The pair has pulled off the low of the range (1.4800), and looks
prepared to move back higher to test some former highs. This will
either be confirmed or rejected based on movement through the following
A move back above 1.4890 indicates movement back above 1.4900 and a
test of recent swing highs at 1.4930-1.4940. We have trendline support
above this at 1.4950-1.4965, this will also act as resistance. Beyond
is resistance at 1.4980-1.4990.
Keep in mind that old support and resistance become new resistance and
support respectively if a level is moved through and then retreats
back. Movement through one level indicates movement to the next, and
failures are likely to move back to other levels mentioned. Support and
resistance does not mean rates will move exactly to the price
mentioned, rather they are profit taking opportunities in those areas
(or possibly entry prices if moved through) as retracements are more
likely around those levels. This is misunderstood by many traders, and
I will elaborate on it on an upcoming post on my blog.

A drop back below 1.4840 is our first indication of a move lower. The
trend line this move would break is short term and not of high
importance. The closest major level is 1.4800. A break below that would
A break below 1.4800, if it is legit, will find support at 1.4770,
1.4740-1.4730 then 1.4700. If the break is not legit and just a stop
run, it will likely tucker out by 1.4780-1.4770 and then reverse. I say
that only we because we all know there are a pile of stops sitting down
Keep in mind that since we know stop hunting is a common practice,
whether intentional or not, and is a strategy in and of itself. If
there is a level that is likely to have many stops it, it seems to
create a gravitational pull and can result in a quick surge but often
retraces. Watch and see if you see this happening around critical
levels. If there is interest I can post a article on how to trade this
phenomenon. Have a great day trading everyone!
