AUDCAD: Potential 26-18 Trade

FX:AUDCAD   Australian Dollar/Canadian Dollar
We started watching this towards the end of yesterday's Live Room session and now we're at the point where we can start preparing ourselves on IF, WHEN & HOW to get involved in this potential bearish 26-18 Trade.

(2618 Training Video http://goo.gl/upRvX3)

Aside from that I just got long $EURUSD as well this morning, but the chart would literally be a black chart, which isn't as entertaining as this one.

Also no "Morning Rant" video this morning guys but I will be returning with my usual Thursday Weekend Review video later. See you there!

Hi Akil what was your rationale behind going long on EUR given the macro economic drivers : ECB QE extension/inflation target missed and also FED rate hike all pointing to a lower EUR in this month? Is that something for long term? your explanation will be really appreciated and hopefully new traders like me will benefit from this. Thanks in advance.

I trade off of the technicals and the technicals alone. So although my fundamental view may be different, I have to trade what i see

you need to trust your trading plan. Not fundamentals, not other traders advices...

Nice! I wasnt in the live room yesterday. When I got home from work I reviewed charts and I had set my order @ 9775 late last night before I went to bed. It feels good getting back into the groove of the markets.

It's the potential area in which we would expect the 2618 completion

Hi Akil
Saw a youtube video that you did and you spoke about some other software that could be used for backtesting. Tradingview is no good for backtesting so could you please take this one more time witch software you recommend.

Thanks

I've never spoken about any software for backtesting, might have been a different persons video. I simply use the data from my normal charting platform

ok, maybe not a software but a charting platform were you could rewind the candels and click/play them one by one. I think it was some time ago...
Could it have been something called ninja.

Great find sir! I can't really take this trade sadly because my spread is a bit too big. Or can I? I would have to account for it by placing my entry in the 786 or higher area. You can see my spread drawn in with the two blue lines. Do you Mr. Stokes (or anyone else) have a "spread solution trick" or do you just avoid the trade?

My understanding from the Trade Empowered training video is that RSI is not needed for 2618 trades, only if trading the top or bottom without the 618 retracement.

Correct the RSI does not have to be taken into account for this type of trade

That's what I thought. Saw lots of "professional" trading educators saying otherwise but in my testing RSI shows no difference at all like you say :)
Thank you!

Entries , stops and targets should all be known before entering the trade. If there's a question about where one should be then it's probably not a trade that's in your trading plan and therefore it should probably not be taken in my opinion

It seems as if the author is simply not a fan of pattern trading. Not all strategies are for everyone.
