Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has come under steady pressure since failing at the 103.75 3rd square root relationship of the year’s low at the beginning of the month
  • A close below 101.35 will turn us negative on the rate
  • A move through 102.75 is desperately needed to restore some upside momentum
  • The end of the week is a minor cycle turn window

USD/JPY Strategy: Clinging to reduced longs while above 101.35.

Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

PT_MAR_18_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: USD/CAD Headed Higher Again or Rolling Over?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD touched its highest level since early September yesterday before failing just shy of the 6th square root relationship of the 2013 low near 1394
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in Gold while over 1349
  • A close over 1395 is needed to signal that the metal has weathered the “cyclical storm” and is headed higher again
  • A long-term cycle turn window ends today
  • A daily close below 1349 will turn us negative on Gold

XAU/USD Strategy: Yesterday’s outside range day on a key day of the turn window warns of a reversal. Will exit remaining long position if 1349 breaks.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

A few interesting cyclical relationships converge over the next few days in USD/CAD. As such, we favor a low of some sort developing during this time, but this is contingent upon any remaining weakness staying above the February closing low at 1.0940 and ideally the closer support level at 1.1010. The 1st square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.1125 is an important near-term pivot and a clear move through it is needed to confirm that a low is indeed in place. This would likely set up a new leg higher in Funds. Unexpected aggressive weakness below 1.0940 would undermine the case for positive resolution of the multi-week consolidation and risk triggering a more immediate and aggressive decline.
