Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

WPT_Jan_3_body_Picture_3.png, Weekly Price & Time: Euro Threatening Break of Key Support

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD extended its decline following last week’s failure at the 61.8% retracement of the 2009/2010 decline
  • A weekly close below 1.3655 will turn us negative on the Euro
  • The 2012 closing high near 1.3800 is now critical resistance with strength above needed to relieve immediate downside pressure
  • The latter half of the month is the next medium-term cycle turn window

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Like adding to shorts on a weekly close below 1.3655.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY failed just shy of the 61.8% retracement of the 2007/2011 at 105.55 this week
  • Our broader trend bias is positive in the exchange rate while above 103.35
  • The 105.55 level remains critical resistance that must be overcome soon if another important leg higher is to unfold
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen next week
  • A weekly close below 103.35 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Like being long against 103.35

  • XAU/USD reversed from the 161.8% extension of the October advance this week at 1184
  • Our broader trend bias is negative in the metal while below the 2nd square root relationship of the 2012 low at 1250
  • Gann support at 1206 is important, but only weakness below 1184 will confirm that the downtrend is resuming
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen early next week
  • A daily close over 1250 will turn us positive on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being square here, but will look to go long following a break of 1250.
