Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Searching For Clarity in AUD/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD remains in consolidation mode near the 3rd square root relatinship of the year’s low
  • Our near-term trend bias remains positive while above 1.1315
  • Interim resistance is seen around 1.1445, but a move through 1.1515 is really needed to signal that a more meaningful extension higher is underway
  • An important turn window is eyed today
  • A close below 1.1315 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

EUR/USD Strategy: Like holding only a reduced long positions while above 1.1315. Will look to go short on a move below 1.1260.

  • GOLD fell to its lowest level in a month and a half this morning
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative while below 1238

Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/USD

Price & Time: Searching For Clarity in AUD/USD

The near term technical picture in AUD/USD has muddied a bit over the past few trading days with the pair’s failure to crack the year’s low at .7625 last week. The subsequent ‘higher low’ on the daily chart is a clear warning sign that the downtrend is fatiguing. That said, no real technical damage has been inflected on the broader downtrend as of yet. The key price zone for us looks to be the .7870/85 area as this marks a nice convergence of several important levels of resistance including the month-to-date high, 38% retracement of the year’s range and the 3rd square root relationship of the year’s low. This area also could be interpreted as the trigger for a potential ‘double bottom’ pattern. While below this area we have to give the benefit of the doubt to the broader trend. Traction above .7885, however, would warn that a more meaningful correction higher is beginning to take hold.
