rebounding from strong support at the 7th square root relationship of the October high
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the Aussie while below .9170
  • A convergence of several important Fibonacci and Gann levels between .9060 and .9030 suggest it is an extremely important support zone and a daily close below is needed to confirm a resumption of the broader decline
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen next week
  • Only a daily close over .9170 will shift our near-term trend bias to positive in the Aussie

AUD/USD Strategy: We like being flat following the rebound from key support.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

PT_dec_2_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Second Half of the Week Looks Key for the Euro

The next week or so looks to be quite important for the Euro from a cyclical perspective. Starting around Wednesday and extending to next Tuesday a myriad of different cyclical methodologies all begin to converge. Perhaps the most important is a Fibonacci time relationship with last year’s low and the 1Q13 high at the end of the week. With EUR/USD having rallied steadily for over three weeks now a secondary high (versus the October high) of some kind forming during this turn window is clearly the favored scenario. Only aggressive weakness on a daily close basis over the next few days below 1.3430 would warn that the Euro has peaked ahead of schedule. Such aggressive weakness could also raise the possibility of a cyclical inversion (low instead of a high). Both look like relatively low probability scenarios at the moment.
