EURUSD broke out of a triangle pattern in Jan2015 and thereafter it consolidated in a range from 1.04624 to 1.14667 before breaking down in Dec2016 and Jan2017. The pair however faked the breakdown, trapped the bears and rallied.

Where this pair is heading now?

Although the pair has retraced more than 61.8% of the large bull run from Dec2000 to Jul2008 yet I would try to analyze the pair in two possible ways – the bullish and the bearish ways.

Let’s take on these two cases:

1. Breakout Fakeout (BOFO) : This scenario has bullish connotations. It is believed here that the lows made in Dec2016 and Jan2017 was just a BOFO move, which trapped the bears and has been acting as a springboard for the current rally. If this move is to continue the price has to move strongly above the resistance zone Z1 (1.14646 to 1.17140), followed by weak retracement and should continue the up move. The subsequent resistance zones would be Z2 (1.24641 to 1.26004), Z3 (1.38653 to 1.39938), Z4 (1.48145 to 1.49400) and Z5 (1.57550 to 1.60380)

# Mark here that these levels are not just previous peaks but also important confluence points of various Fib. retracement levels.

2. Protraction: This scenario has bearish connotations. Here the pair may try to cross Z1 but faces strong resistance, traps the bulls, continues the down move and breaks the Jan2017 lows of 1.03402. The support may come at 0.96081. The price in this case may settle anywhere between 0.83531 and 0.96081 before a pull back.

Please note that these view are personal and purely technical in nature (without any fundamental bias). Refer smaller time frames for better entries and exits.
All the safe..stay and follow this post.
Comment: Scenario 1 is in play. Zone 1, earlier a resistance can act as a strong support now.
Zone 2 should be the target in next upmove.

Scenario 1 worked perfectly.
How many years did it take to get the mastery over the technical analysis for you?
You attended any classes or it is self-taught?

@AkshathBharathi, It took some time but not much. And it's self taught with lots of study; and offline and live analysis along with real trading.
