Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPYstalled near the mid-June highs earlier this week
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 1.2300
  • A daily close above the 78.6% retracement of the June - July decline at 124.70 is needed to re-instill upside momentum into the rate
  • A minor turn window is seen early next week
  • A close under 122.00 would turn us negative on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the long side while over 122.00

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD continues to consolidate below the 61.8% retracement of the June - July decline at 1.5700
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in cable while below 1.5700
  • A move back under 1.5525 is needed to re-instill downside momentum into the exchange rate
  • A very minor turn window is eyed today
  • A daily close above 1.5700 would turn us positive on the pound

GBP/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below 1.5700

Focus Chart of the Day: NZD/USD

We wrote last week about the extreme negative sentiment picture developing in NZD/USD and the propensity for such conditions to lead to some fairly sharp counter-trend moves. Almost on cue after touching the 5% bulls level on the DSI the kiwi began to rally at the start of the week (helped by comments from the NZ Prime Minister – a former FX trader). Last night’s decision to “only” cut the key rate by 25 basis points (some were looking for 50bps) and a less dovish than expected accompanying statement has forced a further scramble for a wrongly positioned market. The key level to watch over the next few sessions looks to be the trendline connecting the May/June highs around .6700. A daily close or two above .6700 would warn that a deeper retracement is at hand while a clear failure here at resistance would open the way for a move to test long-term Fibonacci attraction around .6400.
