Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Dow 30 - "Death Cross" Or Just A Simple Crossover?

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD touched its highest level in a month yesterday before stalling out near the 1x1 gann angle line of the May high
  • The close above 1.1100 has shifted our near-term trend bias higher in the exchange rate
  • A push through the Gann level around 1.1180 is needed to set off a more important push higher
  • A minor turn window is seen today
  • A close under 1.1040 would turn us negative again on the euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Trailing stop triggered yesterday - Square.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Dow 30 - "Death Cross" Or Just A Simple Crossover?

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY traded to its highest level in two months on Wednesday before reversing sharply at the 88.6% retracement of the June - July decline near 125.20
  • Our near-term trend bias is still higher in the exchange rate while above 124.00 (closing basis)
  • Traction over 124.70 is needed to alleviate some of the immediate downside pressure and re-instill upside momentum
  • A minor turn window is seen tomorrow
  • A daily close under 124.00 would turn us negative on USD/JPY

USD/JPY Strategy: Like the long side while over 124.00 (closing basis).

Focus Chart of the Day: DOW 30

Price & Time: Dow 30 - "Death Cross" Or Just A Simple Crossover?

There has been a lot of talk over the past few days about the purported “death cross” in the Dow Jones Industrial Average. I have never really been one for moving average crossovers, but I know that market pundits have it wrong here. A true death cross actually requires that both moving averages be sloping lower. In the case of the Dow this clearly isn’t the case as the 200-day moving average is still moving up. You could say that getting a crossover to occur after both moving averages have turned lower rarely ever happens, but that is precisely the point. A death cross as the name implies is supposed to be rare, but meaningful occurrence - not just a simple crossover. Supposedly it is an extra variable that helps determine when a meaningful trend shift is looming. I will leave that to the quants to decide. Like I said I am not a “crossover guy”, but it is just something to be aware of given all the recent hoopla.
