EU to 1.0700 by end of 2018? Extended Bear Scenario for EURUSD

FX:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
This is an update to my previously posted long term plan, linked below.

Currently the Dollar is ripper strong, and the Euro is really struggling.
The last bounce from a wave 3 completion was pretty weak, so I expect a wave 5 down soon.
I would expect some kind of an ABC retrace upon hitting next green zone (wave III )

1.1500 is my next target I guess.
1.1250 by end of Summer still seems plausible.
1.0700 gap close may well happen by end of 2018.

I will update and fine tune the target ranges as I see developments.

Here is the previous plan, which is still mostly in effect for me, but EU looks even more bear that I expected at that time:
May 21
Comment: Looks like next target will be easily achieved.
US might buy in the morning, but by mid week imo.
May 29
Comment: Next target within spitting distance.
EU cutting through some solid support zones.
Next one below may or may not hold but should slow it down.
May 29
Comment: Here we are, will bounce? even a dead cat?
May 29
Comment: Seems to be taking a breather at least.
At a lousy 11.618? wow!
May 29
Comment: First target for Wave III hit.

Close up.
Notice how it stopped BEFORE the round 1.15000.
Instead, it was a Fib Resonance (a 1.618 ) that acted.

Now is time to look for a bounce, to short again!
EU news is uncertain (Italy), and USD is very strong.
But expecting a USD correction, EU breather, then onward and downward.
Maybe a bounce to the zone above and then down again? will be watching.

OR maybe it just belows through 1.1500 and keeps dropping? Fine by me, many shorts are still open :)
May 29
Comment: EU really struggling.
Keeps beating on support, like it wants to test 1.15000
May 29
Comment: If 1.1500 breaks, nearest support is 50 pips below and not a strong one...
May 29
May 30
Comment: Got a little bounce as expected.
Not a strong looking bounce, but maybe a choppy incline to start wave IV?
May 30
Comment: Pretty good bounce so far, with a clear impulse wave.
But I suspect might be short lived.
Some pretty strong resistance coming up just above.
Will definitely retrace a bit from there, question is whether it will turn back down
May 30
Comment: Time to gauge the retrace as expected
May 30
Comment: Maybe something like this?
May 30
Comment: Ouch, that was a pretty hard wave A.
Not looking good
May 30
Comment: Adjusting wave C target a little lower.
If that breaks, the 'retrace' might be start of 'return' to downtrend.
May 30
Comment: wow, maybe EU will punch its way out after all.
Still a lot of resistance above, but has been hit a couple times now...
May 30
Comment: EU continues to beat against resistance, really wants to break it.
That would be fine, as per my original plan a good bounce was expected.
But looking skiddish still, with a laborious wave 5 perhaps.
May 30
Comment: EU bounce looking good.
Broke resistance, and looks like a classic wave 3=3.618 to wave 5=5.618 move.
Still a bear here, but this bounce was part of my plan, so as long as it keeps doing what I was hoping for, I am happy.
May 30
Comment: Pretty good bounce on EU, as expected.
We see a clear 5 wave impluse.
Interesting that it stopped at the Gap top, EXACTLY!
So it may well be time to resume down trend after gap confirmation.

But this retrace could go higher, perhaps something like this to test 1.1800
May 31
Comment: Looks like we got the ABC as anticipated.
News out of Italy is whipsawing this, but notice the Fib zones are still in control.
Jun 01
Comment: EU might end the week at 1.18, if NFP is weak or Italy news is good
Jun 06
Comment: Approaching my possible wave IV target of around 1.18000

Close up, looks like target 1.18033 (give or take a 1/10 of pip) :)
Jun 06
Comment: Still chugging along to my target, 1.18033, where my further shorts await.
Jun 06
Comment: PING. There we are.
Hit the 4.618 of local fib, very close 3.618 of larger Fib.

I am thinking consolidation in this zone for a bit, then continue downtrend exactly per the original plan.
Jun 07
Comment: The original wave IV top I had (in the main live chart) was 1.1815
That was to account for possible stop hunt above 1.1800
Asia already passed ast 1.1800 ever so slightly but no spike of stops.
And the EURO looks to have a pretty good head of steam.
ie: I am not so confident wave IV will end here, but watching with interest.
Jun 07
Comment: EU spiked a little above my anticipated wave IV end.
But maybe that was the stop-sweep spike I was looking for.
Jun 07
Comment: Interesting behavior after spike above resistance.
Obeying the fibs, but the drop is NOT looking powerful, so might be just profit taking before further rise. Watching closely.
Jun 08
Comment: EU down move looks to be gaining momentum.
See chart for clues gathered from the same fib drawn in last pic.
Jun 08
Comment: Yikes, blew right through the 5.618 and into my blew Fib zone.
Perhaps was a stop run before London Open, or maybe just a dead cat bounce right now?
Jun 08
Comment: This ABC correction up for wave IV looks quite done me.
It reached a whole bunch of 618's, all extensions of pulses up.
You just cant walk past that many 618's without retreating some.
Jun 08
Comment: I am thinking 1.1750 next
Jun 08
Comment: am surprised by this 4.618 bounce, when the momentum said the 5.618 at 1.175, thinking it will still get there
Jun 08
Comment: There is it, the 1.175 target and 5.618 Fib I was expecting
Jun 08
Comment: Ruh Roh, if EU does not get back above 1.175 quickly, then 1.172 is in focus
Jun 08
Comment: Interesting, the 7.618 extension bounced it up.
The bounce shows some strength as it came back to the 2.618 almost.
I am thinking maybe Monday it will test the 2.618.
Jun 12
Comment: Original plan still on track.
It fell to where I expected, then bounce to where I expected.
Now it LOOKS to be turning back down with several bearish daily candles.
BUT, I would not be surprised to see an ABC wave shooting up to the Red Zone (1.1906 - 1.1933) before turning back down.

Big ECB news this week, so I think the big movement will wait until then.
But the in the meantime I will keep updating my scalps on ny other EU ideas.
Jun 14
Comment: ECB decision taken as dovish by market.
Looks like next target is on the table now.
Jun 22
Comment: Added to short position per this plan:
Stops jambed at break even on new shorts, hoping they survive long enough to take some profits and rest ride along.
Jun 28
Comment: NEW Clue about EU future.
Notice the picture perfect .618 retrace/rejection.
That rejection was quite strong, so a .382 extension to 1.1375 is almost assured.
This is a LOT of support at 1.1500, but it was previously tested/weakened.
If 1.1500 breaks, the next STRONG support is 1.11000

Heading to 1.07 soon ?
@yansy84, I don't know about 'soon', but I have not seen any positive news out of EuroUnion to change the trend. (no interest rates forthcoming, no political certainty achieved, etc). So I remain a bear, and still image 1.07 down the road. We are currently in a wave IV, which is usually pretty choppy (corrective) and might go as high as 1.20 (unlikely but possible imo). Then, what happens in wave V down will tell me/us a lot more about eventual target.
i agree
you have perfect levels! Always hit perfect. Do you recommend any position for a short entry?
@dr90210, thank you for compliment. As for entry, I do not like to make recommendations because everyone has different time frames and risk tolerance in mind.
If long term, and willing to risk a 100pip loss, I would enter short right now. If short term and looking for 30pip stop or less, I would wait for retest of the larger fibs then short....
dr90210 EuroMotif
@euromotives, thank you very much!
1.15 looks like its possible as long as the current tight channel is not broken.
EuroMotif mortdiggiddy
@mortdiggiddy, Nice channel! and Agreed, 1.15 ought to produce a nice bounce. If not, it would be a very bad sign to short heavy IMO :)
i think this will happen
EuroMotif AhmadAlsady
@AhmadAlsady, Looks good to me. There will indeed be a lot of resistance to further climb. And that exact gap close is like a one-way road sign almost :)
