Not Another Gartley Pattern - EURUSD

FX:EURUSD   Euro Fx/U.S. Dollar
163 16 5
It's often hard to find harmony between BC             legs in the Gartleys and the XA legs. They usually don't match up.

This is a different case in EURUSD             . As you can see, the 1.272 extension of BC             leg lies perfectly on the 78.6% retracement of the XA leg and also the 1.618 extension of the BC             legs lies perfectly on the 88.6% retracement of the XA leg.

Beautiful Harmony.

As for trading this pattern, I would rather wait for the test of the reversal zones before deciding to take the trade or not, considering the price action in EURUSD             is really bullish right now.
Where is the PRZ and do you consider the ab=cd in a Gartley?

I consider all Internal Harmonic patterns valid when they reverse in the area in between 78.6% and 88.6%.
Especially in this case, that EURUSD had a higher than 61.8 wick on top of the candles I wasn't surprised to see the 88.6% line.

In this setup we have an AB = 1.618 CD at which the price reacted well.

Thank you for your comment russeldaily.
I'll be happy for more discussion.

ab=1.618. That's a new one for me. I like it and will watch for it. Learned something today, and that's good.

AB is actually the start of wave 1 to the end of wave 3 in Elliott terms and the CD is the 5th wave.
AB being 1.618 of CD is quite common in Elliott wave principle.

In this setup we were actually aiming for the higher degree correction that corrected the whole impulse.

Thank you for your interest.

Worked well...not a big fan of these patterns, but you applied it correctly.
How do you feel about pitchforks or ichimoku?

Thank you Ivan,
I don't use indicators unless for a divergence that I can't distinguish with my eyes.
But about the pitchforks, I'm really amazed by how well they work for the first reaction. You almost always get a first-time reaction by your pitchforks.

They seem to be nice...I use bars and the weekly or daily range overlay indicator to see a bigger timeframe at the same. That's about it, I don't like anything that can be subjective and prone to failure, that's why I dismiss these patterns in my analysis.
Do you have a specific methodology for picking the fib pivots?
Would be interesting to know.

Cool, I would be glad to learn more about how you use them.

For fibs, first I do the Elliott Wave homework for the issue, then I spot a correction, then for each specific correction I do bunch of fib time and fib price to find areas of confluence.
The Elliott Analysis itself screens out bunch of fib ratios for me.

Ah, makes sense.
Most people trade price action and patterns without the EW component, but it's not my thing.
I mostly use what I learnt from Tim West, regarding bar chart reading, he has some of that stuff covered in his charts. :)
What do you think about this pair and usdchf during this week?

Good luck on your methodology,
Honestly I didn't study EURUSD this weekend. I've mostly put my focus on Gold in its ABCD correction.
I would let you know once I study these pairs. :)
