I am sure there are several economic & fundamental factors at play in this pair as is always the case in all financial instruments. However, I am not considering these and are analysing price chart from technical perspective alone.
It is hard to make any long term accurate projections using any form of analysis, so price path illustrated on the chart are not going to hold and it should be considered as idealistic schematic diagram for anticipating larger cycle and as a guide in general direction.
Whilst holding bias overall for some time, I was puzzled by its inability to break above resistance recently resulting in complete review and here is a summary of my observations as follows:
On larger time frame we have possible which has defined the price path relatively well and it suggests an over all longer term trend for this pair. (See 3day & price charts below for details)
However, having moved of the low to September 2014 high it has gone into consolidation phase.
Since September high of 2014, it seems so far that the price has been moving in a wider 3 swing zigzags and possibly forming what looks like a contacting triangle (this configuration Elliotwave is called 3-3-3-3-3 triangle, which is a trend continuation consolidation).
If this interpretation is correct, then we can note that Wave A has completed and are in final stage of completing Wave B, having declined from February 2015 high in and are in possible wave 5 of C which could complete around 1.9350 - 1.93 area before reversing to the upside.
trade could be planned and executed with necessary price confirmation in that zone with sensible money management. Previous structural supports could be used to plan for initial stop loss placement. Though it must be noted that this pair is very volatile and tight stops is not advisable so to manage wider stop position size must accordingly be kept small.
It is interesting that the triangle formation is relatively large offering several long and short swing trades as it progress.
1. Approaching lower range of the potential triangle.
2. Larger Wave B is nearly complete with minor wave c of in final stage ie wave 5 soon to complete.
3. Rising and previous structure lows in close proximity where low is anticipated around 1.9350 -1.93.
4. Several fib retracement and extensions and projection proving confluence in the area.
