Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: In Search of A USD Correction

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY touched its highest level in almost four months last week before encountering resistance near the 50% retracement of the year’s range in the 103.10 area
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while over 101.50
  • A daily close over the 61.8% retracement of the April/May decline at 102.85 is needed to confirm a resumption of the trend
  • A very minor cycle turn window is eyed mid-week
  • A move under 101.50 would turn us negative on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: We like the long side while over 101.50.

Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Price & Time: In Search of A USD Correction

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD has come under steady pressure over the past month or so
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the metal while under 1300
  • A vital support area is eyed between 1280 and 1262 and a close beneath the latter is really needed to signal that a more important decline is unfolding
  • An important cycle turn window is seen this week
  • A push back over 1300 would turn us positive on the metal

XAU/USD Strategy: Square into the turn window, but a move over 1300 would get us long.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: In Search of A USD Correction

The move lower in EUR/USD over the past few months has been impressive. On Wednesday the euro touched the 50% retracement (1.3365) of the advance off last year’s April low before rebounding. Several cyclical methodologies suggest a turn higher should be seen this week (or at least attempted) which should lead to healthy counter-trend recovery through much August. Some final weakness over the next few days would not surprise, but we suspect that the 1.3365 level will probably hold - at least on a closing basis. A move through 1.3485 should be enough to confirm that a low of some kind is in place while new trend lows after Thursday would warn our budding positive view on the euro is wrong.
