Price Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD traded at its lowest level in almost two months on Monday before finding support near the 50% retracement of the 2009 to 2010 range at 1.3510
  • Our near-term trend bias is lower in the exchange rate while below 1.3775
  • The 61.8% projection of the early January decline at 1.3485 is a near-term downside pivot with weakness below needed to prompt the next important leg lower in the Euro
  • The latter half of the week is a cycle turn window
  • Only a close over the 1st square root relationship of the 2013 high at 1.3775 would shift our near-term trend bias positive

EUR/USD Strategy: Like the short side while below 1.3775.

Price Time Analysis: GOLD

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • XAU/USD briefly overcame the 1257 88.6% retracement of the December range on Monday
  • Our near-term trend bias in Gold is higher while above 1206
  • A daily close over 1262 is needed to trigger the next important leg higher in the metal
  • A cycle turn window is seen over the second half of the week
  • On a daily close below the 1st square root relationship of the 2013 low at 1206 would turn us negative on Gold

XAU/USD Strategy: We like the long side, but only from lower levels.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/CAD

USD/CAD finally distanced itself from the 161.8% extension of the 2012 range at 1.0950 today to trade at its highest level in over 4 years. A minor cycle turn window is seen early next week, but the big cyclical inflection point for USD/CAD looks to be in about a month as a variety of different longer-term cyclical methods all converge around the third week of February. A high of some importance is slightly favored around this time as sentiment towards the exchange rate is getting very ebullient (the 10-day moving average of DSI is just over 10% bulls). A material turn lower in USD/CAD before the second half of February would obviously change this view and raise the possibility of a cyclical inversion, but that is a big ‘if’. The top of the 1-year standard channel near 1.1100 is the next resistance hurdle of note.
