  • EUR/USD remains in a sideways to higher range

Price & Time Analysis: AUD/USD

Price & Time: Where Are the Make or Break Levels in the Yen?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD traded to its highest level in three months today before reversing sharply lower from the 8th square root relationship of the year’s low at .9560
  • Our near-term trend bias is now lower in the Aussie
  • Last week’s closing low at .9345 is now a critical pivot with weakness below needed to confirm the start of a more meaningful move lower
  • A minor cycle turn window is eyed early next week
  • A daily close over .9460 would turn us bullish on the Aussie

AUD/USD Strategy: Like selling on strength against .9460

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Where Are the Make or Break Levels in the Yen?

USD/JPY is testing multi-week lows this morning and things are getting interesting in the exchange rate or are they? A charting method designed to filter out as much noise as possible is Point & Figure. The 3-box/30 pip reversal chart (box size=10 pips) in USD/JPY highlights the absolute lack of volatility in the rate this year very well. From this perspective we still have a ways to go to get to make or a break levels as it would take a move to 100.70 to signal any real breakdown. On the top side the 102.80 is a clear congestion area, but the P&F methodology suggests that a move over 103.40 (trendline) is really needed to signal a resumption of the long-term uptrend. Our cyclical work suggests that USD/JPY is in the latter stages of this consolidation and we think is should ultimately resolve itself in a move higher. However, a final low could still be a week or two away and we like preserving mental capital and waiting for at least 102.80 to get paid before positioning. Under 100.70 and all near-term bets are off.
