Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Gold Advance Resuming?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY remains in consolidation mode above key support at 116.00/35
  • Our near-term trend bias remains positive while above 117.40 (closing basis)
  • Interim resistance is seen around 118.00, but traction over 118.85 is really needed to signal that a more important push higher is underway
  • A very minor turn window is seen tomorrow
  • A close under 117.40 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

USD/JPY Strategy: Square.

Price & Time Analysis: AUD/USD

Price & Time: Gold Advance Resuming?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD fell to its lowest level since May of 2009 earlier today
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative while below .7830
  • A move under Fibonacci supports between .7570 and .7605 will expose more important downside attractions in the low .7000’s
  • A minor cycle turn is eyed late this week ahead of a more important window next week
  • A close above .7830 would turn us positive on the Aussie.

AUD/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below .7830.

Focus Chart of the Day: GOLD

Price & Time: Gold Advance Resuming?

The advance in Gold stalled late last month near the 78.6% retracement of the July-November decline in the 1300 area. However, the weakness that has followed has taken a fairly corrective tone with the metal finding support last Thursday by the 38% retracement of the January range at 1250. Looking at some of the lower timeframes we can see a pretty clear inverse head & shoulders pattern shaping up (see hourly chart above) that suggests the medium-term uptrend in place since November may soon try to reassert itself. Traction over 1285 would help confirm this view and set the stage for a push north of 1310. Weakness under 1266 would be a cause for concern, but only a move under 1250 would turn the technical picture outright negative.
