Weekly Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Weekly Price & Time: USD/JPY Rebounds From Bottom of Multi-Month Range

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has come under steady downside pressure since peaking during an important cycle turn window at the start of the month near 1.4000
  • Our broader bias is negative on the Euro while below 1.3825
  • A close under the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3640 is needed to confirm that a new leg lower is underway
  • The next important cycle turn window is seen early next month in the euro
  • Only traction over 1.3825 turns our broader outlook positive

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while under 1.3970

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Weekly Price & Time: USD/JPY Rebounds From Bottom of Multi-Month Range

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY touched its lowest level since early February this week before rebounding aggressively
  • Our broader bias is negative in the rate while below 104.40
  • A weekly close under 101.35 will signal a resumption of the broader decline
  • The end of the month is the next important cycle turn window for the exchange rate
  • 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.
