Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD rebounded yesterday from the 2nd square root relationship of the year-to-date high near 1.6340
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative on Cable while below 1.6600
  • The 1.6340 level remains an important near-term pivot with weakness below needed to trigger a more material move lower
  • Minor cycle turn windows are seen around the middle of this week and early next week
  • Only a daily close over 1.6600 would turn us positive on the Pound

GBP/USD Strategy: Like selling Cable into strength.

Price & Time Analysis: AUD/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD has moved only modestly higher since reversing from the 9th square root relationship of the October high near .8860 last week
  • However, Monday’s close over .8960 has shifted our near-term trend bias to higher
  • The .8960 remains an important near-term pivot with traction over this level exposing a key Gann convergnece near .9030/60
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen over the next couple of days
  • A daily close under .8860 is required to shift our trend bias back to negative in the Aussie

AUD/USD Strategy: Like the short side while under 1243.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

The extreme one way sentiment in USD/JPY (DSI touched just 7% bulls in the Yen on December 27th) finally caught up with it last week as the exchange rate failed just shy of a key long-term retracement at 105.55. The correction that followed has been relatively mild so far and it is still up in the air as to whether this move lower is just a correction of an overbought condition or the start of a more meaningful reversal lower. A Gann line related to the 2011 low comes into play around 103.90 (Monday’s low) while the 2nd square root relationship of the year-to-date high is near 103.35. These two levels look critical over the next few days. Any material weakness below the latter will turn the technical outlook much more negative. A move back over 105.00 is needed to relieve immediate downside pressures, but only traction over 105.55 signals the start of another material leg higher.
