Price Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD traded at its highest level since the start of the year on Wednesday before encountering stiff resistance at the 1st square root relationship of the 2013 high near 1.3775
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower higher following Tuesday’s close over 1.3710
  • The 1.3775 level is important resistance that needs to be overcome soon to trigger a more meaningful push higher in the rate
  • The middle of next week is the next cycle turn window of importance
  • A daily close below 1.3590 would shift our near-term trend bias negative again

EUR/USD Strategy: Square for the moment. Will look to position around middle of next week.

Price Time Analysis: GBP/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • GBP/USD touched its highest level since November of 2009 on Monday before reversing sharply
  • Our near-term trend bias in positive in Cable while over 1.6560
  • A close over a Fibonacci expansion relationship related to the 2013 low at 1.6760 is needed to signal that a new leg higher in the rate is underway
  • A minor cycle turn window is seen on Friday
  • A daily close below the 2nd square root relationship of the year’s high at 1.6560 would turn us negative on Cable

GBP/USD Strategy: Look to buy on weakness over next day or against 1.6560.

Focus Chart of the Day: AUD/USD

USD/CAD turned very nicely at the start of the cycle turn window we have been highlighting. We are also watching AUD/USD very closely following Tuesday’s failure at the 38% retracement of the October to January decline near .9080. The start of the week was significant for the exchange rate from a shorter-term cyclical perspective and further weakness after today’s recovery attempt will be further evidence of a more important negative shift. A key downside pivot looks to be the .8890 2nd square root relationship of the Tuesday’s high. A minor cycle turn window is seen early next week.
