After I posted that, prices jumped over +450 pips.
Then on May 19th, 3 days later after prices jumped, I posted this: "GBPJPY Trades Update: +860 pips On 2 Trades. SUPERTREND Coming?" where I was predicting that this pair was still headed higher.
But shortly after I posted that, it DROPPED -340 pips after NEARLY completing a you see on the chart! While I did not expect that large of a drop, I told my members to NOT PANIC and to hold onto the LONG trades. Today, you see the results of NOT PANICKING and sticking to my plan. Not only has it quickly recovered from that drop, it has now gone even higher and is headed higher. The 2 trades I am in and my members are in are now up a combined over +950 pips (+3500 pips in actual trades).
This is a good lesson on why you should not panic and not let your emotions rule your trading. But I will also tell you what it is that I am watching for and how to read price action.
I am now watching for prices to reach up to a UPPER TL that has held prices a couple of times before. This TL will probably provide resistance again. When prices do reach that TL, it will be establishing a new HH (higher high). At this point, I will be watching the PA carefully and may take some profits. At this time, I will be watching the . The should not go higher than the previous high and will therefore make divergence. Because of this, I don't believe that prices will break through that TL yet but instead will bounce off of it and retrace back down in what I would consider to be the wave ii of (v). Probably down to hit an uptrend TL. And then we should see the wave iii of (v) happen.
This is how you use the and divergence to help read what is happening on the chart according to the price action.
