Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: USD/JPY Range Break 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
  • Weakness under 1.3730 is needed to re-instill downside momentum
  • A cycle turn window is eyed next week
  • Only traction 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

Price & Time: USD/JPY Range Break Ahead?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY remains in a broad multi-month 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
  • An important cycle turn window is eyed next week
  • 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.

Price & Time: USD/JPY Range Break Ahead?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD came under pressure over the past week, but held above last week’s low
  • We are negative on the metal while below 1306
  • The 1280 area is key support with a weekly close below needed to signal a resumption of the downtrend
  • A turn window of some importance is seen here
  • A daily close over 1306 will turn us positive on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Square here, my look to go long on a close over 1306.
