Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD traded to its highest levels since the start of the year this week before running into resistance at the 1st square root relationship of the 2013 high at 1.3775
  • Our trend bias is lower, however, 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 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 while under 1.3800.

Weekly_Price__Time_Gold_Closing_In_On_Key_Retracement_body_Picture_2.png, Weekly Price & Time: Gold Closing In On Key Retracement

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY traded to its highest level since late January this week
  • Our broader bias is negative in the rate while below 104.40
  • The 100.80 level remains a key downside pivot that needs to be breached soon on a daily close to undermine the positive cyclicality of the early February low
  • The middle of next week is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • 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 touched its highest leve in four months this week before stalling just ahead of the 61.8% retracement of the August to December decline at 1336
  • Our broader trend bias remains positive in the metal while above the 1x2 Gann angle line of the 2013 closing low now near 1280
  • The 1336 level is now key resistance with a move over this level needed to signal that a new leg higher is underway
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen early next week
  • A daily close under 1280 would turn us negative on Gold

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being long while over 1280.
