TRADE GBPUSD: SELL@1.51900 Triangle Breakout + Wave Count

FX:GBPUSD   British Pound/U.S. Dollar
2086 25 30
In my previous post on this pair, I gave a outlook on the path that this pair should take:
FULL ANALYSIS: GBPUSD - Still Heading Lower In A Wave (iii)

After a brief period of consolidation which resulted in a triangle pattern being formed, we are now seeing a breakout of that triangle down. I don't know that this is a false breakout or a true breakout but this is a trade going with the larger trend and also with my wave count.

WAVE COUNT
I have been labeling this recent retracement wave up as a wave iv of v of 3. That means this next move should be down in a wave v to complete the larger wave 3 if my count is correct. And so far, it looks that way. The wave iv retraced all the way up to the end of the wave i but did not close into it (with the exception of a brief spike up into it's price territory upon opening due most likely to the reaction to the Paris bombings).

PATTERN

As I've shown in the previous post on this pair, there is a POTENTIAL Crab that is waiting to be filled.

MY TRADE PLAN
I have gone SHORT on this pair as per my analysis and will hold SHORT to my TP1 which is at the .886 retrace of this wave 4 although I do expect it to head even lower to complete the wave v. I'll decide at that point whether to keep or take profit.

Sorry, I only give out exact trade levels to members of my service. Hope you understand that I can't give away for free what they pay for. But I post here and tell as much as I am able to in order to try to help everyone as much as I can. I just need to assume that I will have revealed enough for readers here to guess what the levels are.

Sorry to hear that but please be sure you do your own analysis and see if it agrees before you blindly take anyone else's idea. Because it is just that....an idea. There is never any guarantee that anyone's idea will work out. Personally for me, the trade is still going. Not stopped out yet. Will it be? Could be. I can be wrong as well no matter how well my ideas have done in the past. Past performance is never a guarantee of future returns.

Correlations are important but they do not work 100% because no pair is 100% 1:1 correlation to another. If the US Index falls, it does not mean that GBPUSD MUST rise. In likelihood, it MAY do so but not MUST do so.

yes. i went short after the major support break at 1.52 as per my analysis
. turned out well for quite sometime but then turned back and hit SL.

My question to you is: where was your SL and why did you put it there? I ask this because stops need to be put where they have a reason to be there and not just random or based on what you can "afford" or "stand" losing.

EF, there are many traders who are starting with forex and will follow your ideas thinking that you are going to be always right, because you are a professional that devotes full time to this matter, specially if the title of your post is as agressive as SELL@1,5190

The pait is already at 1,5291 and nobody knows when it will stop going up.

I believe that in these cases it would be good from you some type of advice to avoid others' huge losses (and I am not writing this because I was stopped out, but because what I describe happens very frequently to the newbies and also to many others who are not so newbies = follow professionals).

All the best.
