EURUSD: Daily Bearish Bat Pattern Setting Up

FX:EURUSD   Euro Fx/U.S. Dollar
I initially thought that Thursday & Friday would be our breakout days this week but it looks like the party has started a little early. Setting up on the EURUSD             daily chart we have a potential bearish bat pattern completion up at the 1.1393-1.1500 level.

I'm not a daily chart trader, but i will be looking intraday for an opportunity to hop on a retracement and see if I can ride the wave up to this level.

It's Thursday so makes sure that you're subscribed to my youtube page as you don't want to miss today's video release. We'll see how the day goes but we may be talking about this trade in more detail.

No, you should follow what your trading plan say to do. And iff you don't have a trading plan with specific rules of engagement the you should stop trading right way in my opinion

Akil, if short takes in place, what do you think how short it can go? What would be potential TP's?
I yesterday made a mistake and sold, now hedging, and hope it will get back so I can BE.
Thanks.

A short from where price action is now or a short from the potential Bat?

Sorry forget to mention, about this one I understand that we can go back to around 1.105* and there is a buy, but yes from bat. Thanks.

If I were in the bat pattern i'd stick to the traditional target levels. No need to shoot for anything extra in my opinion since we're still in a sideways market

And will you be periscoping this chart tomorrow? Thanks

No, I thought about trying to periscope and do the live room at the same time, but it's just too much

Saw this one too, but the pattern is too big for me, risk along is more than 200 pips

Great stuff.. This bat pattern has so much potential. Actually its D point is at a level where price will retest a broken corrective structure. Besides that i will personally aim for much bigger profit target than the 0.382 and 0.618 usual fib levels. If we get there i will breakeven and let it run south.. Well done mate, keep the good work..!

Nice one Akil. I didnt look at the EUR/USD on the daily so I would have missed it :)

Nothing wrong with that, it's key that we stick to what our timeframes are.

Looks like we clocked the same pattern, nice. Reckon you could check out my page if you get a minute? Be good to get some insights from someone who's been involved for longer than me, I'm currently looking into a few strategies.

Thanks for the share. As far as checking out your page, I don't mean to seem rude but I don't critique charts for traders on this website. It's nothing personal but if I did it for you I'd feel obligated to do it for everyone who asked

Great find by the way

I guess Bat will not complete set up so soon, smelling now short with first TP around 1.09***

hello,

Akil I can understand the .886 of X2A. But whats up with the 1.1618 @ 1.13978 or 1.3974 as per your chart ( probably fib retracement of B2A which I use for gartley).
But as per my understanding for BAT I use 1.168 of B2C fib retracement.
Can you please clear my doubt why you have used 1.168 of B2A fib retracement for BAT ?

regards

I think the 1.618 ist a typical 1.618 extension of the intial impuls. Look for 1.618 inversion strategy as price often reveses. so we have a potential bat and an 1.618 inversion.

cheers

The 1.618 has no use in the Bat pattern
