  • 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 1.3755
  • The 1.3520/65 area looks to be the next important support zone in the exchange rate

Weekly Price & Time: Gold Breaks From Multi-Week Range

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY is in consolidation mode by the 200-day moving average
  • 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
  • The start of June is an 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.
