Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

PT_NOV18_body_Picture_4.png, Price & Time: Today is an Important Time Juncture in the EuroCharts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY closed over the 2x1 Gann angle line of the year’s high at 100.00 on Friday
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the exchange rate while above 98.60
  • A major upside pivot is the 3rd square root progression of the year’s high at 100.65 with a daily close above needed to confirm that another period of important strength in the exchange rate is underway
  • A minor turn window is seen today and at the end of the week
  • Only a move under the 5th square root progression of the year’s high near 98.60 would turn us negative on USD/JPY
USD/JPY Strategy: Like the long side while over 98.60.

Price & Time Analysis: USD/CHF

  • USD/CHF has come under steady downside pressure since last week’s failure at the 61.8% retracement of the September to October decline in the .9250 area
  • Our near-term trend bias is still higher in the exchange rate and will remain so while above the 2nd square root progression of the year’s low at .9070
  • Interim resistance is seen at .919, but traction over .9250 is really required to signal a resumption of the recetn uptrend
  • The next day or so is a medium-term cycle turn window in the rate
  • A daily close below .9070 would turn us negative on USD/CHF
USD/CHF Strategy: Like holding long positions while the rate is above .9070.

  • XAU/USD rebounded last week off the 88.6% retracement of the late Ocotober advance at 1264
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the metal while below 1322
  • A move under Gann support at 1242 look required to spark a more impulsive decline
  • The middle of the week is a medium-term cycle turn window in Gold
  • A daily close back over 1322 is required to turn us positive on the metal
XAU/USD Strategy: Square here.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

PT_NOV18_body_Picture_1.png, Price & Time: Today is an Important Time Juncture in the EuroAs we noted a week ago the next day or so is a potentially important cycle turn window in EUR/USD as it marks a convergence of two important Fibonacci and Pi time relationships related to the 2008, 2010 and 2012 lows. Ideally we would have liked to see the Euro making new lows into this period, but alas it looks like it was not meant to be. We did warn that if the Euro recovered steadily for a few days it would set up some sort of secondary peak and this is what we are looking for now following the price action of the past few days. Gann points at 1.3525, 1.3540 and 1.3595 look to be key resistance and levels from which a reversal can materialize. We should probably note that if the exchange rate falls sharply over the next 24-36 hours it could still set up some kind of important low, but this is something we will address only on the off chance that it occurs. The next important cycle turn window in the Euro looks to be around the second week of December.
