Weekly Price & Time: Critical Test Coming Up For Gold

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD touched its lowest level in almost nine months this week before rebounding off the 50% retracement of the 2013/2014 advance near 1.3370
  • Our broader bias is negative in the euro while under 1.3595
  • Weakness under 1.3370 exposes the next major downside attraction at 1.3295
  • An important turn window is eyed next week
  • A weekly close back over 1.3595 would turn us positive on the exchange rate

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: We like selling on strength over the next few weeks.

Weekly Price & Time Analysis: USD/JPY

Weekly Price & Time: Critical Test Coming Up For Gold

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • USD/JPY traded to its highest level since early April this week
  • Our broader bias is now positive on the exchange rate
  • A close over the 61.8% retracement of the April/May decline near 102.85 is needed as further confirmation that a more serious move higher is underway
  • A minor cycle turn window is eyed later next week
  • Only weakness below 101.05 will turn us negative again on the exchange rate

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Covered tactical shorts on move through 102.25. Now looking to buy on weakness while over 101.05.

Weekly Price & Time: Critical Test Coming Up For Gold

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD came under further pressure this past week to trade at its lowest level since mid-June
  • Our broader bias is negative on the metal while under 1305
  • The 1280/60 area is a key downside pivot with weakness below this zone needed to set off a more important decline
  • An important turn window is eyed around the middle of next week
  • A move back through 1321 on a daily close basis would turn us positive again on the metal

Weekly XAU/USD Strategy: Square here. Like buying the metal on a move through 1305.
