Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Price & Time: Key Test for the Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY is in recovery mode after finding support near the low end of its six month range
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in the rate while above 101.05
  • The 102.25 area remains a key upside pivot with traction above needed to usher in a more significant advance
  • A cycle turn window is eyed here
  • A move back under 101.05 would re-shift focus lower

USD/JPY Strategy: Like going long on a move through 102.25.

Price & Time: Key Test for the Euro

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/CAD is in consolidation mode near the 38% retracement of the June/July decline in the 1.0750 area
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher in Funds while over 1.0630
  • Strength through 1.0800 is needed to signal the start of a new leg higher in the rate
  • The end of the this week/early next week looks to be the next key cycle turn period for USD/CAD
  • A move under 1.0630 will turn us negative on the exchange rate

USD/CAD Strategy: Like the long side while above 1.0630.

Focus Chart of the Day: EUR/USD

Price & Time: Key Test for the Euro

We highlighted the chart above last week. It is a monthly chart of EUR/USD with key Fibonacci retracement and extension levels drawn off yearly highs and lows since 2008. This morning the exchange rate is testing the low end of a confluence zone. If the rate can manage a close sub 1.3460 this week we think it will be strong evidence that the euro is finally embarking on a more significant decline. More importantly this should set the stage for a generally weak second half of the year. In the longer-term scheme of things 1.3730 needs to be reclaimed to neutralize the negative picture.
