Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD has moved steadily higher since finding support last week just under the 50% retracement of the December/March advance at 1285

  • Interim support is seen around 1300, but weakness under 1285 is required to signal a resumption of the medium-term downtrend
  • This week is an important cycle turn window
  • A daily close over 1335 will turn us positive on Gold

XAU/USD Strategy: Reduced short positions favored while below 1335.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

PT_APR_10_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: USD/JPY Flirting With Danger

USD/JPY has come under steady pressure since failing at the top end of a rising trend channel near 104.00 last week. The exchange rate is now closing in on key support at 101.35, which is the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high. This level has proven to be formidable over the past couple of months as the exchange rate has only settled below it once since early February. Our big concern is that the failure around the start of the year at the long-term Fibonacci confluence in the 105.50 area was just the start of a more important and complex corrective process. Weakness below 101.35 and 100.75 in the days would be a very strong sign that a new leg lower of this process is unfolding. A minor cycle turn window is seen today, but the next truly important cyclical period looks to be the second half of NEXT week. A high during this time would be a very negative development. Only strength back over 103.35 relieves the immediate downside pressure.
