As the single currency retreated after marginal rise to 122.89, suggesting minor consolidation below this level would be seen and pullback to 122.00-05 cannot be ruled out, however, reckon downside would be limited to 121.70-80 and bring another rise later, above said resistance at 122.89 would signal the rise from 118.24 low is still in progress and may extend further gain to 123.30-35. Looking ahead, a sustained breach above this level is needed to retain bullishness and signal early erratic fall from 124.10 top has ended at 118.24, bring further rise to 123.85-90 first.

In view of this, would not chase this rise here and would be prudent to reinstate long on pullback as 121.70-80 should limit downside and bring another rise. Below 121.30 would abort and signal top is formed instead but only break of previous resistance at 121.13 would confirm and bring further fall to 120.45-50 first. 

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).
