Price & Time Analysis: EUR/USD

Price & Time: USD/SEK Leading The Way Again?

Charts Created using Marketscope – Prepared by Kristian Kerr

  • EUR/USD ran into resistance again near the 20-day moving average last week
  • Our near-term trend bias remains positive while above 1.1210
  • Interim resistance is seen around 1.1390, but a move over 1.1530 is really required to trigger a more meaningful push higher
  • A very minor turn window is seen on Tuesday
  • A close under 1.1210 would turn us negative on the exchange rate

EUR/USD Strategy: Like holding only reduced long positions while above 1.1210.

Focus Chart of the Day: USD/SEK

Price & Time: USD/SEK Leading The Way Again?

We have mentioned before in this space that oftentimes USD/SEK will lead broader moves in USD/Europe. We have never really been able to come up with a good explanation as for why this occurs and so often, but it is worth mentioning nonetheless. This morning USD/SEK is seemingly at it again as the exchange rate traded at its highest level in almost six years. With EUR/USD and other key European pairs having undergone sharp reversals in the direction of the primary trend on Friday we can’t help but wonder if the action in Dollar/Stokkie is just a precursor for all the rest. A close above 8.3850 is needed to confirm the breakout in USD/SEK while a close below 1.1210 in EUR/USD is required to confirm a resumption of the broader downtrend.
