EURUSD has given us recovery against the September 2021 peak.   Waves A and B red  are showing corrective sequences.  Wave B red has broken the starting point of A red, which makes this Flat Irregular. At this stage we can see that the price has reached equal legs area A-B at 1.14759 which is minimum requirement for a correction to complete. We can already count clear 5 waves up from the recent low: 01.28.- B red,  which is the last leg C red of  proposed (4) blue recovery.   Wave (4) correction looks to be completed at 1.14946 high as Elliott Wave Flat Pattern. We would like to see further separation lower against that peak. As our members know, flat patterns can be tricky to trade. We rather avoid forcing trades when corrections are having forms of Flats.
