If you are LONG on this trade as well, this would be a good time to take some profits and prepare for a retrace. I have already BUT I am leaving some positions open in case it does break the TL and continue higher before retracing. Don't be greedy! If +550 pips is not enough for you, then you're being greedy.
Do I think this pair is still headed higher? Yes, of course I do. In fact, I think it still has some ways to go yet. But the market is the market and will do what it will. So pay yourself now and pocket some of that profit.
So now you see that prices have made a HH and reached the TL. This has now created divergence in the . Mind you that just because there is divergence is NOT a good reason to SELL! Divergence does NOT indicate that prices are about to reverse. It only indicates a POSSIBILITY that it will and does NOT tell you WHEN it will reverse. Prices can continue higher without regards to the divergence for a long time before reversing. This is why so many of you make mistakes as I see people posting here to take trades just because they see divergence! That is an amateur mistake!
Divergence in conjunction with other SOLID reasons is what you need to see before assuming high probability of anything happening. Even then, what you must do is watch the PA for signs and clues. At the moment, there isn't any immediate PA that indicates a turn. That is why although I have closed some of my positions and banked some profits, this is NOT a time to go and SELL!
