FOREXAnalysis: Focus is still higher for a larger correction of the decline from the January high. The congestion zone prior to the 2/20 decline of 1.5415-1.5550 is of interest. The rally from the low would consist of 2 equal legs at 1.5461. Near term support is 1.5157/98.

FOREX Trading Strategy: Went long on 4/4 close. Risk on the trade is 4/4 low at 1.5032. Weakness below there would leave the advance in 3 waves, suggesting more consolidation at best and resumption of larger bear trend at worst.

LEVELS: 1.5032 1.5090 1.5192 1.5344 1.5415 1.5461
