  • Outside of GameStop and other activist driven stocks, risk markets seem to be struggling for direction.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Another 'Do Or Die' Week For EUR/USD

It is shaping up to be an important week for EUR/USD as several key short and medium-term cyclical relationships are set to converge around the middle of the week. We should learn a lot about the nature of the current correction higher and whether it has more steam in it or is just about to peter out like all the rest. The reversal late last month in the euro came at the right time from a cyclical perspective and we were able to forecast it reasonably well (Read HERE). Our base case was that the correction would last a minimum of three weeks - which it has. Now the fun part, if the euro is going to follow the template of previous declines then it should top out sometime around Tuesday or Wednesday. A break below 1.1260 and more importantly 1.1210 would help confirm a broader downside resumption. On the other hand, continued strength past Wednesday into the latter part of the week would invalidate the turn window and signal an important change in behavior for the exchange rate. This would open the door to a few more weeks of upside for EUR/USD. The 1.1515 level looks to be a key upside closing pivot.
