EURUSD - classic 2618 trade

They say that consolidation is the best time to trade harmonic patterns and this definitely is not a lie.
If you trade bat patterns, usually you take profit at the 0.382 and the . 618 retracement of the AD move.

We have reached that . 618 retracement now and it's time to take profits. And immediately we have another setup, the classic 26.18 (or twenty-six eighteen) trade.

What is required for a 26.18 trade :

1. Double top : the A and C points of our bat pattern
2. Break below close below of the neckline : D -point of our bat pattern
3. 0.618 Fibonacci retracement of previous move : where we take profit now

=> all requirements for 26.18 trade are met.

What is expected to happen :

4. price retracement into previous low (Target 1)
5. 1.272 Fibonacci extension of the previous move down (Target 2)
- a potential completion of an AB=CD pattern

Stop Loss : should go minimum above the red dotted line but it is safer to put it above the structure of the double top , which would make Target 1 approximately a 1:1 risk/reward ratio.
Is a double top only valid at the peak of the price action?
@revesrenard, if it is not at the peak of the price action, you can hardly call it a top, right ? :)
Once the high of a double top is broken, it is no longer valid as a pattern. Same goes of course for a double bottom.
Hope it makes sense.
do you guys think that i could be forming a gartley or a bearish crab pattern? if it will go for the crab the target will be around 1.13

Thanks a lot for you praise ! Will be looking forward to your posts
Hi Nico, I am a novice and one of your followers. I see on the 4 hour chart a potential Cypher, that is if the price starts going down from here (1.088 at time of writing). What is your idea?

No worries, we all make mistakes ... as long as you don't make them while trading no harm is done ;)
Sorry, I just saw it now and you posted 8hrs ago ... EUR rallying quite a lot today due to poor numbers from the US the whole week
Be cautious, traders. The imbalances of supply and demand points to a possible bullish reaction.
EURUSD is showing strength: Hidden buying above support area.
