  • ...but before you write off H&S patterns because more have fallen apart rather than catalyzed lately, consider the monthly chart of $AUDUSD as well. That 0.8000-0.7925 zone is no joke as its historical midpoint, trendine and other technical points confluence https://t.co/dB6edmmA1d
  • While there are other Dollar pairs getting more attention lately, I think $AUDUSD deserve a spot in the rotation. It's currently working out whether it is going to abide 2021's range as a consolidation reversal risk (H&S pattern)... https://t.co/M7dG0a8Isw

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

WPT_DEC_20_body_Picture_3.png, Weekly Price & Time: Gold & Yen Seeing Extremes in Sentiment

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD failed this week just shy of the 61.8% retracement of the 2011/2012 decline at 1.3830
  • Our broader bias is positive on the Euro and will remain so while above 1.3590
  • The 1.3830 level and the 50% retracement of the 2008/2010 decline near 1.3955 are critical on the upside with traction above required to set off a more important move higher in 2014
  • The last week of the year looks like an important cyclical inflection point
  • A move under the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3595 would turn us negative on the Euro

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Looking to sell around the end of the year.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

  • USD/JPY traded to its highest level in over 5 years this week
  • Our broader trend bias is positive in the exchange rate while above 101.60
  • The 100% extension of the September/October decline 104.50 is important resistance with traction above now needed to extend the advance
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is seen around the end of the year
  • Only a move under 101.60 would undermine our positive view on the exchange rate

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Like being long against 101.60

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

  • XAU/USD closed at its lowest level of the year on Thursday
  • Our broader trend bias is negative in the metal while below the 1x2 Gann angle line of the August high near 1253
  • The year’s intraday low near 1180 is an important near-term pivot with weakness below this level needed to confirm a more important decline
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is eyed around the end of the year
  • A daily close back over 1253 is needed to turn us positive on Gold

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being square here with sentiment so lopsided in the metal at the moment.
