Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

PT_APR_8_body_Picture_3.png, Price & Time: USD & Stocks Losing Luster

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD closed back over the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high near 1.3730 on Monday
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the Euro while below 1.3820
  • Weakness under the 127% extension of the late March/early April recovery at 1.3670 needs to be breached to signal a resumption of the broader decline
  • A key cycle turn window is seen later this week
  • A move over 1.3820 would turn us positive on the Euro

EUR/USD Strategy: The turn window this week looks important for the Euro. Like only reduced short positions in the exchange rate while below 1.3820.

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/CAD broke under the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.0960 today to trade at its lowest level since mid-February
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in Funds while under 1.1015

  • An important cycle turn window is seen next week
  • Strength back over 1.1015 would turn us positive on USD/CAD

USD/CAD Strategy: We like the short side while below 1.1015.

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

PT_APR_8_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: USD & Stocks Losing Luster

The S&P 500 failed to get above 1900. This would have, in our view, eliminated much of the risk of a false upside break. The weakness over the past few days is obviously very concerning, but from a technical & cyclical point of view 1830 remains the key level to watch. The middle of March was significant for the index as a variety of different cyclical relationships converged during this time. The March low in the index made near 1830 is thus very significant and should not be breached if the S&P 500 is still in the midst of a strong uptrend. Any weakness under 1830 in the days ahead would remove this “time support” element in the index and set up a potentially much more important decline for equities. Further weakness that holds above 1830 before reversing would be a very positive development for the S&P 500.
