EURJPY: Bullish Bat Pattern With Better Entry

FX:EURJPY   Euro / Japanese Yen
Wanted to share with you one of the trades I got involved in after yesterday’s ECB reaction. It’s a bullish bat pattern on the EURJPY             which is now offering a slightly better entry. Just my opinion of course but I think the best place for stops is beneath the 1.3300 even handled psychological number. Yes it opens you up to a little more risk, but as we saw with last weeks $EURUSD trade (Which smashed through second targets yesterday) sometimes having a little extra protection makes it worth it. Your call of course follow your rules

Also if you missed it yesterday check out my latest Trading Video over at youtube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GnGT7YuGvhI The reaction to this week’s video has been MASSIVE as I go on a great rant about the 3 Steps to changing your trading future as well as a breakdown of a simple pattern trade on the GBPUSD             .

I’m trying to reach 15,000 subscribers by 2016 so it would be a BIG help if you became a subscriber or at least shared the word with your trading buddies. Of course that’s only if you like the content.

Have a good weekend traders and Syndicate members I’m going to try and give you guys a quick video this morning before heading out of town.

Nice setup. Thanks for sharing. I had this on my chart but didn't act on it.

Currently watching this Alt Bat. Hasn't reached completion just yet.

Based on what I see (although still learning) is that price action has passed through structure highlighted in pink. The Alt Bat completes close to a 2.0 AB extension and the 0.382 CD target is within minor structure at 134.15

Im still holding on my the skin of my teeth. Price came within 2 pips of my stop loss@132.90..

Yes, I agree with you all, this was a nerve killing and teeth crunching trade... this is a good example for "PA always could go lower"...when you think that bearish momentum is exhausted...
