A bullish bat pattern has completed on this pair and a .382 retracement would take us right back to the previous support shelf that has been proven strong and that should now become resistance. Hence I don't think that we can get more out of this than a retest of that level.

As it is a bat pattern, RR is good, stops below 1.5189, I would even suggest a 1 ATR stop @ 1.5170 as we are trading a pattern on the 240 chart.

Good luck and may the pips be with you.

It's been a very slow week for me, but luckily Jason is picking up the slack. Going into Friday's Job Report I have no intention of entering any new positions aside from this potential bullish bat pattern on the Kiwi. NZDUSD is in a very interesting position as our HTF trend has bounced off previous structure resistance, yet our LTF trend has recently created a NSH and is retesting previous structure support. Consolidation perhaps?? Hope so since that would work well for pattern traders. VERY IMPORTANT. IF this trade does not trigger before tomorrow mornings top-down analysis THEN I will remove all orders as I want no parts of the crap shoot that is the Non-farm Payroll report.

As always it's Thursday so that also means the release of my weekly WEEKEND REVIEW video. (link at bottom)) In this week's video "Dollars Don't Matter" I talk about this NZDUSD trade, how we can help each other out in the initial phases of backtesting an updated version of an inside bar breakout strategy that i used to trade, and of course an update of how Jason and i have down int he Syndicate. here's a clue...I haven't done much lol

Watch-out España traders, the IBEX is challenging the major key long term sideways resistance or ceiling. Typically, in sideways markets, we expect price to reverse to the downside. However, this time might be different, as the price test the level for sixth time. The latest test(March 2) was followed by a minor pullback and a bullish pin bar.

I would think twice before going short at that resistance for now. why? For the first time , the ECB is pumping money for free with its new asset purchase program. History and the FED have taught us what happens to equities when central banks go full throttle.

We might see a reactive correction but i advise waiting for a candlestick confirmation for such scenario and look only for limited downside potential.

A breakout above 11235 resistance with at least a weekly closing would confirm the bullish breakout. I wont suggest targets for this scenario as this idea is just a general opinion...

This is an update to the trade idea linked under Related Ideas, where I had spotted a bearish Gartley pattern on the 4H timeframe of this pair. For a further description of that trade I refer to the link.

Since then the price printed a new C point for this pattern, widening the potential reversal zone (due to the shift of the AB=CD pattern which is a key harmonic level). Price has now travelled 50% from C towards the (updated) reversal zone.

The key characteristics of the trade have not changed. There are still 134 pips to be made (if this pair follows the script) and the trade still has a reward – risk ratio of 2.0!

A further move down of this pair could bring us to the completion of a bulish bat pattern. As always, bat patterns have a pretty good RR ratio, target 1 being approx 1.5 and target 2 approx. 2.5 times the pips we risk.

As this is a setup on the 240 chart, I use a 1ATR stop loss under X.

* UPDATE : This pattern has now completed

EURUSD, 240 Neutral

Weekly Timeframe: The weekly timeframe shows that price has broken below a major weekly Quasimodo support level at 1.1109, and, as a consequence hit weekly demand coming in at 1.0760-1.0988.

Daily Timeframe: Yesterday saw the Euro take out daily demand at 1.1045-1.1127. This consequently drove the market south into a daily swap area seen below at 1.1016-1.0952 (located just within the weekly demand area mentioned above at 1.0760-1.0988).

4hr Timeframe: The latest coming in from the 4hr timeframe reveals that price closed below the mid-level number 1.1050, which, subsequently, saw price viciously spike north up to a 4hr decision-point supply area seen at 1.1114-1.1143 (this move was likely a result of negative unemployment numbers coming out of the US). Following this, price continued south down to the 1.1000 psychological threshold, where, at the time of writing, supportive pressure is currently being seen.

With all of the above taken into account, we feel that the Euro is trading in oversold territory at the moment and could be ready for a bounce higher. Nevertheless, before this happens, we feel there’s a good chance that price will challenge the 1.1000 level once more, although this time we expect a push deeper to be seen, thus taking out more stops i.e. sell stops (liquidity) for pro money to buy into.

With that said, our team’s main focus in this market today will be to watch how price behaves if a retest of 1.1000 is seen. However, please do keep in mind that we have the mighty NFP release later on, which, as you probably know, could distort any technical signal seen, so do trade cautiously.

Current buy/sell orders:

• Buy orders: 1.1000 (Predicative stop-loss orders seen at: dependent on where one confirms this level).

• Sell orders: Flat (Predicative stop-loss orders seen at: N/A).

TSLA, D Long
1 212
There are many variables shown on this graph, the most important one is the fact that TSLA is at the lowest PSR (Price-to-Sales Ratio) going back to the summer of 2013 when it bottomed near 6 times sales. TSLA is now at 7.9 times sales and could very well be suffering from the new round of cars at the Geneva Auto Show where the Volkswagen Diesel Electric looks stunning in both styling and raw power from dual electric motors and relatively low cost to the good old Model-S and Model-D. There is nothing like good old fashioned competition in the marketplace. Tesla is facing it from all fronts and investors are nervous. For now, until profits roll in, and until the Model-X (gull-wing SUV crossover) is sold, TSLA is just "holding on".

What I'm seeing here is that TSLA is in a confirmed downtrend and it has fallen a similar percentage amount as it had in the fall of 2013 (See -40% drop) and the spring of 2014 (See the -34% drop) with its current 37% drop off of the high back in September which happened after a great earnings report and a string of analyst initiates and upgrades and very high targets set. The current correction has seen almost 14 days in a row where volume and price range expanded on the downside signifying strong selling by investors and traders. That kind of continuous selling should be alerting us to look for a bottom down here somewhere, which is why I have this as a "LONG" idea here.

The old level of valuation isn't holding at 10 times sales, so it is trying to find somewhere down here to hold.

Call me a die-hard fan of Tesla as I know I'd like to own one. If every one of my subscribers here would just send Tesla $1 each month, then I could lease 3 or 4 of them. One for me and the rest for you, in a lottery of my lucky subscribers. TradingView, can you manage that project for me? (I'm kind of kidding, but I'd love to see that happen).

Cheers.

Maybe a tad late on publishing this one as the pattern has already completed and we already saw some upwards price action, But ... we could see a double bottom formation here giving us another change to enter this long trade with a very good Risk/Reward ratio. Something to keep an eye on if it fits your trading rules.

If it does not go back into the Potential Reversal Zone I stay away from it as it would mess up the RR.

Comments welcome. Good luck and may the pips be with you !

1. As a novice trader, one of the biggest mistakes you can make, especially after having had a number of successful trades, is thinking you know what you are doing when you actually don´t. This will be the cause of every trading error you have the potential to make.

2. It takes absolutely no skill at all to place a winning trade. It does to consistently do it.

3. Be unoriginal. Save the innovative strategies and custom indicators for when you have learned how to trade.

4. Do not judge a trade on its result. A good trade can turn out a loser. A bad trade can turn out a winner.

5. Don’t focus too much on making money in the beginning. As you are still improving, it should not be your goal to make money. It should be your goal to make good trades.

6. In trading, there is no supervisor or manager reviewing every decision before it’s made. Success, for better or worse, is totally self-dependent. This is not for everybody. Find out if it’s for you.

7. Though this site has many of its members emphasizing on technical analysis, don’t underestimate the impact of fundamentals on price action. Understanding them will increase your edge in trading.

8. Don’t overemphasize the importance of finding the best trading system. Equally important are psychology and money management.

9. Online chat rooms can be good learning tools and from time to time very entertaining, but beware of entering trades that are not part of your trading plan or trade setups that you have not studied for yourself.

10. Eliminate your mistakes. Do this on a daily basis, mistake per mistake. Eventually you will run out of mistakes to make.

Although there could be a correction in between, it may not be over.

The top could be at the end of the summer around 420.

That would complete a 640% rally since 2009. Remarkable.

The final stages of such rallies can be asymptotic and overshoot.. That could be in the next few month (Maybe after an intermediary correction).

After positive fundamental news from US and a strong rally we can expect some retracement.
This bat could work very well
The last resistance from W1 and M1 will be hard to break so i will place SL above.
Good luck.

SPY, D Short

Here's a new DISCOVERY - to start the uptrend from the lowest high (not necessarily the lowest low). With trend calculated in this more logical way, it makes everything get CRYSTAL CLEAR in the SPY here. This observation makes the uptrend start at an earlier date, which puts a few more days at the mode for the uptrend and allows a little more advance and then watch this:

1. The red box on the downtrend formed a 15 period mode around the 202 level, which FAILED to create the necessary drop to the 193 area. So, what did the market do? It rallied for 15 periods once it spent an entire session above 202. Look at the red arrow with 15 on top. That is when the failure-time expired.

2. The purple box is the uptrend from the "LOWEST HIGH" in January. From that point, 10 days formed around the 205 level and set up the rally for 10 periods starting on the 11th (marked with a purple arrow UP). NOTE HOW 10 EXPIRED RIGHT AT THE HIGHEST LOW OF THE RALLY. That is excellent.

3. The blue box is a mode that was forming that would launch us into the next advance, but it failed to build to 10 or 11 to continue the accumulation and that implies that the buyers have run out of power and the sellers are in control.

4. The purple box FSILED TO REACH 215 as implied by the accumulation - so that means the buyers are weak here and need to be tested.

5. NOTE my proprietary RangeMove (RgMov) indicator which is FLASHING A VERY OMINOUS DANGER SIGNAL because it has gone to a 2-month LOW while the price action is very close to a 2-month high. Why is this happening and what does it mean? It means that lately, the price action has been mostly on the downside. If you look at the price action since Feb 17th you will notice that mostly the entire day of trading has been on the downside. It gaps down, and then trades up from there, but the net-net of it is that the trading action is to the downside. That IMPLIES heavy selling by someone. It could be anyone at this point, we don't really know.

6. NOTE the Range Expansion to the downside today and on Tuesday. These are signs that the "PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE" is DOWN.

So everyone, there is support down at the last mode at 205, then at the 15 period mode at 202. If it punches through there then look for 193, which was implied in the last decline.

This is quite a collection of events collaborating the decline we are in at the moment. STAY TUNED!!!

This is rather subjective and there are different ways to look at it. This is the count I feel the most comfortable with (This is not Elliott).

I think SPX is awaiting a IV and a V.

The IV awaited is to be coupled with II (Sep12/Nov12: 11%, 8 weeks)

Including the correction and the rally, the 09 rally could have another 6 months to go.

Anyway. which ever count you use, the apex is becoming very narrow and it is unlikely SPX is going to respect that many month to 2200.

A decisive break of the cone is imminent - Question of weeks. This is often the case in wave IV before a V outside of the cone.

I'll mark myself down as long more as a technicality then a true conviction. In my opinion the charting suggest this is bullish, but I like to interpret our break through the multi-decade wedge resistance as a critical point (yet to indicate a particular direction). Despite every suit on CNBC calling the fall of the dollar, I would argue on a historical basis were at a relatively low point (especially if you were to consider the dollar index in gold denominated terms, go chart "dxy/gc1!"). Given these circumstances and an apparently bullish break, Regan and Bush dollar values don't seem too far away.Perhaps mullets will have their comeback too. Ive outlined a smaller falling wedge to give some context as to timing, which would confirm a successful third attempt to break resistance as a catalyst for a rally.

I expect us to continue beyond this point into the high 90's before consolidating, and perhaps retesting the old resistance. Should the old resistance hold as support I would comfortably by into your favorite Dollar ETF. Should it re-enter the wedge pattern I would expect a rather quick fall to mid 80's, hammering out a bottom and completing a second leg of a wave theory retracement.

Nominal measured move of $78 takes us to $170, percentage measured move of 48% takes us to $140. First pit stop is at $118, the most recent high in 2001 and would definitely be my limit sell if it managed to get there. Let's see which way it goes and consider it's affect on gold and exporter stocks.

With King Dolla Strength and the decent NFP print I fomoed myself in at 120.1 before this blew up to 121+ !!!!

However as our resident bear Peter Schiff pointed out "The number of Americans not in the labor force surged to 98.9 million, a new record high as the participation rate dropped to 62.8%".

Still it didn't stop the DXY making nice gains today. The trade is risk free now with trailing stops set.
