A predicted target of this correction is at the level of 1.2930, at least. The structure of the correction itself will show the level where it may finish. An alternative scenario implies that the pair may reach a new minimum again and then start a correction, the fourth structure inside this wave.

Later, in our opinion, the pair may start forming a reversal pattern fr a new ascending movement. The next target is at the level of 1.5790.
