Price & Time: Situation Critical For The Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY is in consolidation mode below the trendline connecting the 2002 and 2007 peaks in the 109.50 area
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher while over 107.35
  • A move through 109.50 is needed to set of the next leg higher in the rate

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Situation Critical For The Euro

EUR/USD has come under renewed pressure over the past few sessions to record its lowest level since November of 2012. In a strange way this is precisely what I want to see heading into the key cyclical period I have highlighted over the next few days as there is little ambiguity in what to look for. Almost like clockwork as the euro has begun to break down into this key period articles have begun to appear in the financial press explaining why the euro is such a clear sell.
