Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Watch Aussie Closely Here

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD touched its highest level since October 2011 yesterday (during our key cycle turn window) and then reversed sharply
  • Our near-term trend bias is now lower in the Euro
  • The 2nd square root realtionship of the year’s high at 1.3755 is a key downside pivot with weakness below this level needed to confirm that a more signfincant top is in place
  • A minor turn window is seen around the start of next week
  • Only a move through 1.3940 would turn us positive on the Euro again

EUR/USD Strategy: Like selling on strength over the next few days.

Price & Time: Watch Aussie Closely Here

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD advance from last week’s cycle turn window has found strong resistance at a Gann confluence between 1315/21
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher while over 1270
  • A move through 1321 is needed to re-instill upside momentum
  • A cycle turn window is seen around the middle of next week
  • Weakness below 1270 would turn us negative on the metal

XAU/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1270.

Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/USD

Price & Time: Watch Aussie Closely Here

The reversal last month in AUD/USD from the .9450 8th square root relationship of the year’s low came during a key cycle turn window as it occurred right around the 100% time extension of the 2008 to 2011 advance. In our view this increases the odds of a more important top. Another time extension (100%) related to the 2Q13 and 3Q13 highs is in play over the next couple of days. A failure in the Aussie during this key cyclical period would bolster our broader negative view and set the stage for a more serious decline in the weeks ahead. Last week’s low near .9200 is an important downside pivot with weakness below this level needed to confirm that a more important peak is indeed in place. A move through .9450 on a closing basis would completely undermine this negative cyclical view.
