Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

PT_JAN_24_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: The Next Couple of Trading Days Are Critical For USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD reversed sharply from the 3rd square root relationship of the 2013 high on Thursday to trade at its highest level in three weeks
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the Euro while below the 2013 closing high near 1.3800
  • A close back under the 2nd square root relationship of the 2013 high at 1.3655 is needed re-instill downside momentum
  • A turn window is seen around the middle of next week
  • A close over 1.3800 would shift our near-term trend bias to positive

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while 1.3800 holds.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/CAD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/CAD touched its highest level since July of 2009 on Thursday before reversing sharply
  • Our near-term trend bias remains higher in USD/CAD while above 1.0960
  • The year-to-date high near 1.1170 is now a clear near-term upside pivot with strength above needed to prompt the next leg higher in Funds towards a Fibonacci attraction at 1.1235
  • The next important cycle turn window in USD/CAD is seen around the middle of February
  • On a daily close below the 2nd square root realtionship of the year’s high at 1.0960 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

USD/CAD Strategy: We like the long side while over 1.0960.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

PT_JAN_24_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: The Next Couple of Trading Days Are Critical For USD/JPY

The next couple of trading days are critical for USD/JPY from a short-term cyclical perspective. If the price action of the past couple of days has just been a shakeout of stale long positions then the exchange rate should turn up by the end of the day on Monday at the latest. If USD/JPY fails to mount a recovery during this turn window then it will send a powerful message to us that the medium-term trend has indeed changed and that a more serious decline is likely to follow. Key support is seen at the 38% retracement of the October to January advance near 102.00. Traction above the mid-January low of 102.85 would signal that the rate has turned.
