EURUSD: Bat Pattern Setting Up, How Will We Get There

FX:EURUSD   Euro Fx/U.S. Dollar
In yesterday’s post I mentioned that the EURUSD             was at a decision point. Well, it looks like the markets didn’t decided to go with my decision to get short as I was stopped out on the 2618 opportunity. Luckily Jason had a monster day in the Syndicate bringing in just under 300 pips himself. That’s what friends are for!

Now that the Euro             has broken and closed above the previous resistance level it’s time to redo that IPDE process and prepared for the next move. Our next structure level starts around the 1.1360’s area which would also line up with a bearish bat pattern completion here on the daily. I’m not a daily chart trader, but this information will be useful for building a CTS             score as I do analysis on the lower timeframes. One thing to be careful with is the higher level of structure looking left. In my experience I’ve noticed that when two levels of structure are close to eachother, the higher one is typically tested. Something to keep in mind when placing those stop losses.

In the mean time, there are two ways that price action can reach that level, it can either go directly there, or we may see a pullback into previous resistance which should now act as support

Because I didn’t have the chance to record a Weekend Review video last night I’m going to do another Live Google             Hangout for the first 20 minute so of today’s Live Trading Room. Here’s the link if you want to join. And make sure you subscribe to my channel.

thank you
Looking forward to the live session again... BTW is there a Cypher in the D leg @ 1.08479

Thanks, not going to be a Cypher for me, but I can see what you're talking about
This is not trading strategy! you posted a bearish pattern and keep trying short trade when trend is bullish, that's just gambling (possible with any ZUP INDICATOR) ...only my opinion, good luck!

Frankly, I think your strategy is the safest and most consistent. Needs a lot of patience and control though. :)

Thanks to everyone that came to the Hangout this morning! hope you enjoyed the show
Hey Akil, thank you pointing out this type of situation where 2 structures level are this close to one another. I was getting confused where I should put my stop loss for the the bat pattern. Thank you once again for the clarification. All the BEST :)

No problem, I learned that lesson the hard way
Nice! THX very much !!! Here is my view:TP and MoB-Zone reached
TP and MoB-Zone reached

We have reached my exspected level -the target of the sh-pattern.
Now it s getting very interesting. This Level is a potential selling zone - a MoB - the R/R for a short looks phantastic.
Can the eurusd brake through that selling zone, a big buying-signal would be generated.A possible target of the Breakout could be the 62,8 fibo-retracement @ 1,1755 from the move 1,25-1,044.
I exspect a shortterm pullback to 1,1190 ( "3?")

Former analysis:
Little inverse SHS ?


Will the shs push the price to the upper edge of the triangle?
Green: preferred Szenario
Gey: Alternative Szenario
Market just went straight to the bat pattern completion point and now it's just stuck there, for now. To me bulls got more strength here than sellers. Little hesitant about the bat pattern !!

It probably won't do much until next week. Only about 2.5 hours left in NY and London has already gone home for the weekend.

Great live show this morning. Quick question. How do you handle trades like this going into the weekend? For example, if you get filled do you let the trade roll through the weekend or cancel it before the market closes? Thanks!

It will vary from situation to situation but in general as a swing trader you'll have to be comfortable with holding positions over the weekend.
Akil_Stokes PRO Jagger_Graham
I would say this, in the specific case of this bat pattern, if the market is anywhere around your breakeven point by the time the close approaches, the safest play is to exit and re-enter first thing on Sunday night
Jagger_Graham Akil_Stokes
Awesome thanks!

That is smart, close and reopen on Sunday. Cleaver, I was holding over the weekend and sometimes bad things happened. Thanks. Great videos keep doing this, its awesome that you and Jason sharing knowledge. Thanks again.

Interesting, upper boundary exactly at my target 1 of current long position!
The point at which the current up move ends might give us clues on the further move up or down...
My view:
EURUSD update: watch for the triangle breakout!

for this pair smart move is folowing to main trand watch price action whats gona do on bull trend if gets low lose power buy it keep it over 40 minute and close position having with 500 pip minumum. break even u can make it over 200 pip in sort term to foloowing price.
