Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Topping Pattern in EUR/JPY?

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD failed to gain traction yesterday below 1.0820 and rallied sharply in response
  • Our near-term trend bias is still lower in the euro while below 1.0980
  • A daily close below the May low around 1.0820 is needed to kick off a more important decline
  • A minor turn window is seen early next week
  • A close over 1.0980 would turn us positive on EUR/USD

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below 1.0980.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/JPY

Price & Time: Topping Pattern in EUR/JPY?

Yesterday we wrote about USD/JPY and our concern that the low volume rally in the exchange rate could lead to some sort of secondary high. Naturally this concern extends to the yen crosses as well. One of the more interesting charts at the moment is that of EUR/JPY. After finding support earlier this month at the 50% retracement of the April – June advance around 133.50 the cross has drifted below the 200-day moving average. This has set up a fairly clear potential head & shoulders topping pattern on the daily chart. Weakness under 133.50 would confirm a top of some magnitude and set the stage for a more important run lower. A move back over 138.00 in the cross is needed to invalidate the potential topping pattern and signal a resumption of the medium-term uptrend.
