Euro Price Chart – EUR/USD Weekly
Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Sr. Technical Strategist; EUR/USD on TradingView
Euro marked an outside-weekly reversal on Friday with the advance now testing a key resistance zone we’ve been tracking for weeks at 1.0704/65- a region defined by the objective 2023 yearly open, the 52-week (yearly) moving average, and the 38.2% retracement of the entire yearly range. Looking for a reaction up here.
A breach / weekly close above this level is needed to fuel a larger recovery towards former slope support (currently 1.0870s) and the 61.8% retracement at 1.0959. Look for initial support into the May lows at 1.0635 with medium-term bullish invalidation set to the objective monthly-open at 1.0575.
Bitcoin Price Chart – BTC/USD Weekly
Chart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Sr. Technical Strategist; BTC/USD on TradingView
Bitcoin has surged more than 116% year-to-date with BTC/USD now testing a major technical confluence into the late-2022 uptrend at 35018/758- a region defined by the 61.8% extension and the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of the 2021 decline. Ultimately a breach / weekly close above the upper parallel (blue) is needed to fuel the next leg higher in price towards the 100% extension at 41259 and the 2022 yearly open at 46200.
Initial weekly support now rests with the July high-week close at 30253 and is backed by the monthly open near ~26965. A break / weekly close below 25212/800 would ultimately be needed to put the bears back in control here.
S&P 500 Price Chart – SPX500 DailyChart Prepared by Michael Boutros, Sr. Technical Strategist; SPX500 on TradingView
In last week’s Weekly Strategy Outlook we noted that, “The S&P 500 rebounded off confluent Fibonacci support on Friday at 4115- the immediate focus is on possible inflection off this zone into the close of the month with the bears vulnerable while above. . . Broader bearish invalidation now lowered to the 4304/08.” The index rallied through this threshold into the close last week and the focus now shifts to a possible test of more significant resistance at the July downtrend.
Initial resistance being tested here today at the August low-day close (4365) with a major confluent zone eye just higher at 4416/17- a region defined by the June 16th high-close, the July low-day close, and the 61.8% retracement of the July decline. Looking for a larger reaction there IF reached with a breach / close above needed to suggest am ore significant low was registered last month. Initial support now 4308 with near-term bullish invalidation now raised to the 200-day moving average at 4260.
