Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY continues to consolidate above the 50% retracement of the May – June advance at 122.40
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the exchange rate while below 124.40
  • Weakness under 122.40 is needed to set off a more important move lower in USD/JPY
  • Minor turn windows are seen today and Wednesday
  • A close over 124.40 would turn us positive on the exchange rate

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the short side while below 124.40.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD traded at a new 7-month high last week before stalling out near the 50% retracement of the 2014 high and this year’s low
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in Cable while above 1.5675
  • A close over 1.5875 is needed to expose a Fibonacci/Gann cluster between 1.5990 and 1.6020
  • A minor turn window is seen around the middle of the week
  • A daily close below 1.5675 would turn us negative on the pound

GBP/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1.5675

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

EUR/USD recorded a new month-to-date high late last weekand actually came within a few pips of testing the quarter-to-date closing high at 1.1442 before stalling out. Is the euro undergoing a double top backtest before turning lower or is it about to break out and extend the multi-month advance? The next 24-28 hours should prove key in determining which path the euro will take as near-term cyclical analysis suggests we have reached an inflection point of sorts. If the broader downtrend is going to re-assert itself here then EUR/USD shouldn’t really rally past last week’s 1.1435 high. Traction above this level would be a strong sign that multi-month correction in the single currency is nowhere near finished. A failure, on the other hand, at or around current levels followed by a break of median-line channel support at 1.1230 over the next few sessions would confirm a change in behavior and re-focus attention lower in the single currency.
