The EUR/USD shows a lateral behavior during the last weeks. The price is stuck between resistance 1.1180 and support 1.1054. Will it break down? The Elliott Wave analysis is a market map, like a GPS that allows you to reach the destination without getting lost. Imagine being able to navigate market cycles using any strategy, but increasing the likelihood of success. Elliott Wave is the tool that enhances all types of trading and helps the trader to improve the entries and exits in the market.

A group of traders gathers to discuss the possible scenarios of the EURO. Some say it will rise, while others that will go down and a small group in the corner of the room votes it will remain trapped in the sideways channel. Who is right? It is not possible to know the future of the price action with 100% success, but it is possible to have more than 60% / 70% success through technical analysis. Let’s see what our Elliott Wave analysis says in the EUR/USD and build a solid trading plan.

Elliott Wave EUR/USD Analysis

In the four-hour chart, the price behavior is lateral, and it got stuck in the middle of so many news that has happened in recent weeks. While the stock market is reaching space after boosting like a NASA rocket, the EURO has failed to decide in which direction will take off. The chaos we see in the four-hour chart represents a corrective cycle in the Elliott Wave theory. We are in a triple Zigzag, denoted by WXYXZ waves in orange. Where the “X” wave is active and near completion, to find its end, the price must first fall beyond the 1.1054 support. Then when it goes back up and close above 1.1054, the trade setup will be ready for taking a buy trade.

Once the price takes off, the target is resistance 1.1180. This cycle would correspond to the orange “Z” wave. As long as the forecast is fulfilled, when the price exceeds resistance 1.1180, return and close below 1.1180, we will have the setup for a short trade. This short is the main trade, and its target 1.0880.
