Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_Feb_13_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Watching Risk Markets Closely Here

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY closed over the 3rdsquare root relationship of the year-to-date high on Tuesday
  • Our near-term trend bias is now higher in the exchange rate
  • The 2nd square root relationship of the year’s low at 102.75 is critical resistance that needs to be overcome soon to signal that a more important move higher is taking hold
  • A cycle turn window is seen around the middle of next week
  • A daily close below the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high at 101.35 would turn us negative again on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like being square for the time being, but may look to buy a break of 102.75.

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

PT_Feb_13_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Watching Risk Markets Closely Here

The S&P 500 has rallied aggressively since reversing during last week’s cycle turn window. A move through 1850 would confirm the significance of last week’s low and set up a further push higher into the next turn date of importance in March and possibly even into 3Q14. Yesterday the index encountered good resistance near the 78.6% retracement of the year-to-date range at 1827. A retracement of the 80+ handle move over the last week seems natural. Such a decline could extend all the way to Gann support at 1780 without inflicting any real sort of technical damage. A move below 1780 on a daily close basis would begin to cloud the positive technical outlook, but only aggressive weakness below 1738 would completely undermine the positive technical structure. Such an occurrence would signal a major shift in the index’s behavior and set up a more important distribution phase. This is not our favored scenario – just yet.
