Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Key Couple of Days for USD/CAD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY closed above the 101.80 2x1 Gann angle line of the year’s high on Friday (the first time since early April)
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while over 101.05
  • A daily close over 102.25 is needed to confirm the start of a more serious advance
  • A minor cycle turn window is eyed mid-week
  • Weakness below 101.05 would undermine the burgeoning positive technical structure

USD/JPY Strategy: Like buying USD/JPY on a move through 102.25.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

Price & Time: Key Couple of Days for USD/CAD

We should learn a lot about the true intentions of the current move higher in USD/CAD over the next day or two. Our cyclical analysis suggests that if the rebound off the key support confluence area around 1.0650 has just been corrective then the exchange rate should turn back down around this time. Interestingly (as the chart above shows) this key moment in time is occurring right around an almost equally important price zone as the 200-day moving average, 2nd square root relationship of the month-to-date low, 1x1 Gann angle line of the year’s high and 61.8% retracement of the June decline all converge around 1.0820/30. If the pair is turning back down then these levels should probably hold. Strength through them (especially after Tuesday) would signal the move higher in USD/CAD has a lot more to run.
