Key Quotes

“Last week the market based at 1.2015 and is correcting higher near term. The market remains under pinned by the January 2017 low at 1.1988 (we have a 13 count on the daily chart and TD support is 1.1988).”

“We would allow for a rebound to the down channel at 1.2336. Below 1.1988 lies the 1.1491 3rd October low (according to CQG). It stays negative while contained by its 3 month downtrend at 1.2336 today. Only above the downtrend this would introduce scope to the 55 day ma at 1.2443 and the June high at 1.2784.”

“Only a rise above the June high at 1.2784 would indicate that a bottom is being formed (not favoured).”
