why are you asking ? Nobody know, but it looks to me like it is trying to hit 1.5250 .. you might get a bounce from there, but a bounce, NOT a change in trend. AND ONE HARDER to break will be 1.5180 ... i dont know what you are trying to do, if you Bought and you are in loss or what ?

1.535 will now act as a ceiling and drive the Bears down in the comming two days...

what i meant is that we will get a BOUNCE when we reach 1.5250 and if you are brave enough,, you might put your stop loss below 1.5240 and take profits when you feel it. And will also get a Bounce when we reach 1.5180 , and do the same. My view, when everybody called me Stupi* and price was 1.5550 was exactly what is happening right now, so follow my view or not. It will go Up to 1.61 , its a target and it will be met, BUT we will need to Swing Down to get more Power to go up. Swing was planned for 1.50 - 1.52 ,, you can search my posts. Good luck to you
