Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Do or Die for Crude Oil?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY tested the 2x1 Gann angle line of the year’s high near 102.20 last week, but could not close above
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in USD/JPY while above last week’s low near 101.20
  • A move through 102.20 is needed to set up a test of a critical pivot near 102.80
  • An important cycle turn window is seen in a couple of weeks
  • A move below 101.20 will re-focus lower in USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Flat, but looking to accumulate over the next couple of weeks.

Focus Chart of the Day: CRUDE

Price & Time: Do or Die for Crude Oil?

We have been negative on Crude since the important cycle turn window that we highlighted around the end of June (read HERE). A steady decline has followed in the commodity since then, but admittedly it has been far from impulsive. Another cycle turn window of importance is seen over the next day or so and with the overbought condition now fully worked off we are on the lookout for possible resumption of the broader underlying uptrend. A move back through 104.10 is needed to provide initial confirmation of such a renewed move higher. Failure to register a turn in the next day or so would be an extremely negative development for the commodity and set the stage for another leg lower in the weeks ahead. New trend lows in Crude after Thursday of this week would seriously undermine the potential for an immediate uptrend resumption.
