Price & Time: Too Much "Hope" in USD/JPY?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD remains in a tight range below the 78.6% retracement of the March/April near 1.3900
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the Euro while over 1.3730
  • A move through 1.3900 is needed to trigger a new leg higher
  • Today and the middle of next week are important potential turn windows in the rate
  • A daily close under 1.3730 would turn us negative on the Euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the long side while 1.3730 holds.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Too Much "Hope" in USD/JPY?

USD/JPY found support at the beginning of the month near the 4th square root relationship of the year’s high in the 101.35 area. The recovery that has followed has been steady but has made little real upside progress as the exchange rate remains in the middle of its 3-month range. Interestingly despite this lack of progress on the upside, sentiment towards the Yen has fallen dramatically with the Daily Sentiment Index (DSI) touching just 13% bulls on Monday. Usually such extremes in sentiment are witnessed after powerful trends not minor recoveries like we have seen in USD/JPY over the past few weeks. Such conviction suggests to us that USD/JPY is vulnerable to a downside break in May. The first half of next week looks significant from a cyclical perspective and a high in USD/JPY is favored around this time.
