Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD recovery stalled near the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s low near 1.1415 on Tuesday
  • Our near-term trend bias remains positive on the euro while above 1.1210
  • A push above the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s low at 1.1415 is needed to set off a new leg higher
  • A minor turn window is seen on Friday
  • A close under 1.1210 would turn us negative on the euro again

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1.1210.

Focus Chart of the Day: NZD/USD

The range break we were looking for in NZD/USD (Read HERE) has played out rather nicely with exchange rate losing almost 4 big figures over the past week. A big part of our reasoning for turning negative on NZD was the sentiment picture as the Daily Sentiment Index early last week was perfectly neutral at 50% bulls. Such neutral sentiment is pretty typical when markets settle into clear defined ranges as the “range trading” mentality takes over. However, neutral or positive sentiment at range lows also shows that a large segment of the market is not positioned or expecting a break of the range and this is often times precisely the “fuel” that triggers a range expansion. This certainly looks to have been the case with the Kiwi. A general rule of thumb with range breaks is that they should initially extend about the height of the range. That would be about .7180.
