Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD stalled its recovery near the 20-day moving average on Tuesday
  • Our near-term trend bias remains positive while above 1.1210
  • The 1.1530 area is now key resistance with traction above this level needed to trigger a new leg higher in the rate
  • A very minor turn window is seen around the middle of next week
  • A close under 1.1210 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

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

Price & Time Analysis: GOLD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GOLD remains in consolidation mode above the 38% retracement of the year-to-date range
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative while below 1286
  • A move under 1250 is needed kick off a more serious correction in the metal
  • A minor turn window is eyed early next week
  • A close over 1286 would turn us positive on Gold again

GOLD Strategy: Square.

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

The S&P 500 remains choppy. As noted last week we are looking for a break of the year’s opening range to set off the next real directional move in the index. Interestingly the index got to within about 3 handles of the yearly opening range low on Monday before reversing sharply ahead of the widely followed 200-day moving average. It can be argued that the price action over the past few weeks is taking more the shape of a bullish consolidation instead of a top, but a move through 2067 is needed to confirm this notion and set the stage for a run north of 2100. Any weakness under the 200-day moving average (currently around 1980) would turn the technical picture very negative.
