Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: USD/JPY Change in Behaviour

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD traded to its lowest level in over two years last week before rebounding aggressively yesterday from just above 1.2500
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower while below the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s low near 1.2725
  • Interim support is eyed at 1.2500, but the next key downside attraction looks to be the 78.6% retracement of the 2012/2014 range near 1.2455
  • A turn window of some importantance is eyed later this week
  • A close over 1.2725 would turn us positive on the euro

USD/JPY Strategy: Like holding reduced long short positions while below 1.2725

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: USD/JPY Change in Behaviour

USD/JPY bounced smartly off the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high near 108.00 last week. The 2nd square root relationship is critical in the way we look at things as corrections tend to get sloppy and much more complex below this level. While USD/JPY remains above 108.00 we have to favor the upside, but the rate’s failure to push to new highs following the recovery off 108.00 is more than a little concerning as the psychology is now in place for some kind of top. A close over 109.75 or a push through 110.10 is needed to alleviate our concerns while a break under 108.00 would turn us overtly negative on the pair.
