  • The rest of the New York trading session is absent major scheduled event risk with US markets closed for the Martin Luther King Jr holiday. There is always a risk of unscheduled developments

  • Despite China's better-than-expected 6.5% 4Q GDP report, $USDCNH is still up on the day. There is strong external influence on this rate, but Dollar still exerts the greater pressure. If it breaks 6.50 and Biden keeps pressure on China trade, I'll be watching https://t.co/5W5tcfeTZ5

  • The Capitol of the United States has been temporarily shut down ahead of President-Elect Biden's inauguration out of caution
  • Another Dollar pair on my radar is $USDCHF. Its 20-day day correlation coefficient to EURUSD is -0.90 (very strong negative). If the latter's break is sustained, both have appeal. If it stalls (soon), USDCHF is still abiding its resistance which supports establishing levels https://t.co/Pcre3xCbYd

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD traded to its highest level in almost two and a half years this week
  • A weekly close above the 2013 closing high near 1.3800 will shift our trend bias to positive
  • A convergence of the 50% retracement of the 2008/2010 decline and the 127% extension of the 1Q13 move lower near 1.3955/70 is important resistance and needs to be convincingly overcome to signal the ‘all clear’ for a more important run higher
  • The next cycle turn window of importance is seen around the middle of March

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Looking to buy on weakness.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY traded at its highest level in over a month on Friday
  • Our broader bias is negative in the rate while below 104.40
  • The 101.35 level is a key downside pivot that needs to be broken in order to re-instill downside momentum
  • A cycle turn window is seen around the middle of the month
  • A weekly close back over 104.40 would turn us positive again on USD/JPY

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: We like tactical short positions in USD/JPY while below 104.40 on a weekly close basis.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD touched its highest level since late October this week before running into resistance near the 2ndsquare root relationship of the August high near 1357
  • Our broader trend bias remains positive in the metal while above the 1x2 Gann angle line of the 2013 closing low now near 1300
  • The 1357 level is key resistance with a close over this level needed to signal that a more important move higher is unfolding
  • The middle of the month looks important for the metal from a cycle perspective with March 12th and 17th looking particularly key
  • A daily close under 1300 would turn us negative on Gold

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like being long while over 1300.
