This chart is updated from last week. The text is unchanged. Most of the correction (rally) is probably complete in price but not time. Slightly more than 50% of the decline has been retraced in just over a week's time. The decline from the April high consumed 43 days. I'll dig deeper into the statistics but a quick look at corrective rallies that occur following 5 wave declines from significant tops (1987 and 2007 for example) reveal that the corrective rally tends to consume 1/3 - 1/2 of the time that the decline did. In other words, one would expect the rally from the low to take roughly 14 to 21 days. Projected from the 6/4 low, we get possible topping dates on 6/22 and 7/3.

This is updated from2 weeks ago and last week. At this point, it's quite clear that the final leg of the corrective rally that began at the 6/4 low is underway towards 137.55. There are also several gaps to keep in mind at 135.53, 136.99, and 138.99. Equivalent 100% extension levels are 1368.93 for the S&P 500 Index and 12918.65 for the Dow.

AUDUSD focus remains on the 10225/10240 area (April low, 50% retracement of decline from February high, 100% extension of rally from 9580 and 13 week average) but the advance, notably from 9849, is mature (5 waves). A pullback could test 10050 in wave 4 of C before the assault on the mid 10200s later in the week (see next chart for short term wave count).
