Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD touched its lowest level in over a year yesterday before rebounding off the 1st square root relationship of the 2013 low near 1.2860
  • Our near-term trend bias remains lower in the rate while below 1.3010
  • A close under 1.2860 is needed to kick off a new leg lower

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/JPY

Price amp; Time: USD/JPY Where To Next?

With USD/JPY breaking out to new 6-year highs over the past couple of days I thought it would be useful to revisit the monthly chart as it has been a good big picture guide. At the start of the year USD/JPY failed right around 105.30 which was the convergence of the 61.8% retracement of the 2002-2011 decline and the 50% retracement of the 2002-2011 decline. The recent break above this long-term resistance zone is obviously potentially very bullish – especially if the exchange rate can hold above 105.30 into the end of the month as this would favor a move towards the next long-term Fibonacci resistance cluster around 112.30/113.35. A convergence of the trendline connecting the 2002 2007 peaks and the 1.618% extension of the 1Q14 range around 1.0800/30 could prove sticky in the near-term, but the real zone of attraction in the way I look at things appears to be closer to 112.00. Failure to achieve a monthly close over 105.30 would make me doubt the validity of the break out, but weakness under the trendline connecting the 1998 2007 highs near 104.00 is needed to turn the picture more overtly negative.
