Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_Jan_14_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Important Couple of Days Coming Up for AUD/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY came under heavy downside pressure on Tuesday and close below the 2nd square root relationship of the year-to-date high at 103.35
  • Our near-term trend bias is now lower in USD/JPY and will remain so while below 104.80
  • The 161.8% projection of the early January decline at 102.85 acted as support on Monday and weakness below this level is now needed to confirm a resumption of the near-term decline
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen around the latter part of the week
  • Only a close over 104.85 would turn us positive on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Sell into strength while below 103.80

Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/USD

PT_Jan_14_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Important Couple of Days Coming Up for AUD/USD

We were planning on writing today about the medium-term cycle turn window in AUD/USD over the next couple of days, but the market seems to have beat us to the punch. The resistance area at .9040/60 where Aussie has seemingly failed is potentially important as it marks a convergence of several Gann levels. Just how important this turn proves to be will depend heavily on the follow through over the next few days. The 8th square root relationship of the 4th quarter high at .8960 is an important near-term pivot ahead of critical support at .8860. Traction below the latter would confirm a broader downside resumption. There is a chance that this latest decline is only a minor reprieve before heading higher again, but only a daily close over .9060 negates the negative cyclicality.
