Foreign Exchange Price & Time at a Glance:

Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD has treaded steadily lower since failing last week at the 61.8% retracement of the May – July range near 1.1215
  • Yesterday’s close below 1.1040 has shifted our near-term bias to negative on the rate
  • A Gann angle line from the March low comes into play around 1.1000 and this looks to an important downside pivot for EUR/USD
  • A minor turn window is eyed today/tomorrow
  • A daily close above 1.1215 would turn us positive on the euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Square for now.

Price & Time Analysis: GBP/USD

ChartPrepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD traded at its highest level in over a month yesterday, but stalled at the 1x1 Gann angle line of the June high around 1.5720
  • Our near-term trend bias is negative on cable while below 1.5720
  • A move below Fibonacci support around 1.5560 is needed to re-instill some downside momentum in the rate
  • The latter half of next week looks important from a cyclical perspective
  • A daily close above 1.5720 would turn us positive on the pound

GBP/USD Strategy: Square for now.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

USD/CAD remains in consolidation mode below the recent 1.3212 multi-year high. Following the breakout last month above the 2009 high the broader technical outlook is generally favorable with a move through 1.3212 needed to break the current impasse and unlock a medium-term run higher towards the 61.8% retracement of the 2002 – 2007 decline near 1.3500. The setback from the high has been relatively tame thus far as the low end of a median line channel drawn from the May low has supported downside attempts well. A daily close below this level (currently at 1.3045) would be an early warning sign that the correction is gaining traction, but only a clear break of last week’s low at 1.2950 would turn the near-term technical picture more acutely negative for funds.
