Video on US Dollar Elliottwave Analysis through USDPLN

Short Term Elliott Wave Analysis on USDPLN
USDPLN shows a clear 5 waves impulse Elliott Wave structure from 1.25.2018 low, and there’s also a momentum divergence at the end of wave 5. The current reaction lower in the pair suggests it has likely ended wave (5). Therefore, at minimum, pair should see a 3 waves reaction lower to correct the rally from 1.25.2018 low (3.3075). Due to the positive correlation with Dollar Index, we could say that in the short term, we can see USD weakness in 3 waves at least.
Long Term Elliott Wave Analysis on USDPLN: Bearish View (Scenario #1)
In Scenario #1 (Bearish view) above, the 5 waves rally from 1.25.2018 low is part of wave (C) of FLAT which starts from 9.4.2017 low. Thus, the decline from Dec 2016 peak to 9.4.2017 low ended wave ((A)) as 5 waves impulse Elliott Wave structure. Then wave ((B)) correction is unfolding as an expanded FLAT Elliott Wave structure. In this count, USDPLN is ready to extend lower and will eventually break below 1.25.2018 low. As it has a positive correlation with Dollar Index, then we can see Dollar Index resuming the weakness to new low.
Long Term Elliott Wave Analysis on USDPLN (Scenario #2)
In Scenario #2, USDPLN ended cycle which starts from Dec 2016 high at 1.25.2018 low in wave “w” as a zigzag Elliott Wave structure ((A))-((B))-((C)). Wave “x” correction is taking place as a zigzag structure in which wave (A) ended at 3.8011. In this scenario, pair should pullback in wave (B) then extend higher 1 more leg in wave (C) of “x” to retest the Dec 2016 high. Even in this scenario however, US Dollar should still weaken at least in 3 waves in the short term due to the wave (B) pullback.
USDPLN broke 10 year trend line
It’s worth to mention that USDPLN broke trend line from 2008 low last year. The pair has since recovered and currently sitting at the same broken trend line retesting it. If the break is valid, then ideally the pair doesn’t close above the broken trend line and should continue to extend lower at least 1 more leg.
