Analysis summary

EURUSD – The daily chart shows the basic Elliott Wave pattern, an impulsive rally (counted 1 – 5).  This count suggests a downturn is due. 

The US Dollar Index Chart (DXY) – The daily chart shows an impulsive decline from March at or near an end.

GBPUSD – The Daily chart reveals an impulsive rally from March, which signals a reversal is due. 

GBPUSD – The 4-hour chart reveals an ending diagonal pattern.  It is a terminal pattern that bolsters the idea the rally at larger degree is mature.

GBPUSD – The other Daily chart shows a divergence between price and momentum.  Even an EW purest will look for a momentum divergence during a fifth wave. 

USDCHF – Not thrilled with the daily chart structure, though the potential wave iv triangle and subsequent thrust suggests the decline is near an end.

USDCHF – The 90-minute chart shows an impulsive rally at a lower degree of trend, that hints a turn is underway.

USDJPY – The daily chart reveals a corrective decline from March 2020 that contrasts with the impulsive Euro advance over the same time.  Different counts but the same message. 

USDJPY – The weekly chart shows the EW pattern at a larger degree of trend (EW is fractal in nature). A triangle suggested the decline from March would end above 101.25.

USDJPY – The 6-hour chart reveals an impulsive rally from 102.59, and a corrective setback.  Together these bolster the idea USDJPY has bottomed. 

AUDUSD – The daily chart shows a possible impulse rally at an end.  We sometimes have an alternative count.  In this case, the alternate counts the rise as a 3-wave movement.  The outlook is the same.

USDCAD – The daily chart shows an impulsive decline nearing an end.

USDCAD – The weekly chart shows back-to-back 3-wave movements with a double top.  It limits the EW patterns available to us and is helpful to our analysis.
