Weekly Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Weekly Price & Time: Gold Turn Window Ahead

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has been stuck in a sideways to lower range since failing earlier in the month at the 78.6% retracement of the March/April range in the 1.3900 area
  • Our broader bias is negative on the Euro while below 1.3970
  • Back under 1.3730 is needed to re-instill downside momentum
  • A cycle turn window is eyed around the start of May
  • Only over 1.3970 turns our broader outlook positive

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: May look to sell against 1.3970.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Weekly Price & Time: Gold Turn Window Ahead

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY remains in a broad range
  • Our broader bias is negative in the rate while below 104.40
  • A close under 101.35 will signal a resumption of the broader decline
  • The first part of next week is a medium-term cycle turn window
  • Only strength over 104.40 will turn us positve on USD/JPY

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: We like tactical short positions in USD/JPY while below 104.40 on a weekly close basis.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Weekly Price & Time: Gold Turn Window Ahead

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD traded to its lowest level since early February this week before rebounding sharply from just below the 1x1 Gann angle line of the 2013 low near 1275
  • We are negative on the metal while below 1331
  • The 1275 area is key support with a weekly close below needed to signal a resumption of the downtrend
  • The next turn window of importance is around the middle of next week
  • A daily close over 1331 will turn us positive on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Like holding reduced short positions while below 1331.
