Weekly Price & Time: EUR/USD Cracking Important Support

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD broke under a key Fibonacci confluence this week to trade to new lows for the year
  • A weekly close under 1.3470 will shift our broader trend bias to negative on the euro
  • The 1.3395 area is the next important zone of support
  • An important turn window is eyed around the first week of August
  • A weekly close back over 1.3700 would turn us positive again on the euro

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Will go square on a close under 1.3470. Will look to sell into strength in the weeks ahead.

  • USD/JPY has moved steadily higher over the past week from near the multi-month range lows

  • A close under 100.75 is needed to signal a resumption of the broader decline
  • The next turn window of importance is eyed near month end
  • Only strength over 102.25 will turn us positve on USD/JPY

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: Like tactical short positions in USD/JPY while below 102.25.
