Daily chart

The price is already well underway in its correction, confirming the prior analysis in the initial article.

The timing of the initial setup wasn’t quite right, and the stop loss was triggered for a breakeven outcome, and that is perfectly fine. 

However, on this occasion, the setup will be according to technical indicators which have now aligned in order for a buy limit be placed at a strategic location to offer a 1:3 risk to reward (R/R) ratio.

All of the analysis from this point on can be done on a 4-hour time frame. 

4HR chart

As it stands, a buy limit from support to TP (take profit) 1, or 3 (I) offers a 1: 2.5 risk to reward while there is a 1:3 risk to reward to TP 2, or  3 (ii).
