As cable has retreated after faltering below indicated resistance at 1.2991-00, retaining our view that further consolidation would be seen with mild downside bias for another test of 1.2900-03 support, break there would suggest a temporary top is possibly formed, bring weakness to 1.2831 support, however, a break below this level is needed to add credence to this view, bring retracement of recent rise to 1.2770-75 but previous support at 1.2757 should hold from here. We are keeping our view that the wave c as well as larger degree wave B has ended at 1.2109, hence impulsive wave C has commenced from there with wave i of C ended at 1.2616, follow by a correction to 1.2365 (end of wave ii) and wave iii rally is unfolding.

Our preferred count on the daily chart is that cable’s rebound from 1.3500 (wave (A) trough) is unfolding as a wave (B) with A ended at 1.7043, followed by triangle wave B and wave C as well as wave (B) has ended at 1.7192, the subsequent selloff is the larger degree wave (C) which is still unfolding with minor wave (III) of larger degree wave 3 ended at 1.1986, hence wave (IV) correction is in progress which could either be a triangle wave (IV) of a complex formation but upside should be limited to 1.3500 and price should falter well below 1.4000, bring another decline in wave (V) of 3 for weakness to 1.1500, then 1.1200.

On the upside, expect recovery to be limited to 1.2950 and bring another retreat later. Above said resistance at 1.2995 would extend recent upmove to 1.3040-50 but overbought condition should limit upside to 1.3075-80 and price should falter below 1.3100.
