New strategy :

Stand aside

Position: -
Target:  -

Although the sharp retreat from 125.82 to 122.56 (yesterday’s low) suggests a temporary top has possibly been formed there, as euro found support there and has rebounded, suggesting consolidation with initial upside bias would be seen and recovery to 124.40-50 cannot be ruled out, however, still reckon upside would be limited to 125.00 and price should falter below 125.40-50, bring another corrective fall later.

On the downside, below 123.35-40 would bring weakness to 122.90-00 but said support at 122.56 should hold on first testing. Only break there would add credence to our view that top has been formed, bring retracement of recent upmove to 122.00-10 and then 121.50-60 but downside should be limited to 121.20-30, bring rebound 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).
