Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has traded steadily higher since finding support earlier in the month at the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high near 101.35
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower while under 103.10
  • Weakness under 101.35 is needed to signal the start of a more important decline
  • A cycle turn window of some importance is seen early next week
  • A breach of 103.10 would turn the near-term trend bias positive

USD/JPY Strategy: Like being square for a few days.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD touched its highest level since late 2009 on Monday before finding resistance at the 17th square root relationship of last year’s low in the 1.6850 area
  • Our near-term trend bias remains higher in Cable while over 1.6655
  • A daily close over 1.6850 is required to spark the next leg higher in the Pound
  • An important cycle turn window is eyed later next week
  • Weakness under 1.6655 would turn us negative on GBP/USD

GBP/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1.6655.

Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

The reversal last week in Gold off 1270 on option expiration day was quite dramatic. There is a strong chance it marked an important low as it occurred right on the 161.8% time extension of the June and December 2013 lows. Such “loud” reversals on or around turn dates usually prove important. A minor cyclical turn window is eyed around the end of the week, but any weakness into this timeframe is probably only some sort of re-test of last week’s low. A move through last week’s high near 1306 would provide initial confirmation of a low, but strength over the month-to-date high at 1331 is really needed to trigger a more important move higher. Any unexpected aggressive weakness after Monday of next week below 1270 would turn the cyclical and technical picture very negative.
