Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_APR_1_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: GBP/USD What Now?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has moved steadily higher over the past few days to test the 2nd square root realtionship of the year’s high at 103.40
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while over 101.35
  • The 3rd square root relationship of the year’s low at 103.75 is critical near-term resistance with traction over this level needed to signal that the rate has broken out of its multi-month consolidation
  • A very minor cycle turn window is seen today
  • Interim support is eyed at 102.35, but only a move under 101.35 would turn us negative

USD/JPY Strategy: We like the long side while over 101.35.

Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

PT_APR_1_body_Picture_2.png, Price & Time: GBP/USD What Now?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD has come under further pressure on Tuesday to trade at its lowest level since early February
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in Gold while below 1336
  • The 50% retracement of the December/March advance at 1285 is key support with a daily close below opening the way for a much deeper decline
  • An important cycle turn window is seen starting around the end of the week and extending into the middle of next week
  • A move back over 1336 would turn us positive again on the metal

XAU/USD Strategy: We like the short side while below 1336.

Focus Chart of the Day: GBP/USD

PT_APR_1_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: GBP/USD What Now?

The move lower we have been looking for in GBP/USD has so far proven elusive. Monday’s high, however, did come around the 1.6685 61.8% retracement of the mid-February/March range and there is a chance that it marks some sort of secondary top in the exchange rate. The next few hours are critical. Follow on weakness below 1.6600 is now needed to confirm a reversal and set the stage for a stronger move lower in the days ahead. With the cyclical turn period we highlighted last week ending yesterday, any strength back through 1.6685 by more than a few pips would completely negate the potential negative cyclicality that we see at work and re-focus attention higher.
