Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Gold What Now?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD touched a new multi-month low on Thursday before finding support at the 127% extension of the April-May advance near 1.3590
  • Our near-term trend bias remains lower in in the euro while under 1.3675
  • Interim support remains at 1.3590 ahead of major potential reaction levels between 1.3565 and 1.3520
  • A turn window of some significance is eyed early next week
  • A daily close over 1.3675 will shift our near-term trend bias to positive

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below 1.3675, but positions should be reduced significantly (ie. take profits) heading into the turn window next week.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/CAD

Price & Time: Gold What Now?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/CAD has come under steady pressure following last week’s failure to close over the 1st square root relationship of the year’s low near 1.0915
  • The short-term trend bias is lower in Funds while under 1.0915
  • A Fibonacci support cluster near 1.0800 remains an important downside pivot with traction under this zone needed to confirm that a more important decline is indeed underway
  • The next important cyclical turn period looks to be around the middle of next month
  • Only a daily close over 1.0915 would turn us positive on USD/CAD

USD/CAD Strategy: Like the short side while under 1.0915.

Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

Price & Time: Gold What Now?

Our fears were realized in Gold (See Gold Gearing Up For A Powerful Move) as the metal came under aggressive downside pressure yet again on an option expiration day. The move through the late April low at 1268 has eliminated a major element of “time support” and turns our focus and attention generally lower in the metal into the next big cycle turn window which we see around the middle of next month (though there is a minor turn eyed next week). The 4th square root relationship of the year’s high comes into play at 1244 and looks to be the next important support area ahead of a major action/reaction zone between 1220/10. It would take a daily settlement in XAU/USD back over the 50% retracement of the December to March range near 1285 to warn that the near-term negative dynamics have truly changed.
