Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD continues to consolidate below the 50-day moving average near 1.1100
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 1.0920
  • A daily close above 1.1100 is needed to trigger another push higher in the euro
  • A very minor turn window is eyed today
  • A close back under 1.0920 would turn us negative again on EUR/USD

EUR/USD Strategy: Square.

InstrumentSupport 2 Support 1SpotResistance 1Resistance 2

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBPUSDcontinues to consolidate below the 61.8% retracement of the June-Jule decline at 1.5700
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative while below this level
  • A move below the 200-day moving average near 1.5400 is needed to re-instill downside momentum in the exchange rate
  • A turn window of some importance is eyed late this week
  • A daily close above 1.5700 would turn us positive on cable

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

Focus Chart of the Day: FXCM US DOLLAR INDEX

The FXCM US Dollar Index (equally weighted basket of USD versus EUR, JPY, GBP & AUD) failed again last week near the 78.6% retracement of the April – May decline in the 12,050 area. There is some vulnerability in the index heading into the FOMC decision this afternoon after yesterday’s break of a minor trendline. However, we would need to see last week’s low around 11,975 give way to trigger a double top on the daily and prime the market for a more serious correction. Traction over 12,050 would alleviate our budding concerns of a correction and set the stage for a re-test of the April high.
