The EUR/USD decline from 13822 has extended below 13530 and is sharp. Expectations are for a small second wave to bring price back to resistance at 13550-13585.

The fourth wave correction in the EUR/USD is likely complete. The top is close to parallel channel resistance as well as the 38.2% retracement of the decline from 14583 (common end points for fourth waves).

As noted, the decline from 13822 has extended below 13530 and is sharp. Expectations are for a small second wave to bring price back to resistance at 13550-13585.

A rally presents an opportunity to short against the larger fourth wave high in anticipation of a break to a 2010 low and an extended decline into the low 12000s.
