A Shark Harmonic Pattern has just been confirmed on the 4-hour timeframe on EURGBP. It has a PRZ formed of two ratios:
0B projection: 1.13
AB projection 2.24
For take profits, we have:
Management level: 0.87140
Final take-profit level: 0.88114
For stop loss, 0.85575
This gives us an overall risk to reward ratio of 7.42.
On the major timeframe analysis on the 1-day timeframe, there is a significant down-trending support trendline formed since the 10th of October 2018 which complements the PRZ formed of the two ratios.
Also, RSI on the 4-hour has reached oversold territory, and in the 1-day timeframe, is very close to being considered oversold.
With the terminal price bar already established confirming the two ratios, there has also been strong selling volume for the terminal price bar, indicating possible exhaustion of sellers.
Now onto fundamentals:
I'll be honest everyone, this isn't looking as simple as I'd like it to be. The Eurozone Consumer Confidence data comes out today in a few hours, and personally, I'm pretty bearish on this. However, I will still be looking at the actual data, and there are two cases that can happen here:
Bad consumer confidence - Lower exchange rate of EURGBP (BAD)
Good consumer confidence - Higher exchange rate of EURGBP (GOOD)
Of course, this is quite obvious to anyone who is aware of basic fundamental analysis , but the significance of this would be more important long term. In the short-term, consumer confidence does have a negative causality with the unemployment rate. This means that it can give us a clue of what will happen with the Eurozone unemployment rate numbers coming out on the 1st of March.
Overall, I am still leaning in with a buy position but I will definitely be watching the upcoming Consumer Confidence data, and making a decision to either close out or hold depending on that data.
Thanks for reading!
Eurozone Consumer Confidence was the same as estimated at -7.4. By staying the same as expected, there simply isn't enough incentive to buy at this point...
Onto the next opportunity!
