Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD recorded a new high for the year on Friday before encountering resistance near the 61.8% retracement of the 2009/2010 decline
  • Our broader bias is positive on the Euro while above 1.3660
  • The 50% retracement of the 2008/2010 decline near 1.3955 is critical on the upside with traction above required to set off a more important move higher in 2014
  • The upcoming week looks like an important cyclical inflection point for the exchange rate
  • A move under the 8th square root relationship of the year’s low at 1.3660 would turn us negative on the Euro

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Looking to sell the Euro next week into the cycle turn window if ir reacts negatively.

  • USD/JPY touched its highest level in over five years on Friday
  • Our broader trend bias is positive in the exchange rate while above 103.00
  • The 61.8% retracement of the 2007/2011 decline at 105.55 is a potentially important inflection point with strength above needed to prolong the advance
  • A medium-term cycle turn window is next week
  • Only a move under 103.00 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Like being long against 103.00

  • XAU/USD closed at its lowest level of the year last week before finding support at the 1x2 Gann angle line of the 2012 high
  • Our broader trend bias is negative in the metal while below the 1x2 Gann angle line of the August high now near 1243
  • 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 1243 is needed to turn us positive on Gold

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being square here.
