Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price_Time_USDCHF_Low_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: USD/CHF Low?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY remains in consolidation mode below the 2nd square root relationship of the year-to-date low at 102.75
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in USD/JPY while above 101.35
  • A clear move through 102.75 is needed to trigger a more important advance in the exchange rate
  • An cycle turn window of some importance is seen over the next day or so
  • A daily close below the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high at 101.35 would turn us negative

USD/JPY Strategy: Square for the moment. Need to see the rate settle over 102.75 before committing to long positions.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CHF

Price_Time_USDCHF_Low_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: USD/CHF Low?

As we made mention on Monday, the next 24-36 hours or so look important for the Euro from a short-term cyclical perspective. This logic extends to USD/CHF as well as the exchange rate has some interesting Fibonacci time relationships of its own converging over the next day or so. A reversal of some kind looks possible during this time especially if the rate can continue to hold above key support near .8850 (2013 closing low). A settle over .8900 would be further evidence of at least a near-term bottom.
