What you see on the main chart are 2 patterns: a COMPLETED and a POTENTIAL . Now as of the time of this posting, they are both still valid. IF prices break below both patterns making them both invalid, then look for prices to head down to the . point (shown in black) and go no further! Why? Because according to my wave count, that point is the end of the wave (i) prior and this retrace is wave (iv) which cannot end inside of the wave (i).

SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION:
Pretty simple really. If my wave counts are correct, this pair is still due for one....more.....push to the upside before starting on a long journey back down in a corrective cycle that could last for months. But for now, it's a good opportunity to grab more pips by following the trend. Ending waves of a cycle are actually the easiest to trade because you know you are near the end. Not guessing. As a matter of fact, if my wave counts are correct, I already KNOW where it might end but know for sure what point it CAN'T go beyond.
I'm hopping on board this last train up. It's also easy to know if I am wrong. If prices drop below the .618 limit, then I will know my count is wrong. In which case, I will again re-assess the situation. But if I am right..........$$$$!
