Euro Expanding Ending Diagonal a Possibility
60 Minute Bars
Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT
I had thought that a triangle was forming but the burst through 13565 dismissed that idea. A low could be in place but momentum considerations are bearish (momentum extremes at lows for example). A corresponding bearish count treats the rally as wave iv of an expanding diagonal. This is a rare pattern but it is valid. Wave C would be 1.618 x wave A at the current juncture. There is also trendline resistance from the origin of wave I and top of wave II. I still maintain that “we should then have an opportunity to play an early October bullish reversal.”
