Key Quotes

EUR/USD recently eroded key near term resistance at 1.1723/25 and has now eroded its 55 day ma as well, but we have not yet seen a close above here. The intraday Elliott wave counts are more positive and intraday dips are expected to hold over 1.1710/1.1675 ahead of another leg up. This suggests another attempt at the June high at 1.1853/55 is likely. Above 1.1855 we look for a deeper retracement to the 1.1927 55 week ma, with scope for the 1.1986 200 day ma”.

“Below 1.1500 will target the 200 week ma at 1.1388″.
