Talking Points

  • Important timing surrounds recent extremes in the S&P 500, big move coming?
  • Important top in EUR/USD?
  • Gold nearing key support, reaction there should be very telling

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

PT_MAR_21_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: Big High in 'Risk' or Just More of the Same?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has come under steady pressure over the past couple of days following last week’s failed attemp to overcome key Fibonacci resistance at 1.3970
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the Euro while below 1.3930
  • The 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3730 remains a key downside support
  • A cycle turn window is seen next week
  • Only aggressive strength back over the year’s closing high at 1.3930 would turn us positive again on the Euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Look to sell the Euro into strength.

Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD reversed sharply during a key cycle turn window at the start of the week from just above the 6th square root relationship of the 2013 low
  • Our near-term trend bias is now lower in the metal following the breach of support near 1350
  • A convergence of various Fibonacci and Gann levels between 1310/18 makes this a critical support with traction below needed to confirm that a more important move lower is unfolding
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen around the middle of the week
  • A daily close back over 1380 would turn us positive on the metal

XAU/USD Strategy: We like selling on strength over the next few days against 1380.

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

PT_MAR_21_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Big High in 'Risk' or Just More of the Same?

The S&P 500 is at an important inflection point. The high on March 7th just shy of 1890 had strong timing as it fell on the 5-year anniversary window of the 2009 low. Anniversaries are always potentially important for students of Gann as reversals in trend seem to be more prevalent around them. The 60-month and a day duration of the move higher is an eerie mirror image of the last bull cycle which started on October 10, 2002 and ended on October 11, 2007. A possible measured move in time. The high at the beginning of the month also has strong price symmetry as from low to high the SPX has rallied 182% (rounding down). This is 3.14 (Pi) times the 2007-2009 decline of 58%. Confusing the picture is the price action from Monday as the index reversed sharply from 1830 during a “Pi cycle” turn window (8.6 months x 7) related to the 2009 low. Is the move higher over the past few days a resumption of the trend or just a re-test of the high before heading lower again? With strong timing at both extremes all we can do is observe and await a clear break for a directional signal.
