While the patterns didn't quite work out, my overall wave count and the I had shown worked out to PERFECTION! It 's not always necessary for patterns to work out in order for a trade to work. As I've said before and continue to say, patterns are only a part of my overall strategy and I don't completely trade just on patterns.
So what is happening now? In the MAIN CHART above, I have removed the "failed" patterns and left the working patterns in place. Right now, prices have dropped and filled a "Gartley" pattern that I had posted about 2 weeks ago. From this point, I am expecting that prices will now retrace back up somewhat in a bounce from the recent sudden drop which is indicative of a wave 3 move. In fact, I see that recent drop as a wave ( iii ) of 3 down. So now what we should be seeing is a wave (iv) of 3 retrace up. How far up? It could retrace a good bit as is usual after a sudden and explosive wave ( iii ) drop. Also, if my wave count is correct, the wave (ii) was brief and sideways. Which indicates that wave (iv) should be lengthy and most likely a pattern.
Tthere is a very clear and valid that is close to completion. I do believe that prices will continue to drop and fill that though.But before we see this complete, we should see a bounce and then after the wave (iv) bounce is done, then a wave (v) should go down and complete the . From there, I would expect a larger bounce in a wave 4 up.. But we'll deal with that when the time comes.
MY TRADE PLAN
If I see some more PA to confirm that prices will indeed move up, then I may look to get LONG to catch this retrace. But for now, I'll just be watching. If I do not get the price action confirmation, I'll be content to sit and watch for this retrace to complete and then look for a good place to get SHORT.

EURUSD short short short
Draghi invited Investors to hold on their short strategies - me included :-) My Analysis remains short. If we trade below the sma 200 and the flags bottom edge @ 1.105 the next Logical/technical TP would be 1.04. Prices below that Level will generate a Little selloff.
There is nothing more to add! The Pair is bearish furthermore!
Longterm View: LongTerm Swing-Dynamic vs. MidTerm Bearish Flag
When we have a look at the longterm Chart we see a clear and very wide downchannel. At the beginning of 2015 we have kissed the downtrend channels bottom @ 1,04. From that Level on we started a Rebound nearly till the Minimum correction fibo (38,2) . here is also based the EMA 200 as a resist.
Now the Pair is forming a bearish flag! (blue). This bearish flag will generate a TP at the downside @ below the parity @ 0,965 if it will be triggered.
The cyclical /-or longterm swingview will generate a longterm tp @ the downtrendchannels upper edge @ 1,33! ( Magenta "3"?). On it s way up to that cyclical target several resist zones are based:
-EMA 200: 1,135
-0,38 fibo: 1,18
-0,5 fibo: 1,22
-0,618 fibo: 1,26
-Resistance tone formed of former lows between 1,2-1,25
Last but not least - here is the pullback!
