Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Key Week For The Euro In More Ways Than One

Whenever fundamental catalysts coincide with cyclical timing relationships it usually is a strong sign that something meaningful is about to happen in a market. On Thursday of this week we have the much anticipated ECB decision where some form of quantitative easing/extraordinary policy is expected to be announced. A mere three days later we have the Greek elections and the strong possibility that an anti-Eurozone political party will gain control of parliament. Right in between these two events we have an important cyclical relationship in EUR/USD as it will be exactly 8.6 months from the 2014 high which was sparked on the day of the ECB meeting in May. As regular readers know, the 8.6 month frequency is one of the more important and reliable cyclical relationships we follow. Heading into 8.6 month turn windows we usually look for strong trends to reverse in some manner. In this case, the euro is clearly trending and perhaps dangerously so as sentiment and positioning measures remain right near historical extremes. If we are going to get a counter-trend move of any significance in EUR/USD that washes out some of the excess speculation then we would expect it to materialize sometime around this key window (Friday to Tuesday).
