Back 12 days ago (see Related Ideas: "TRADE: AUDUSD: BUY@0.70000 MAJOR TREND CHANGE! Wave 5 End"), I posted about a POSSIBLE POTENTIAL in which at the time, the C point was not even set yet (ergo, the reason I called it a POSSIBLE POTENTIAL pattern). Here in this chart, I have update that ( #1) to reflect the latest prices. That would complete near the .707 retrace of the previous wave down you see on the chart and near minor structure zone.
However, there is another that can be drawn ( #2: yellow one) that completes a little later and it would complete around the .786 retrace.
So why am I telling you all of this? Well, simply to make everyone aware of the possibilities that could happen. Currently, I am in this trade SHORT because of the bat and the pattern completions and my wave counts. As of now, this trade is in question as prices are testing the PRZ. I have my stops above the X point of the bat which is also the B point of both cyphers. This is a strong so if prices should break and hold above it, then I would be out of this trade. So what I am presenting here is what could happen if prices were to do that. Then I would next look to the cyphers as the next possible turning points. And I may look for a reason and an opportunity to go LONG for the completions.
As for a scenario where this trade does go as planned. then I am looking at the pattern to complete and see if prices do reverse and head back up again from there. If that happens, then the pattern may lead to the cyohers.
We'll just need to wait and see. For now, I am keeping my stops right where they are and patiently waiting to see if this SHORT trade does work out or if I will be giving back some pips!
