AUDCAD: Bearish Cypher. I think it's a LOSER...But I'm In

FX:AUDCAD   Australian Dollar/Canadian Dollar
We've had a hell of a ride as of late on the AUDCAD             . Through some difficult pattern trading weeks this pair has been the one keeping my head above water. We now have yet another Cypher pattern that just completed minutes ago.

In all honestly, I'm fully expecting a loser on this one. Why? Well it's just the numbers. Even with the Cypher having a completion rate up to 75-80% 5 in a row without a loss seems a little unlikely. Will this stop me from taking the trade? Heck no! It's a "GOOD" trade and that's all i look for in the market. If you need another example of this check out the piece i just wrote on yesterday's USDCAD             trade that I didn't want to take "the Best Type of Trade" http://tradeempowered.com/the-best-type-of-trade/

Either way, stops need to be above the X leg, i'd say at minimum 0.9685s and initial targets (assuming we turn around on a dime) would be down in the 9545s area.

Good luck with this one traders and remember we trade the plan not our emotions!

Exactly and when we can eliminate these false expectations from our trades ("it has to win"), it makes it that much easier to follow our rules..

Good call Akil. Judging from the explosive move of Price Action from the C leg to the D point Completion. We could see pricee continuing higher. Hey a trade is a trade and as long as a person follows their plan, all is good.

I'd love to hear a definition of "explosive move" but yeah, we could go higher...we could also stop on a dime and fall. We never know, all we can do is put ourselves in a position where we have the edge.

The bc is not supposed to be maximum 1.4 ? If you ignore the spike and take the "close" low is a cypher from what I know, but I don't think it's ok.... It's a question, not a debate, I don't trade harmonic to much so I don't have experience

For a cypher the C leg cannot close below the 1.414, it's okay if the wick touches and passes it.

Sorry I think i misunderstood your question. Yes you are correct if you ignore the spike it would not be a valid cypher as the 1.272 would not have been hit.

Hey Akil. I was eyeballing this last night and I set my limit order. Don't shatter my dreams! Although we have had an amazing past couple of weeks with this pair

GOOD DAY AKIL.

Just a Question. My B to C leg does not finish at a 127.0% if I draw in my fibinacci's. Is this still a valid cypher pattern as I know you guys teach that it has to at least reach the 127.0% extension?

If it doesn't hit the 127.2 then it's invalid. Please make sure you're drawing it on correctly, I've seen a lot of trader that sure the tradingview "pattern tool" come up with wrong fibonacci levels

I think once a trader accepts the fact that they are going to take a lot of losses throughout there career it makes it much easier to handle them mentally

as the lose still 2% or even less it always be a nice joke to me since the win is at least 3% just let's call it FOREX TAXES lol

The fibs does but it don´t look very "harmonic" in the way the first retracement is so close. But well have not back tested this pair yet so don´t know its potential outcome in the long run
