Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD probed above Gann resistance at 1.1390 this morning to trade at its highest level in a month
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 1.1180
  • Attention is now on the mid-May high at 1.1465 with a move above needed to confirm that a new leg higher is indeed underway
  • A turn window of some importance is seen today/Friday
  • A close below 1.1180 would turn us negative again on the euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Like reducing long positions here.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD traded at a new 7-month high this morning
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in Cable while above 1.5630
  • A minor Fibonacci/Gann cluster between 1.5990 and 1.6020 is the next attraction of note
  • A very minor turn window is seen today
  • A daily close below 1.5630 would turn us negative on the pound

GBP/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1.5630

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

A failed rally attempt yesterday in USD/JPY keeps the exchange rate in a near-term negative position and threatening a deeper retracement. Last week’s low is a key pivot in this regard as a move under 122.45 would likely set off another meaningful bout of position squaring. Should 122.45 give way the key levels to watch will be the December/March closing highs around 121.40 and then the measured move of last week’s decline near 121.00. As long as the latter holds the broader structure has to considered bullish in a broader context. Below it and it is anybody’s guess, but a deeper liquidation becomes more of a possibility especially with the approach of quarter/half-year end. A move back over yesterday’s 124.40 high is needed to alleviate the immediate downside pressure and re-focus higher.
