Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has moved steadily higher since rebounding off Fibonacci support near 118.00 on Tuesday
  • Our near-term trend bias remains lower in USD/JPY while below 120.80
  • A close under 118.50 is needed to confirm the start of a new leg lower in the rate
  • An important turn window is eyed Friday/early next week
  • A close over 120.80 would turn us positive on the dollar again

USD/JPY Strategy: Like selling on strength against 120.80.

Price & Time Analysis: S&P 500

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • S&P 500 has turned higher after testing key support around 2000 on Tuesday
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher while above 2000
  • The 1st square root relationship of the all-time high at 2046 is key near-term resistance with traction above needed to re-instill upside momentum
  • A minor turn window is seen on Friday
  • A close under 2000 would turn us negative on the index

S&P 500 Strategy: Like the long side while above 2000.

Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/USD

I often get comments from readers on my charts. Some like them, while others complain about how cluttered they are. I will readily admit that they are pretty cluttered, but it is clutter with a purpose. I believe wholeheartedly in the concept of confluence when analyzing the x-axis of time and the y-axis of price. The way I see things the more techniques I can find converging on a price point the better. Maintaining these charts can be quite tedious, however, and often times lines here and there will be overlooked and forgotten. Occasionally these oversights will re-appear and produce some interesting symmetry. Take the Aussie for example. Over the past few weeks the exchange rate has been banging around a median line (black line on chart) that extends all the way back to the early 2013 high! Then earlier this week the pair found support at a Gann line (blue line) related to you guessed it the 2013 high. As Gann would say the 2013 high certainly seems to be “vibrating” with price at the moment.
