Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD recovered this week after finding support just below the 1.3540 3rd square root relationship of the 2013 high
  • 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 on a closing basis needed to signal a broader downside resumption
  • A cycle turn window is seen around the middle of next week
  • 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.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY broke below the year’s opening range this week and traded to its lowest level since early December
  • The close below 103.35 has shifted our broader trend bias to negative
  • The 38% retracement of the October to Janaury advance near 102.00 is a key downside pivot that must be surpassed in the next few days to trigger the next important leg lower
  • A turn window is seen today and Monday
  • A weekly close back over 104.85 is needed to shift the trend bias back to positive

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: We like selling USD/JPY on strength while below 104.85.

  • XAU/USD traded to its highest level since early November this past week before encountering resistance at at the 50% retracement of the October to December decline at 1270
  • Our broader trend bias remains positive in the metal while above the 1x1 Gann angle line of the 2013 closing low near 1213
  • A convergence of Gann and Fibonacci levels between 1270 and 1286 needs to be overcome to signal the next leg higher
  • A cycle turn window is seen today that could lead to some near-term weakness
  • A daily close back under 1213 would turn us negative on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being long while over 1213.
