As the greenback has surged again today and broke above indicated resistance at 1.3415, suggesting the correction from 1.3535 has possibly ended and consolidation with mild upside bias is seen for further gain to 1.3495-00 but break there is needed to signal upmove has resumed for retest of 1.3535, once this level is penetrated, this would extend recent upmove from 1.2969 to 1.3575-80 but previous chart resistance at 1.3599 should hold on first testing.

In view of this, we are looking to buy on pullback as 1.3370-80 should limit downside and bring another rise. Below 1.3340 would abort and suggest the rebound from 1.3264 has ended instead, bring further fall to 1.3300-10 but said support at 1.3264 should remain intact. Only a break below this level at 1.3264 would shift risk back to downside for the fall from 1.3535 to extend weakness to 1.3235-40 (61.8% Fibonacci retracement of 1.3056-1.3535) and then 1.3200-10. 

To recap, wave B from 1.3066 is unfolding as an a-b-c and is sub-divided as a: 1.2192, b: 1.2716 and wave c is a 5-waver with i: 1.1983, ii: 1.2506, extended wave iii with minor iii at 1.0206, wave iv ended at 1.0781 and wave v as well as wave iii has ended at 0.9931, hence the subsequent choppy trading is the wave iv which is unfolding as (a)-(b)-(c) with (a) leg of iv ended at 1.0854, followed by (b) leg at 1.0108 and (c) leg as well as the wave iv ended at 1.0674. The wave v is sub-divided by minor wave (i): 0.9980, (ii): 1.0374, (iii): 0.9446, (iv): 0.9913 and (v) as well as v has possibly ended at 0.9407, therefore, consolidation with upside bias is seen for major correction, indicated target at 1.3700 and 1.4000 had been met and further gain to 1.4700 would be seen later.
