Foreign Exchange Price Time at a Glance:

Price Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price amp; Time: Sell in May?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD remains in a sideways to lower range since failing earlier in the month at the 78.6% retracement of the March to April decline in the 1.3900 area
  • Our near-term trend bias is positive in the Euro while over 1.3730
  • A break of 1.3900 is required to signal that a new move higher is underway
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen on Thursday
  • Only weakness below the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.3730 would turn us negative on the Euro

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the long side while over 1.3730.

Price Time Analysis: AUD/USD

Price amp; Time: Sell in May?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • AUD/USD has come under steady pressure since failing at the 8th square root relationship of the year’s low in the .9495 area earlier in the month
  • Our near-term trend bias is higher while above the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at .9265
  • Interim resistance is eyed around .9360, but over .9495 is really needed to confirm the start of any new important push higher
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen today, the second half of April is a broader turn window
  • A move under .9265 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

AUD/USD Strategy: Like being square for a few days.

Focus Chart of the Day: SP 500

Price amp; Time: Sell in May?

The price action in the SP 500 since March has taken very much by surprise. Both extremes of the March range had important timing associated with them. Both extremes were broken in the first half April and both had almost no follow through. Frustrating, but oftentimes part of the game in a low vol regime. The key going forward looks to be the Dow on the downside and the NDX on the upside. We say this because the Dow has been relatively strong over the past few weeks and never breached its March 17th low. If weakness materializes in the weeks ahead and extends into the stronger Dow and sees it move below 15,980 then this would be a very powerful sign that a top of some importance is developing. The opposite can be said of the NDX. It has been the weakest of the main indices and its March high is still firmly intact. If a new leg higher is developing we will want to see strength extend into the weaker issues to confirm. A move through 3,740 in the NDX would be very bullish. A few medium-term cyclical relationships converge around the start of May, but mid-July is still the key cyclical focal point.
