Price & Time: Euro Still A Sell On Rallies?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has been under steady pressure since failing at the start of the month near key Gann resistance in the 102.75 area
  • While below this level our near-term trend bias is lower
  • The 101.35 remains a key downside pivot with a daily close below needed to set off a more meanginful decline
  • Minor turn windows are seen Tuesday and Friday
  • A move over 102.75 would turn us positive on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the short side while below 102.75.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Euro Still A Sell On Rallies?

Square root relationships from important highs & lows are one of our preferred ways to identify potential inflection points in the currency market. For one reason or another 4th square relationships have a tendency to be especially important. Over the past week or so EUR/USD has found support right around the 4th square root relationship of the year-to-date high near 1.3520. Normally we would be looking for some kind of strong counter-trend move to develop off this level, but the cyclical outlook looks pretty clearly negative for another couple of weeks which should work against any material euro strength developing just yet. A daily close under 1.3520 later this week would confirm our negative cyclical bent and open the way for another leg lower in the exchange rate. A move over 1.3595 would make us doubt this negative cyclical view, but strength above 1.3675 is really needed to confirm a meaningful bottom in the euro.
