Did USD Just Bottom? Did EUR Just Top?

By Elliott Wave International

Late last week -- and then again on Monday -- EURUSD, the world's most traded forex pair, fell sharply. In fact, the euro lost almost 200 pips, or two cents, against the buck.
Here's a chart of that decline, copied from our Currency Pro Service (partial Elliott wave labels shown):

Our Currency Pro Service editor, Jim Martens, just posted a new video for FreeWeek participants where he explained why he's bullish on the USD. So this reversal certainly fits the "big picture."
However, forex markets rarely move in a straight line. Even if the euro top is in, temporary rallies are inevitable.

Indeed, on Tuesday morning, EURUSD rebounded -- but the recovery stalled after retracing a Fibonacci 38.2% of the prior decline and within the area of the fourth wave of one lesser degree. Again, this Currency Pro Service chart illustrates this attampted rally for you:

The fourth wave of lesser degree often acts as resistance -- and appears to have done so in this instance.
