AUDUSD - What is a Harmonic Breakout?

FX:AUDUSD   Australian Dollar/U.S. Dollar
Hey guys, just sharing some stuff I learnt from Scott.

This is an example of a bearish shark setup on AUDUSD             .

It has perfect confluence at 0.7645 with a 113 and 1618             fib confluence.

I missed the 1st opportunity to sell last Friday and I have been patiently waiting for a retracement for a type 2 entry.

I would have hit SL on this trade if i executed this trade using a pending order.

When I started trading Harmonics many years back, I used to just execute my trades by using a pending order which I learnt from Jason Stapleton.

It led to a less than 50% winning rate for me for many years but I was still able to squeak out some profits as I enjoyed a couple of excellent risk to reward trades in most years.

After meeting Scott Carney this year, I managed to fine-tune my trade execution to avoid losing trades like this.

This is what I do now.

1. 90% of my trades are now market orders, only 10% of my trades are executed with pending orders.
2. Always draw my big ED channel on the daily/h4 timeframe, I only execute trades which are near the extremes of the Ed channel.
3. Your setup should be aligned the the ED channel. Sloping down? Look to sell. Sloping up? Look to buy.
4. I like to wait for RSI divergence confirmation at the PRZ before executing my trades.
5. This enabled me to improve my winning % to more than 60% over the past 3 months.

What is a Harmonic breakout?

This was mentioned in Vol             2 of Scott's book.
Harmonic breakout is when the PRZ of a harmonic setup is being broken out strongly within one or a few candlesticks .
This signifies that the market is no longer respecting this PRZ zone and it wants to go further.

I expect AUDUSD             to challenge $0.77 in the upcoming days/weeks after this breakout is completed.

That is where the daily ED channel extremes are and I will be looking to take some sell trades if there are patterns completing at that area.

when you decide to execute pending orders ? who is scott ?
Hey man, Scott is Scott Carney, creator of Harmonic trading.

Pending orders are usually only used when I need to go to sleep but the setups are aligned with the trend with the ED channel supporting my entry.

yes I noticed that you combine trend lines with harmonics , this what makes your success rate high . thank you terry
Don't mention, thanks for following. Can't guarantee all my trades are profitable though, always practice good risk management and never risk more than 1% on a single trade.

BTW, where are you from?
