EURUSD 7th January, 2014

Very little has changed with the euro throughout Tuesday. As expected the euro moved towards the upside to confirm our main count, but it came within 16 pips of reaching our target. The current fourth wave has come well into the area of the previous fourth wave of one-lower degree, which is the typical level for reversal, but it may still move higher.

We’re updating our counts to reflect the most recent price action and to present tighter targets and invalidation points. As usual we’ll use each count’s invalidation point as confirmation of the other count.

Hourly Main Count
– Invalidation Point: 1.3655
– Confirmation Point: 1.3570
– Downwards Target : 1.3579 – 1.3543
– Wave number: Submicro (3)
– Wave structure: Motive
– Wave pattern: Impulse

Hourly Alternate Count
– Invalidation Point: 1.3730 – 1.3570
– Confirmation Point: 1.3655
– Upwards Target : 1.3671

Main Daily Wave Count

eurusd-daily

eurusd-macd-daily

The bigger picture sees the euro within primary wave B to the upside, and within that in intermediate wave (C), and within that in minor wave 3.

Within minor wave 3, minute waves i unfolded as an impulse labeled minuette waves (i) through (v), and minute wave ii unfolded as a zigzag labeled minuette waves (a), (b) and (c) which retraced 50% of minute wave i.

Minute wave iii is forming an extension. Within it, minuette wave (i) unfolded as an impulse labeled subminuette waves i through v.

This count expects that minuette wave (ii) is now unfolding towards the downside, most likely as a zigzag.

The MACD indicator augments this count by showing multiple bearish divergences. While price has made higher and higher tops, momentum is consistently decreasing, forming lower highs. The MACD also shows a bearish crossover, which further augments this count.

In terms of candlestick analysis, the last bar resembles a “spinning top,” which is generally a sign of indecision and anticipation.

At 1.3664 minuette wave (ii) would retrace 38.2% of minuette wave (i), then at 1.3523 it would retrace 61.8% of its length.

This wave count is invalidated by movement below 1.3294 as minuette wave (ii) may not move beyond the start of minuette wave (i). It’s also invalidated by movement above 1.3892 as within a zigzag a B-wave may not move beyond the start of the A-wave.

Main Hourly Wave Count

eurusd-h1

eurusd-macd-h1

This count sees the euro moving within subminuette wave a of minuette wave (ii) to the downside.

Within subminuette wave a, micro waves 1 and 2 are complete.

Micro wave 3 extended towards the downside as an impulse labeled submicro waves (1) through (5), and came close to 161.8% the length of micro wave 1.

Micro wave 4 unfolded as a combination labeled submicro waves (W), (X) and (Y).

Submicro wave (W) formed an expanded flat labeled miniscule waves A, B and C.

Submicro wave (X) retraced over 61.8% of submicro wave (W).

Submicro wave (Y) formed a zigzag labeled miniscule waves A, B and C.

This count expects that micro wave 5 has probably started unfolding towards the downside, that within it submicro waves (1) and (2) are complete, and that the euro will continue moving lower in submicro wave (3). This will be confirmed by movement below 1.3570.

The MACD augments this count by showing a clear bearish divergence, where price made a higher high while momentum made a lower high.

In terms of candlestick analysis, no significant pattern appears at this point, expect that the euro has just made a lower high and a lower low, which suggests that the new short-term trend is downwards.

At 1.3579 submicro wave (3) would reach 100% of submicro wave (1), then at 1.3543 it would reach 161.8% of its length.

This wave count is invalidated by movement above 1.3655 as within micro wave 5 no wave may move beyond the start of the first wave.

Alternate Hourly Wave Count

eurusd-h1

This count sees that micro wave 4 is not yet complete and that it may be unfolding as a triple combination labeled submicro waves (W) through (Z).

The second submicro wave (X) is probably unfolding as a zigzag labeled miniscule waves A, B and C.

This count expects the euro to first move lower to complete submicro wave (X) before reversing towards the upside in submicro wave (Z) to complete micro wave 4. This will be confirmed by movement above 1.3655.

At 1.3671 micro wave 4 would retrace 38.2% the length of micro wave 3.

This wave count is invalidated by movement above 1.3730 as within the impulse of subminuette wave a micro wave 4 may not enter the price territory of micro wave 1. It’s also invalidated by movement below 1.3570 as it’s extremely unlikely for a correction (other than an expanding triangle) to make two new lows beyond that of the preceding impulse.

Alternate Daily Wave Count

eurusd-daily

This alternate daily count sees that minuette wave (ii) has been unfolding as a short zigzag that’s either complete or very near completion.

This count expects that minuette wave (ii) may be over and that minuette wave (iii) will start unfolding towards the upside.

At 1.4168 minuette wave (iii) would reach 100% the length of minuette wave (i), then at 1.4537 it would reach 161.8% of its length.

This wave count is invalidated by movement below 1.3294 as minuette wave (ii) may not move beyond the start of minuette wave (i). And once we’ve confirmed that minuette wave (iii) has indeed begun, we may raise the invalidation point to the end of minuette wave (ii), which currently stands at 1.3570.
