Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD failed again last week at Gann resistance in the 1.1040 area
  • Our near-term trend bias is positive on the euro while above 1.0760
  • A move through 1.1040 is needed to set off a more serious advance
  • A minor turn window is eyed around the latter part of the week
  • Only weakness below 1.0760 would turn us negative again on the euro.

EUR/USD Strategy: Link the long side while over 1.0760.

  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the index while below 12,015
  • Weakness below 11,830 needed to set off a more serious decline

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

April is shaping up to be an interesting period for the S&P 500. A host of important long-term cyclical relationships should influence throughout April, but the first few days and last few days of the month look to be especially important. The first real test for the market will come around the end of this week as a perfect 3,141 “pi cycle” trading day count from the October 2002 low in the index should influence the market. Interestingly this relationship will coincide with the release of US March payrolls data. What this will mean for the index is the tricky part as it is stuck in a pretty clear range at the moment. Our general modus operandi around these key cyclical periods or windows is to look to fade the prevailing trend. There isn’t really one at the moment to fade, though a break of 2040 or a push back over 2119 would start to get us looking for a potential reversal.
