Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has traded steadily higher since finding support around a key Gann suport near 118.40 at the start of the week
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower while below 121.00
  • A move under 118.40/20 is needed to set off a more important move to the downside in the exchange rate
  • A very minor turn window is eyed early next week
  • A close over 121.00 would turn us positive on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the short side while spot remains below 121.00

Price & Time Analysis: NZD/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • NZD/USD failed yesterday near a key trendline connecting the October/January highs at .7725
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the Kiwi while above .7450
  • A move through .7725 is neeeded to confirm that a new leg higher is underway in the rate
  • The middle of next week looks significant from a medium-term cyclical perspective
  • A daily close below .7450 would turn us negative on NZD/USD

NZD/USD Strategy: Looking to buy on further weakness over the next day or so.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

USD/CAD has settled into a tight range following last week’s aggressive decline on heavy volume. Many questions remain. Was last week’s move just a violent “shake of the tree” to clear out the weak hands before a resumption of the primary trend or is there still more weakness to come? Objectively the structure of the daily chart still looks rather negative and it would probably take a move north of the internal trendline around 1.2470 to convincingly turn things around for us. The well below average volume over the past few days isn’t really that supportive either and warns another leg lower is still very possible - if not likely. Last week’s closing low around 1.2175 looks like a key level in this regard with traction below needed to signal that a new leg lower is unfolding. From a cyclical perspective the next key window for Funds looks to be around the start of next month.
