FOREXAnalysis: “There is no certainty in market analysis or trading but this is a perfect place for a top. The 50% retracement of the decline from the January high, channel resistance and internal trendline that dates to September 2012 are a formidable barrier. When considering the break of the 4 year triangle (red line on chart is former triangle support) in February, it is possible that an incredibly important top is in place at the May 1 high. Even if a top of importance is in place, there will be bounces along the way…especially in the early going.” The drop to a 5 day low is a good start for bears. 1.5420 could produce a bounce but 1.5320 is lining up to be more important now. That level is channel support and the 2/22 high (38.2% of rally from March low is 1.5410).

FOREX Trading Strategy: Stay short against the high, target half at 1.5320.

LEVELS: 1.5195 1.5320 1.5418 1.5495 1.5555 1.5605
