A long legged doji in the PRZ of the bearish Crab?

FX:GBPAUD   British Pound/Australian Dollar
Aggressive entry
I took almost the high of this potential long legged doji with a Shark113 short @ 2.1000. I consider this level as the higher zone of the PRZ of the bearish crab . I will post another logchart with all my trades within this PRZ of the bear crab .

Thus far, each level of the PRZ has tested:
- XA 1.618% extension / BC             2.618 extension
- BC             3.0% extension

For more information about my predefined PRZ see:

Reading the chart
Now if the daily candlestick closes as a long legged doji , I will read this candlestick as bull weakness:

The bulls have tried to overcome this PRZ, but the bears hold their line at the 3.0% extension of BC             . At the end of the day, none of sides has really won. However, since this potential doji started off with a gap to the upside, I think there is some bull exhaustion.

Since I'm already short with the Shark pattern aligned with the 3.0% of the BC             extension of the crab PRZ, I've used my regular stoploss of 1.414% extension of OX of the Shark .

But, there is a nice reward if you're patient enough to hold these positions overnight. I'm targeting the 38.2% retracement of the CD leg of the crab as my first target. My second target would be the 50% retracement .

Entry: 2.0878
SL: 2.0190
target 1: 2.01915. risk/reward: 1:3.24
target 2: 1.9930.

Nice m8! Well, I was looking for a Shark886 and a Shark113 at the 4H chart. But when it comes to even numbers, I've aligned the entry of the Shark to the upside to the 3.0% extension at 2.1, as long as it does not hit the 1.272%.

Luckily I've based my strategy upon the shark's:


If this will work out, this will be the best shark ever!!

OK, I've been stopped out on this one. The pair acted very volatile as expected! This is very common with extreme patterns. Luckily, I've kept my losses small.
But, I do consider the 2.0 XA extension as a make or break measurement. The crab pattern is still valid
