Daily Volume Chart: EUR/USD

The Weekly Volume Report: USD Pushes Higher But Still Waiting on Volume

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD recorded a new low close for the year this week
  • Declining volume during recent consolidation favors a downside resumption, but turnover needs to pick up on weakness to confirm this thinking
  • A rather stagnant daily OBV line also favors an eventual downside resolution
  • A close above 1.1450 on above average volume will turn attention higher

Daily Volume Chart: USD/JPY

The Weekly Volume Report: USD Pushes Higher But Still Waiting on Volume

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has traded in a very tight consolidation over the past couple of weeks
  • The lack of volume during the push higher at the start of the month raises concerns that the consolidation is not yet finished
  • The lack of momentum in daily OBV is also a concern
  • A close under 118.00 on above average volume would turn us negative on the exchange rate

Daily Volume Chart: AUD/USD

The Weekly Volume Report: USD Pushes Higher But Still Waiting on Volume

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD traded at its highest level in almost a month this week
  • Volume has been in general decline since the start of year, but the lack of turnover on the recent rise suggests move is likely only corrective
  • A modest move off the recent lows in daily OBV also favors a correction scenario
  • A daily close above .8000 on above average volume would turn us positive on the Aussie
