QUICk ANALYSIS: EURUSD: 2 possible ways flag will finish

FX:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
2356 16 38
After taking a -20 pip loss on my last trade idea on this pair, I have now re-analyzed my wave count and come up with 2 possible scenarios for which I think could lay out the ending of this wave B corrective pattern which is a bear flag that is completing. Once completed, the bear flag will lead to a nice move down in a wave C. I will be looking to catch that move down.

Scenario #1 - Double Combo WXY Finishing with a Ascending Triangle
In the MAIN chart above, I have laid out this possibility. I am leaning towards this scenario as the price action more or less is pointing in that direction. That's not to say that it will happen. But something to look for and be aware of.

Scenario #2 - Straight Double Triple WXY Combo Wave

Either way, I am looking for a fall. Just keep this DAILY chart I posted in mind:

I am now just waiting to see which scenario will play out. Obviously, if prices reach the top TL of the flag and that TL holds, then Scenario #2 will be the first scenario to complete. Even if prices do complete the triangle in Scenario #1, Scenario #2 will have already happened. So what to do? How to know whether to follow Scenario #2 and take a trade when prices hit that upper TL of the flag or wait and see if Scenario #1 triangle forms before taking a trade? It's a good question and no easy answer.

What I will do since the risk will be well within my trading plan is to take a SHORT trade off Scenario #2 completion when prices reach that upper TL provided I get a bearish PA signal and just hold it from there. Why? Because even if the triangle does happen, I would expect that prices should remain below the entry point for my trade. Possibly. There is always the possibility that IF/WHEN that triangle does form, the E point may get broken and a false break may happen that would take prices above and beyond that trade entry wherever it is before dropping.

Buddy, I think this pair is taking off to the topside. 1.20 is not inconceivable, before it revisits the 1,11 - 1,12 range. Your take?
This is a common reaction whenever prices go one way or another. When it starts heading up, bulls will come out and say "it's going up! See?" and when prices move down, bears will come out and say, "See? It's dropping!". Best thing to do is not to overreact to either way. Analyze the charts, find good scenarios for both if possible, and make an educated decision. If you can only see one outcome, then go with it. But make sure you have an exit in case you are wrong. That is how to trade.

Sorry, I know you didn't ask me that but keep in mind, others are reading this too. Like to see a chart with explanations why you would think so? I can tell you that for me, I'm still looking short for the short-medium term. I am analyzing the chart over the weekend to see what I can see so until then, I won't have another update.

Will work on those charts this weekend.
how about eurusd now? still short?
I don't have any SHORT trades on EUR right now. Will probably wait until after the weekend after I have had a chance to re-analyze this pair before I take any more trades. Maybe.
since price has exceeded the TL(connecting point X 1.1713 and point B 1.1460 in 4H chart ), could it be considered that a bat pattern is forming?
For me, that is not going to be a bat pattern. The C point has a close greater than .886 of the AB leg. Needs to be between .382 - .886 to be valid.
