The overall result of the candlestick calculation based on the weekly chart: the price will most likely move in an upward trend, both without the first lower shadow (Monday - up) and the second upper shadow (Friday - up) in the weekly white candlestick.

The first upward target is set at 1.3878 (yellow dotted line) – the pullback level of 38.2%. After reaching this level, the price may further move up to the target of 1.3945 (yellow dotted line) – the pullback level of 50%. When this line is tested, the upward trend may extend to the next target of 1.4010 (yellow dotted line) – the pullback level of 61.8%.

As an alternative, the price from the level of 1.3884 (closing of the last weekly candlestick) will decline to the target of 1.3665 (yellow dashed line) – a lower fractal. After testing this line, the price may rise again to the target 1.3822 (blue bold line) – the resistance line of the descending channel.
