Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: USD/JPY Breaks Through Another Key Resistance Barrier

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD is in consolidation mode below the 20-day moving average now around 1.1400
  • Our near-term trend bias is positive while above 1.1210
  • A move over 1.1400 is needed to reinstill upside momentum in the rate and trigger a more meaningful push higher
  • A minor turn window eyed tomorrow
  • A close 1.1210 would turn us negative on the euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Like holding reduced long positions above 1.1210. May look to add around the turn window tomorrow.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price & Time: USD/JPY Breaks Through Another Key Resistance Barrier

USD/JPY broke above the 2nd square root relationship of the 2014 high this morning to trade at its highest level in over a month. The technical break comes on the heels of some other key breaks over the past few days including a trendline connecting the December and January highs and the 61.8% retracement of the December range. The breakout from the multi-month consolidation looks valid and a daily close above 119.65 will further solidify this view. The late December high around 120.80 is the next upside attraction of significance with a break above required to invalidate some medium-term negative cyclical concerns. This week’s low near 118.40 is key support and only weakness below this level would turn the technical picture negative.
