Original strategy: Buy at 1.3300, Target: 1.3400, Stop: 1.3265

New strategy: Buy at 1.3360, Target: 1.3490, Stop: 1.3325

The EUR rose again after finding new buying interest at 1.3270 Thursday, and that action suggests the recent rise is still in progress for a further gain to 1.3490-00, but near term overbought condition should limit upside to 1.3509-16, 38.2% Fibonacci retracement of 1.4940-1.2624 and 100% projection of 1.2975-1.3293 measuring from 1.3198, preventing a sharp move beyond previous resistance at 1.3550, and the risk from there is for a strong pullback to take place.

That said, LTN's trade idea is to buy the EUR on a pullback, but at a higher level. Only below previous resistance at 1.3343 suggests that a top may have formed, and risk weakness to the Ichimoku cloud top now at 1.3288, but break of 1.3270, the previous support and current level of the Ichimoku cloud bottom is needed to confirm.
