The EUR/USD is building a bearish pullback within the long-term uptrend. Price action is expected to build either an ABC or ABCDE triangle pattern (pink) on the daily chart.

The EUR/USD seems to have completed a wave 3 (purple) at the recent high. This means that the current pullback is likely a wave 4 (purple).

  • Waves 4 are usually shallow retracements. 
  • An ABC zigzag could take price down quite soon (orange arrows).
  • A sideways correction could be an ABCDE pattern (grey arrows).
  • Waves 4 respect the 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level most of the time. 
  • Other key levels are the 23.6% and 50% Fibonacci levels.
  • These Fib levels are expected to act as support (blue boxes). 
  • They could also create a larger bounce for an uptrend continuation (blue arrows).

Only a break below the 50% Fib would put the uptrend on hold (yellow circle). An even deeper retrace would invalidate it (red circle).

On the 4 hour chart, the bearish price action respected the previous bottom and made a bullish bounce. This seems to confirm a bullish ABC (orange) in wave B (grey). 

A break above the 21 ema zone could confirm a 5 wave (orange) pattern up in wave C (grey) to complete wave B (pink).

A bearish bounce at or below the 61.8% Fibonacci level makes a bearish ABC zigzag more likely. A deeper retracement towards the 78.6% Fib or higher makes an ABC flat or ABCDE triangle more likely (light green letters).
