When there is THIS many factors all coming together for a perfect storm of evidence for a SELL, it just CAN'T BE IGNORED! Let me list the ways:

1. COMPLETED Bearish Bat (purple)
2. Prices are now within the PRZ of a COMPLETED Bearish Butterfly (yellow)
3. Prices are within earshot of completing ANOTHER Bearish Bat (blue)
4. Very near to completing a POTENTIAL Bearish Crab (black outline)
5. Prices are hitting the top of the contracting triangle trend line
6. Prices are within a zone between the top of the triangle and the MAJOR SR Structure that is also the BAMM line of the larger POTENTIAL Bearish Bat on the DAILY TF
7. The RSI is extremely OVERBOUGHT
8. COMPLETED AB=CD pattern (red)

You know, if I looked deeper, I'm sure to find even more reasons to SELL! But really, do you need any more? Now, there are times when we have lots of reasons to make a trade and for whatever reason, it still doesn't work out. Some may say it's too obvious and that it can't be that easy! Well, my response to that is you must trade what you see! Don't overthink it. I've said it before many times and I'll keep saying it. No matter how many patterns, lines, fibs, etc. I draw on the chart, the market will do what it will do. Think of it this way....given all of the above factors...WOULD YOU BUY???

I've made a killing off this pair in the last month or so. It has been so predictable! No reason to stop here! That's not to brag. It's to stay confident and positive about what I am doing. I have closed all LONG positions I have held till now. It's NOT because I am expecting any major reversal. I am not. In fact, I am still VERY BULLISH on this pair. But after having bagged almost 1000 pips, it's a good time to take profits and then look for another chance to go LONG. But for now, I am going SHORT in the case of the triangle pattern being completed. However, I am very, very aware that the ABC zigzag scenario is a real possibility and I am prepared to close any SHORTS in favor of going LONG again should price action tell me so.

If you are not already SHORT by way of the trade I posted last week (see Related Ideas: "TRADE: SELL@NOW UPDATE #1: EURUSD: Wave (v) Projected Ending", then a good time to get SHORT would be any price now or you can wait a few more pips and see if the higher POTENTIAL Bat pattern will fill. It's very close to being completed so if you really want to get in the SHORT trade, trying to save a few pips by waiting really doesn't make much difference.

Please keep in mind that I am not giving any trading signals or trade calls here. Only providing my own trade thoughts for your benefit and insight as to my trading technique and style. Please don't ask if you should or should not take the trade. If you are not sure, then you do not have a trading plan for yourself in place. I suggest you make one before you continue to do any trading!

This impulsive rally is a different thing altogether...we can't short this. We need a retracement to go long now.

Long EURUSD began when DXY began to breakdown with sentiment. I projected 8-handle by mid summer, but looks like itll be the end of summer. Technicals, when combined with cross-market analysis, really pointed the way.

Central banks are going to be challenged. The "sure thing" carry trades will be forced to unwind.

Indeed, my favorite would be to short the jpy pairs for now.
EURUSD looks tricky, same as gold.

I don't know. JPY could be just as tricky. In January, I posted how the markets up to that point were shaping up like 2008. In regards to forex, I pointed out how the dollar rose much like it has over the last year, and yen (which was battered lower) began to recovery quickly suggesting a potential climax.

I like we can see something similar happen, but I'm more position-based than day trader. Sooner or later these moves have to be digested and could make great flips!

Looks pretty clear to me so far.

I'll short on retracement.
By all means. I would quote Keynes, but I'm sure you already know. Timing is everything, but really there's already been a retracement up over 200 from bottom. This is likely shorts will be added to. Maybe see what 120 has in store.

I stick to my methodology.
It tells me to short the retracement with all I got, and I will.
OK. That's what I was saying. Long JPY lol Oh, well.
