Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Cable Undercuts the 200-Day Moving Average

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY continues to edge higher off the 101.50 78.6% retracement of the July range
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 101.50
  • The 61.8% retracement of the April/May decline near 102.85 reamins an important upside pivot with a close over this level needed to confirm more serious move higher is underway
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen on Wednesday
  • A move under 101.50 would turn us negative on the rate

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

Focus Chart of the Day: GBP/USD

Price & Time: Cable Undercuts the 200-Day Moving Average

The price action in Cable has been very interesting over the past few days. On Thursday the pound reversed from the 200-day moving average near 1.6660 almost to the pip. A gap higher was then seen on Monday morning after newspaper comments from the head of the Bank of England over the weekend. This strength proved short-lived, however, as the gap has been filled this morning with GBP/USD falling sharply lower and below the 200-day MA for the first time in almost a year. This action is a little surprising. We say this because we have noticed over the years that currency rates that spend an extended period of time over the 200-day MA tend to find support on the first test of the moving average. We like giving the pound a little more room as there is a decent chance this is just a slight undercut of the 200-day MA and part of some sort of larger temporary bottoming process. Tuesday and Wednesday’s close should prove important in this regard as a failure to get back over 1.6660 would turn the medium-term picture even more negative and undermine further the potential for a correction before September.
