-Price has traded above the 2011 and 2013 highs (at about 1.6220) intraweek. The line from the 2009 and 2011 highs is at 1.6328 this week.

Trading Strategy: Market may be completing 5 waves up from the 9/24 low, in which case a top might come in around 1.6320/57 (61.8 and 100 percent expansions of wave 4 from 1.6259 to 1.6162). Below 1.6162 would begin to suggest at least a deeper decline.
