Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Caution Required in the Kiwi Over the Next Few Days

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY found resistance earlier in the week at the 4x1 Gann angle line of the year-to-date low in the 102.15 area
  • Our near-term trend bias remains lower in USD/JPY while below 102.80
  • The 101.35 4th square root relationship of the year’s high remains a major downside pivot with a daily close under this level required to signal the start of a more meaningful decline
  • An important cycle turn window is eyed at the start of June
  • A daily close over 102.80 would shift our near-term trend bias positive.

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the short side while below 102.80 and adding on a daily close below 101.35.

Price & Time Analysis: S&P 500

Price & Time: Caution Required in the Kiwi Over the Next Few Days

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • SPX recorded yet another new all-time high on Wednesday
  • The short-term trend bias is positive on the index while above 1860
  • Major Gann resistance is seen near 1920 and a multi-day close over this level is needed to signal that some sort of blow off move higher is underway
  • The first part of June looks important for the index from a Gann timing perspective and at least a minor reversal looks probable around this time
  • Aggressive weakness under 1860 is needed turn the trend bias lower, but weakness under 1899 would warn a minor top is in place

SPX Strategy: Like reducing longs next week. 1920 area looks very important.

Focus Chart of the Day: NZD/USD

Price & Time: Caution Required in the Kiwi Over the Next Few Days

NZD/USD has embarked on a steady decline since peaking out at the beginning of the month near important Gann resistance at .8770 (8th square root relationship of the year-to-date low). On Wednesday the exchange rate finally closed below the late April .8515 low triggering a double top type pattern on the daily charts. According to classic technical analysis this is the time to sell. Cyclical analysis paints a different picture, however, as the next couple of days look quite important from a timing perspective. From where we stand the rate actually looks quite vulnerable to a short-term reversal which at a minimum should give better levels to sell next month. New trend lows in the Bird after Monday would nullify this near-term positive outlook.
