Key Quotes

“We would allow for further stabilisation here. However to reassert upside pressure a move back above the 200 day ma at 1.3013 is needed. Above here should be enough to cast our eyes back to the 1.3217 recent high. The 55 day ma guards the 1.2669/62 mid-January and August lows. The intraday Elliott wave counts remain negative.”

“Overhead lies the 55 week ma at 1.3254. Here we also find the July, September and October highs at 1.3258/1.3363. We suspect that this will hold and provoke failure. Above here would target the June high at 1.3473 and the 200 week ma at 1.3630 (not favoured).”
