EURUSD – COULD RETRACE IN LONGER TERM BULLISH CYCLE

FX:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
EURUSD             has posted a spike low in March 2015 and subsequently has failed to close below that low on monthly charts on last 2 attempts. This suggests that potentially an important low might be in place and that the EURUSD             could continue much higher from here over several months if not more in longer term bullish cycle. See monthly chart below for the details

The 1st week of May is full of major scheduled events including Fed Rate, French Election over the weekend and geopolitical tension. Factors that could provide additional volatility and which could easily change the analysis described.

However, since Jan 2017 low, we can note the following:
1. Price has formed a potential leading diagonal of 3-3-3-3-3 structure (impulsive move of the low) which is likely complete. Last week price gaped up on open and then stalled. It could for a platform to accelerate the move up but this is less likely.
2. It has run in to structural resistance, which was previously a horizontal support.
3. Daily RSI at potential over bought level.
4. Bearish pitchfork’s sliding parallel (Brown) in proximity.
5. COT Report suggests that the Small speculators have just gone net long and are likely to be chopped.
6. Seasonally, May is very bullish for USD which has completed a corresponding bearish leading diagonal (see chart below).

If the above holds true then we could retrace in a zigzag towards $1.06 – $1.05 zones before a new bullish cycle could develop.

Conclusion:
a) Any longs should be either exited or have tight stops.
b) Short position could be initiated with very clearly defined risk ie just above the high of the last week.
