From January 3rd and long term forecasts, the last 4 weeks trade ranges are viewed in relation to significant MA”s to complete a full month. To AUD/USD, GBP/USD and EUR/USD was added 5 year averages.

Overall, EUR/USD was the first currency in August 2020 to break above its 5 year average  at 1.1300's then the 10 year average in December 2020 at 1.2100's. EUR/USD is categorized in the class of a risk asset and non USD currency.

EUR/USD's early break to its 5 year average set remainder 27 currencies on  a course of deep perspective as non USD currency pairs had to not only match EUR/USD's break to significant averages but the 1000 pip rise in GBP/USD, 700 for AUD/USD and other non USD currency pairs traded weekly from overbought to overbought and a non normal price circumstance. EUR/USD's break threw normal price markets deeply off course since August 2020.

Non USD currency pairs such as DXY, USD/CAD, USD/CHF and USD/JPY only option since August 2020 was to concur with EUR/USD and non USD rises by trading deeply oversold week to week and to break 5 and 10 year averages.

DXY for example just broke above its 10 year average at 89.95 and contains a long way to travel to the 5 year average at 95.00's.

Today, markets are ready to slowly embark on a deep 3 and 500 pip correction as currency prices traded to lowest and highest depths of oversold and overbought. This will take time as highlighted in the January 3rd post to long term forecasts because currency prices remain in 3 and 400 pip trading ranges and contained within vital breaks to 5 and 10 year averages. No better time than the present to position for the impending correction.

A correction means a break of 5 and 10 year averages to only trade in new 3 and 400 pip trade ranges as markets and all financial instruments range far more than trend. Consider EUR/USD's 1000 pip rise from 1.1300 to 1.2300 by 166 pips per month for 6 months. The same similarities exist among all currency prices.
