Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_JAN_28_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Moment of Truth Coming Up for the Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY continued higher on Tuesday from the reversal seen during Monday’s cycle turn window
  • Our near-term trend bias remains lower in the exchange rate while below 103.75
  • The 102.40 level is interim support, but a daily close below the 38% retracement of the October to January advance near 102.00 is required to signal a resumption of the broader move lower
  • A minor turn window is seen at the end of the week
  • A close over 103.75 would shift our near-term trend bias to positive

USD/JPY Strategy: Like only reduced short positions while below 103.75.

Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

PT_JAN_28_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Moment of Truth Coming Up for the Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD failed on Monday from just above the 38% retracement of the August to December decline at 1276
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in Gold while over the 50% retracement of the December/January range at 1229
  • A cluster of Fibonacci and Gann resistance between 1276 and 1291 needs to be overcome to setup a more signficant move higher
  • The end of the week is a minor cycle turn window
  • Only a daily close below 1229 would turn us negative on the metal

XAU/USD Strategy: Like buying into weakness againt 1229.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

PT_JAN_28_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Moment of Truth Coming Up for the Euro

Last week we wrote that EUR/USD was entering a short-term positive cyclical period. With the exception of last Thursday’s price action the move higher has been fairly unimpressive which suggests the reprieve is likely only a correction within the budding downtrend. The second half of this week is a clear cycle turn window where the downtrend could try to re-assert itself. Any traction below the 3rd square root relationship of the 2013 high at 1.3540 during this time would be a clear sign that another important leg lower is unfolding. With important event risk in the form of the FOMC decision on Wednesday we cannot discount a final attempt higher, but only aggressive strength through 1.3775 would turn the broader cyclical outlook positive.
