On pretty much every time frame, short, mid and long term, there's noticeable price compression which usually indicates a pending drop based on current price action. Put simply, there's a that's been developing on EUR/USD for quite some time now. So the question is, when is price going to move out of this range and make a big move? Also, will price move as indicated or will it test our patience and go up first (to hunt stops) before the big drop?
The bottom black is the biggest line in the sand, the bottom red and blue are short term targets and possible support/bounce points but ultimately, a bigger drop should not be out of the ordinary (low 1.3X region).
Furthermore, upside risk is not limited either, do not be fooled and think the 1.4000 level will hold indefinitely because when it breaks, price can easily move 100-200 pips above it. Reason being is because stop levels for position traders are wider around big levels, so stops will run up for quite a bit.
1. I filled a few more shorts this morning at 1.3950, 1.3965 and 1.3980.
2. Price is currently sitting at the blue downward trend line (around 1.3850), which is currently acting as support. It's not really a big level though, the more concerning level that's coming up is around 1.3800.
1.3935 short closed at 1.3840
1.3950 short closed at 1.3800
1.3965 short originally had TP set at 1.3780 but decided to close manually at 1.3785.
1.3980 short has a trailing stop of 30 pips (I'll let it close automatically whenever it hits the trailing stop, currently at 1.38136)
