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.

  • 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.
