Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: The Coiled Spring

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has fallen further this morning to test the 161.8% extension of the June/July advance at 1.3395
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the euro while below 1.3545
  • A daily close below 1.3395 area is needed to set off a more material move lower in the rate
  • A very minor cycle turn window is eyed today, but a more important one is expected around the middle of next week
  • A move over 1.3545 would turn us positive on the euro

EUR/USD Strategy: A low next week would not surprise. We like holding only a reduced short position while under 1.3545.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: The Coiled Spring

The spring is tightly coiled in USD/JPY heading into the key event risk of US GDP and the FOMC later today. For more than five months the exchange rate has been mired in a tight range above 100.75. Will the events later today be the catalyst(s) that prompt a break from this range or will they just lead to more disappointment and continuation of the range? It is very easy to get sucked into the hype surrounding such events. As such we try to tune out as much of it as possible and concentrate on price levels and reactions around them. On the topside key levels look to be 102.25/30 and then 102.85. A daily close over these levels (especially the latter) would be a strong signal that we are indeed getting a regime change and given the compression of the past few months a move higher could happen pretty fast. One potential problem to this scenario is that a lot of the Street seems to be expecting this break as evidenced by the steady rise over the past few days leading into it. A false break higher or the wrong data could force an aggressive unwind. This is not our favored scenario, but we need to be open to it. Under 101.05 would warn something more sinister is developing.
