Weekly Price & Time: Key Period Coming Up For Gold

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD consolidated just above its four month low this past week
  • Our broader bias is negative on the Euro while below 1.3755
  • A daily close under 1.3520 is needed to confirm a resumption of the broader decline
  • The latter half of the month is the next cycle turn window of importance
  • A move through 1.3755 is needed to shift the broader trend bias to positive

Weekly EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while under 1.3755.

  • USD/JPY came under fairly steady pressure this past week after failing at Gann resistance near 102.80
  • Our broader bias is negative in the rate while below 104.40
  • A close under 101.35 will signal a resumption of the broader decline
  • The end of the month is the next turn window of significnance for the rate
  • Only strength over 104.40 will turn us positve on USD/JPY

Weekly USD/JPY Strategy: We like tactical short positions in USD/JPY while below 104.40 on a weekly close basis.
