Elliott Wave Setup Helps EURUSD Add 325 Pips

What will EURUSD bring next week? That is the subject of discussion in our next premium analysis due out late Sunday!

EURUSD has been under pressure for over two years now. The pair reached 1.2556 in February 2018, but has been making lower lows and lower highs ever since. Yet, the past couple of weeks painted a different picture.

Between May 18th and May 29th, the euro surged 325 pips against the U.S. dollar. In those ten trading days EURUSD rose from 1.0820 to as high as 1.1145. And while hardly anyone can explain the rally with any certainty, there was a way for traders to actually stay ahead of it. No, it had nothing to do with the economy or geopolitics. Take a look below.

Attractive risk/reward Elliott Wave setup emerged in EURUSD two weeks ago

The chart above was included in the premium analysis sent to subscribers before the open on Monday, May 18th. It revealed a bullish Elliott Wave setup, formed by a five-wave impulse up to 1.1148 and a simple a-b-c zigzag correction. It is interesting to notice that wave ‘b’ of the correction was an expanding flat.

According to the theory, once a correction is over, the larger trend resumes in the direction of the impulsive sequence. We though wave ‘c’ was over at 1.0767. So as long as this level was intact, it made sense to expect more strength in EURUSD. The updated chart below shows how the situation unfolded.

EURUSD adds 325 pips in two weeks

The pair started rising almost immediately. On Thursday, May 21st, it took out 1.1000. A small dip dragged it back down to 1.0871 on May 25th, but it couldn’t stop the bulls. Fast-forward to May 29th and EURUSD was hovering above 1.1140 again. 1.0767 was never breached.
