Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY is in consolidation mode above the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high at 101.35
  • A close below 101.35 will turn us negative on USD/JPY
  • A move back through 102.30/75 is needed to relieve some of the immediate downside pressure
  • The end of the week is a minor cycle turn window

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

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

PT_MAR_19_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: Jury Still Out on the Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD remains weak, but so has not breached key support at the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high around 1.6560
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in Cable while this level holds
  • A close over 1.6690 is needed restore some upside momentum in the exchange rate
  • An important cycle turn window is seen around the end of the month
  • A daily close below 1.6560 will turn us negative on the Pound

GBP/USD Strategy: Like small longs against 1.6560. May look to go short on a clear break of that level.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

PT_MAR_19_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Jury Still Out on the Euro

EUR/USD continues to threaten a break of 1.3970. This level is important resistance as it marks the 50% retracement of the 2008 to 2010 decline. A clear move through this barrier would be a positive development in the long-term as it would do some technical damage to the notion that the move higher since July 2012 has only been a correction within a primary downtrend. Time, however, is starting to run out for the single currency to accomplish this break as a few cyclical relationships are converging early next week. Failure to get through this resistance area before then or worse yet a break of it during this turn window (ie. a false break) would pave the way for an important reversal. 1.3830 is an important pivot and a daily close below this level during this time would confirm at least a near-term top.
