A very quick note here highlighting both a long-term pattern development found in a , which I have overlaid over the results of my predictive/forecasting model, whose targets are defined as:
1 - TG-1 = 1.43744 - 04 JUN 14
2 - TG-Lo = 1.40384 - 04 JUN 14.
With ECB decisions coming up tomorrow (05 JUN 2014), the Forex community may or may not have priced the outcome already - I personally tend to think that institutional traders would tend to position price to dampen losses against any surprise while maximizing on strategic positions. In the case of this pattern, I would say that dwelling at the upper portion of the pattern (i.e.: keeping price close to the upper border) does just that: It positions price against any unlikely upward surprise (i.e.: current rate is at 0.25%, while forecast/consensus is at 0.10%, thus likely to pull $EUR downwards) - But then again, this is all guess work, and this is the last thing I need. Instead, I like solid, reliable data for my forecast.
The pattern that stands in the background can be defined as either a or . You will see that the least probable of the forecast level (i.e.: TG-1= 1.43744 - 04 JUN 14) comes into perfect alignment with what would complete as a , such that Points XA would project at 0.786-Fib ~ 1.43744, whereas a would seek a deeper point of completion, which is not quite well aligned with the lower TG-Lo = 1.40384, considering that a would seek 1.131 x zero-A position as its outer most completion at Point-C (as you may recall, the is only a "quasi-pattern", incomplete by a one-off system, which starts its count at Point-zero, then moves on to complete at Point-C. This is so because the pattern is the introducing feature of the pattern, which completes at 50% of the recent B-C impulse - Consult Scott Carney's Trading books and website for more information on this).
