Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: USD/JPY the Coiled Spring?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has come under further pressure to touch its lowest level since late September
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the euro while below 1.3430
  • The 6th square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3280 is a key pivot with a daily close below needed to confirm that a new leg lower is underway
  • A cycle turn window is eyed on Thursday
  • A move over 1.3430 would turn us positive on the euro

EUR/USD Strategy: We like holding only reduced short positions while below 1.3430.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: USD/JPY the Coiled Spring?

Our bullish view on USD/JPY is finally starting to pay off. On Tuesday the exchange rate managed to close above the 101.75/85 resistance zone which has proven rather sticky for quite some time. The real question though is this the start of a bona fide run higher or just another false start like in early April? Given the compression in the exchange rate since over the past four months we favor the former as we view a long consolidation like that much like a tightly coiled spring. When it releases it tends to do so explosively. How USD/JPY reacts near 103.40 and 103.90 over the next day or so should clue us in to which scenario is unfolding as an easy push through these important resistance levels would indicate a clear change in the market’s behavior and give us more confidence that a trend is indeed developing. Failure to easily breach these levels, on the other hand, could mark the top of a range.
