EUR/GBP – 0.8661
EUR/GBP – The major (A)(B)(C)-(X)-(A)(B)(C) correction from 0.9805 is unfolding and 2nd (A) has possibly ended at 0.6936.
As the single currency has retreated after meeting resistance at 0.8788 earlier this month, retaining our view that minor consolidation below this level would be seen and pullback to 0.8630-35 cannot be ruled out, however, reckon downside would be limited to 0.8595-00 and renewed buying interest should emerge around there, bring another rise later. Above said resistance at 0.8788 would extend the rebound from 0.8403 towards indicated resistance at 0.8857 which is likely to hold from here.
Our latest preferred count is that the wave V of a 5-wave series from 0.5682 ended at 0.9805 earlier and major from there has possibly ended at 0.8067 as A-B-C-X-A-B-C. We are keeping our view that the entire correction from 0.9805 has possibly ended at 0.7756 and as labeled as the attached daily chart and impulsive move from 0.9084 has ended at 0.7756 as a 5-waver which marked either the (C) wave or the A leg of (C), a daily close above resistance at 0.8831 would suggest (C) leg has ended and headway towards 0.9084.
On the downside, whilst pullback to 0.8630-35 cannot be ruled out, reckon downside would be limited to 0.8595-00 and bring another rise later. Below 0.8545-50 would defer and suggest top is formed instead, and risk weakness to 0.8500-10 but break there is needed to provide confirmation and suggest the rebound from 0.8403 has ended.
Recommendation: Buy at 0.8600 for 0.8750 with stop below 0.8500.
Euro’s long term uptrend started in Feb 1981 at 0.5039 and is unfolding as a (A)-(B)-(C) move with (A): 0.8433 (Feb 1993), (B): 0.5682 (May 2000) and impulsive wave (C) should have ended at 0.9805 with wave III ended at 0.7254 (May 2003), triangle wave IV at 0.6536 (23 Jan 2007) and wave V as well as wave (C) has ended at 0.9805.
We are keeping an alternate count that only wave III ended at 0.9805 and the correction from there is the wave IV and may extend weakness to 0.7700, however, it is necessary to see a daily close above resistance at 0.9143 would change this to be the preferred count.
