Pair found buyers in the blue box between 112.87 – 111.52 and rallied to new highs as expected. With the latest rally from 112.46 – 117.78, pair is showing 5 swings up from 4.16.2017 low which is a bullish sequence and calls for more upside against 112.46 low to complete a double three Elliott wave structure. Pair has reached 0.618 – 0.764 Fibonacci extension area of (W)-(X) between 117.00 – 118.18 which is the typical area for 5th swing to end in a 7 swing sequence. Thus, we are expecting the pair to make a pull back in wave B and continue higher towards 119.95 – 121.72 area. We don’t like selling the pair in proposed wave B pull back and expect dips to find buyers in 3, 7 or 11 swings for continuation higher. If pair drops from here 116.23 – 115.94 would become next area of interest for wave B to complete and buyers to appear to start C leg higher or bounce in 3 waves at least.
