Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

WPT_FEB_7_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Important Time For USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD traded to a new multi-week low earlier this week before rebounding off the 1x1 Gann angle line of the 2013 low near 1.3500
  • Our trend bias is lower in the Euro while below the 2013 closing high near 1.3800
  • The 1.3500 area remains a key downside pivot with weakness below needed to signal a resumption of the broader decline
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen early 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 while under 1.3800.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

WPT_FEB_7_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Important Time For USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY fell to its lowest level since late November earlier this week before finding support at the 100.80 200% extension of the mid-January advance
  • Our broader bias is now negative in the rate while below 104.40
  • The 100.80 level is now a key pivot that needs to be breached soon on a daily close to undermine the potential positive cyclicality of this week
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen early next week
  • A weekly close back over 104.40 would turn us positive again on USD/JPY

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: We like the short side in USD/JPY while below 104.40.

  • XAU/USD remains in consolidation mode after last week’s failure near the 38% retracement of the August to January decline near 1276
  • Our broader trend bias remains positive in the metal while above the 1x1 Gann angle line of the 2013 closing low near 1223
  • A convergence of Gann and Fibonacci levels between 1276 and 1286 needs to be overcome to signal the next leg higher
  • A cycle turn window is seen around the second half of the month
  • A daily close under 1223 would turn us negative on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being long while over 1223.
