Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD rebound from last week off key Gann support failed from just above the 38% retracement of the year’s range
  • Our trend bias is lower in the Euro while below the 2013 closing high near 1.3800
  • The 1.3540 area remains key support, with weakness below needed to signal a broader downside resumption
  • The latter half of the month is the next medium-term cycle turn window
  • Only a daily close back over 1.3800 would turn us positive on the Euro again

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side under 1.3800.

  • USD/JPY came under further pressure this past week and traded to its lowest level in over three weeks before rebounding sharply from the 161.8% projection of the early January decline at 102.90
  • 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
  • The latter part of next week is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • A weekly close below the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 103.35 will turn us negative on the exchange rate

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Like being long against 103.35, but should be reduced.
