Completely irrelevant but do you know what's going on with usdcad, I'm bearish hoping it goes down to 1.311 but if it goes bullish to 1.33 I'm taking a big loss which I cannot afford mentally. Thanks Akil,

Callum.

@CallumMcNeill, If you can't afford to take that type of loss mentally my advice would be to exit the trade right away as it sounds like a trade that you shouldn't have been involved in to begin with.

@CallumMcNeill, Exactly trading is all about not taking those big losses, especially when they are losses that we're not suppose to take on. We'll always find winners, it's the losers that kill accounts

Great, I did my analysis and feel it may rise at around 1.04857! Near the 50% fib retracement area! Maybe its a false break through and a failed double top pattern?

@GenesisCTY, doing what I do best I entered at the WORSE possible time at 1.322. So are you bearish as well??

@CallumMcNeill, Not yet! Im seeing if it hits the 50% retracement area of the entire bullish leg! I really do feel its a false double top and will go bullish just as Akil says!

@CallumMcNeill, So Genesis is talking about EURUSD (which is this post). If you entered USDCAD at 1.322, you can still exit and wait for a better entry. Like Akil says, if there is a doubt or you are over leveraged, be careful and exit if needed

@Gurj, Oh dear.. Thanks for pointing that out. As you may of guessed I'm rather new to this and still learning how to change the colour of a trend line.
It's probably a good idea if get out the trade...
And run.

@Gurj, Love what you said about "pick a trader to follow" because it's so important that a newer trader not try to do too much at once, but also finds a style that matches their personality. Great comment!

@GenesisCTY, Could be, the Euro has been complete junk for a while now, so until we break out of this range it's hard to predict what will happen.

@GenesisCTY, do you mean 1.348, that's a heck of a drop haha

@CallumMcNeill,

Haha the reason I see the drop is because I did a Fibonacci retracement on the pullbacks and found the 261.8 areas align well with the 50%! Normally false double tops have a violent drop and a rise back into new highs, so it confuses the hell out of us

@Dragon-From-Balkans, As I mentioned above, if you do not believe them and feel that they are a waste of your time, I would highly recommend not trading them as part of your trading plan. In my opinion It's silly to trade anything that you don't believe in

@MartinMoss, The pattern is now invalid but buy orders go at the "D" completion and stops need to go beyond the "X" leg for advanced pattern formations
