FOREXAnalysis: No change: “The break above 99.94 was from a triangle (with an exceptionally shallow E wave). Breaks from triangles are often terminal so this may be the final run before a stronger decline. The width of the triangle (99.94-95.79) can also be used to determine an objective. Add the width to the breakout level and you get 104.09. Since 5/14, the advance has been characterized by waning momentum.”

FOREXTrading Strategy: Considering how one-sided the psychology of this market is…a drop could accelerate quickly as those late to the game exit simultaneously. Would be short below 101.90.

LEVELS: 100.78 101.82 102.40 104.08 104.62 105.92
