240 Minute Bars
Chart Prepared by Jamie Saettele, CMT using Marketscope 2.0
FOREXAnalysis: As mentioned yesterday, “it’s possible that action since the 3/25 high is a flat correction (and specifically wave b) before the final (leg c) rally that completes the rally from the March low.” Assuming that a secondary low is in place ahead of BoE is probably a dangerous assumption though. Resistance is 1.5175 and support 1.4890-1.5025 (1.4994 is the 61.8% of the rally).
FOREX Trading Strategy: While I see a larger correction towards 1.5400+ as probably, more immediate bearish possibilities are possible. With the rally from the March low failing at the 2012 low, I was quick to pull the trigger on longs at 1.5090. We can always get back in if conditions warrant. As a reminder, updates to current trades can be found via analyst picks.
LEVELS: 1.4901 1.4994 1.5045 1.5175 1.5259 1.5320
