Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Key Levels to Watch After NFP

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has crawled higher since finding support at the 4th square root relationship of the year’s low near 101.35 early last month
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower while below 103.10
  • A move under 101.35 is required to trigger a more important decline
  • The first half of next week is an important cycle turn window for the exchange rate
  • A daily close over 103.10 would shift the near-term trend bias higher

USD/JPY Strategy: Square, but may look to get short early next week.

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Key Levels to Watch After NFP

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD remains in a narrow range below the 78.6% retracement of the March to April decline near 1.3900
  • Our near-term trend bias higher in the Euro while over 1.3730
  • A push through 1.3900 is needed to trigger a new leg higher, but traction over 1.3970 is really required to confirm any sort of meaningful strength
  • A cycle turn window of some importance is seen next week
  • A move under the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3730 will turn us negative on the Euro

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

Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/NZD

Price & Time: Key Levels to Watch After NFP

AUD/NZD has come under steady pressure since Tuesday’s ‘inside day’ around the Pi cycle turn window we highlighted on Monday. The topping pattern was further bolstered by a head & shoulders on the daily. A Fibonacci confluence between 1.0665 and 1.0645 is the next big pivot level with a break under this zone needed to confirm that a more important top is in place. Only a daily close over 1.0830 would invalidate the negative technical picture and refocus higher.
