Keep an eye on AUDJPY. Monday’s low tagged the center line of the channel from the October high. The 25 line cuts through former lows and is in line with the well-defined 82.10…watch that for resistance. A break lower would target 78.84 and 76.80s, which is 2 legs down from the October high and the lower parallel of the channel. If price breaks below the center line then the underside of that line becomes resistance. Bottom line, there are solid reference points that should help return to the short side.
USDCAD ripped into the upper parallel of the multi month bearish fork today and turned lower. Resistance is also defined by VWAP from the high and the 50 day average. Given the level, I’m looking for USDCAD to trade lower.
SPX printed 4447 after the close. This is a good spot for a bounce, especially given elevated volumes in SPY and QQQ today. The red bars on the charts below indicate when the volume is at least 1.5 x the 20 day average at a 50 day low. The market usually bounces following one of these high volume days, although there are of course exceptions. My ‘favored’ view is that price bounces but that the bounce fails near 4530.
Is USDCHF about to get destroyed? After failing at a 2+ year trendline in late 2021, price has broken a year long trendline and now re-tested the underside of the line the last 2 weeks. This chart is extremely bearish.
USDJPY spiked above the noted line off of the September and December lows but closed just under the line. As such, I’m thinking that today’s high is a lower high within a bearish sequence from the 1/4 high. Focus remains on 112.20/50.
GBPUSD sports 5 waves down from the high in what is probably wave an of a small 3 wave correction. As such, expectations are for a small bounce in wave b. The proposed resistance is 1.3690s. Eventually, the top side of the former channel resistance is proposed support near 1.3600.
USDJPY broke the line off of the September and December lows. The underside of this line should provide resistance now near 114.70. Initial downside focus is the mentioned 112.20/50 zone.
Make or break time for USDOLLAR! Price closed right at 8 month channel support. IF price breaks below the channel, then the objective is the channel extension which intersects the March-May line and March high at 11929 in early February.
1/11 – Pay attention to the USD indices over the next few days. The big level for USDOLLAR is about 12115. This is the trendline from the May low and September high. A break below would ‘announce’ that the USD trend is lower.

NQ broke the channel from the March low today but sharply reversed higher, putting in a high volume reversal in the process (see below chart). Watch the underside of the channel for resistance now near 15750 but the reversal casts doubt on that level as resistance. Proposed support is 15400. If this is a bigger top then both sides probably need to be frustrated…that’s how distribution works!
