As the single currency has continued moving higher after staging a strong rebound from 114.85, adding credence to our view that a temporary low has been formed there and consolidation with mild upside bias remains for further gain to 117.80, then 118.00-10, however, reckon upside would be limited to 118.40-50 and bring retreat later, below 116.25-30 would bring weakness to 115.75-80 but reckon 115.40-50 would hold, bring another rebound later.

In view of this, whilst we are looking to turn long on dips, we would also sell euro on subsequent rebound towards 118.40-50. Only below said support at 114.85 would signal recent entire fall from 124.10 top is still in progress and downside risk remains for further weakness to 114.40-50, then towards 114.00-10, however, near term oversold condition should prevent sharp fall below latter level and risk from there is seen for a much-needed rebound to take place later.

Our latest preferred count is that wave (ii) is ABC-X-ABC which ended at 123.33 and wave (iii) is unfolding with wave iii ended at 100.77, followed by wave iv at 111.57 and wave v as well as the wave (iii) has ended at 97.04, followed by wave (iv) at 111.43 and wave (v) has ended at 94.12 which is also the end of the larger degree v, this also implied the major wave (C) has also ended there, hence major correction has commenced from there with (A) leg unfolding in its lower degree wave c which has possibly ended at 145.69. Under this count, A-B-C wave (B) has commenced with A leg ended at 136.23, wave B at 143.79 and wave C has possibly ended at 149.79.

Our larger degree count is that the decline from 139.26 is wave (C) and is sub-divided into a diagonal triangle i-ii-iii-iv-v with wave i - 105.44, wave ii- 123.33, wave iii - 97.03, wave iv - 111.43, followed by the final wave v as well as the end of wave (C) at 94.12, this also mark the bottom of larger degree wave B. Under this count, major rise in wave C has commenced as an impulsive wave with minor wave III ended at 145.69, wave V is still in progress for further gain to 150.00. Having said that, this so-called wave V could well be the first leg of larger degree 5-waver wave C and this wave C should bring at least a retest of wave A top at 169.97 (July 2008).
