FOREXAnalysis: Wrote last Monday that “action since 5 am on 6/20 could compose a 4th wave flat correction in which case the AUDUSD would top before .9433 and register one more low before a sharp reversal. Make no mistake, we are close and I want to be long…but timing is critical (always is).” The AUDUSD topped last Wednesday at .9344 before dropping to a new low. The double inside day Monday and Tuesday along with Sunday’s open at the low is consistent with a low. What’s more, the low (so far) of .9112 is just 2 pips below a measured level (161.8 of recent range).

FOREXTrading Strategy: Given the reasons cited, I’m long with a .9110 stop. If stopped out then will look for a low near the next measured level of .8984.

LEVELS: .8860 .8984 .9112 .9194 .9265 .9329
