Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY has rallied steadily since finding support at the 78.6% retracement of the May – June range at 120.40 last week
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 122.00
  • A move through 123.70 is needed to set off the next leg higher in the rate
  • A very minor turn window is eyed here
  • A close under 122.00 would turn us negative again on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like buying on weakness against 122.00

InstrumentSupport 2 Support 1SpotResistance 1Resistance 2

Price & Time Analysis: AUD/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD continues to consolidate above Fibonacci support at .7375
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the aussie while below .7555
  • A move through .7375 is needed to trigger the next round of weakness
  • A minor turn window is see early next week
  • A daily close back over .7555 would turn us positive on AUD/USD

AUD/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below .7555

Focus Chart of the Day: S&P 500

The S&P 500 has continued with its recent trend of “having to go down before up”. After a very volatile few days last week with two successive closes below the 200-day moving average the index is suddenly again in a strong position. Yesterday’s move through a key confluence of resistance near 2100 (50-day moving average, median line channel, 61.8% retracement of May- July decline) was potentially an important change in behavior and warns a more meaningful move higher is taking shape. The 78.6% retracement of the May –July decline at 2116 is immediate resistance, but a close over 2130 is really needed to trigger an important upside push. Weakness back under 2087 would be a cause for concern.
