Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPYcontinues to consolidate below a minor retracement level at 125.20
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 124.00
  • A daily close above 125.20 is needed to set off the next leg higher in the exchange rate
  • A very minor turn window is eyed tomorrow
  • A daily close below 124.00 would turn us negative on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the long side while above 124.00

Price & Time Analysis: NZD/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • NZD/USD continues to consolidate above .6500
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative on the kiwi while below .6735
  • A move under .6500 is needed to set up a test of a key long-term retracement around .6400
  • A very minor turn window is eyed tomorrow
  • A daily close above the .6735 would turn us positive on the bird

NZD/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below .6735

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

The big news overnight in the FX markets was the decision by the PBoC to devalue the CNY. This not surprisingly prompted a fairly immediate dollar rally across the board. USD strength was short-lived in the case of EUR/USD, however, as the pair made back all its PBoC inspired losses by the beginning of European trading (purportedly on the back of a large unwind of short EUR/CNH positions). The loss of downside momentum in EUR/USD over the past few days in the face of some fairly positive USD news clearly raises the risk for a deeper upside correction in the pair. The 50-day moving average around 1.1100 remains critical in this regard as it has so successfully repelled rally attempts over the past month. Any traction above this level would be a pretty clear bullish change in behavior. Failure around this level followed by a break of 1.0950 likely paves the way for a renewed assault on the critical downside pivot at 1.0800.
