Key Quotes

"Only above 1.6379 we’d see room to test and break above former highs at 1.6748 and at 1.7044 for a minimum extension to 1.7332 (50%) and to 1.7768 (C = A). A decisive break below 1.5819 (minor 38.2 %) would on the other hand signal that a deeper setback to 1.5155/02 (int. 76.4 %/pivot) or the resumption of the long-term downtrend towards the T-zone on big scale between 1.4339 and 1.4228 (76.4 %/2010 low) is on its way."

"In the short-run, we are now focusing on an inner range between 1.6164/80 (pivot/minor 76.4 %) and 1.5915/14 (double-bottom) as a breakout of this range would at least give hints which side of the broader ranger between 1.6315/23/79 and 1.5819 is going to be tested next. Only outside the latter though we'd either look for a straight extension to 1.6748 or a straight selloff to key-supports at 1.5477/36/29 (200 DMA/pivots) and at 1.5155/02."
