there is a weekly pivot resistance on 1.56500 which is resistanced by price action on 4hr timeframe; because of that im short; about your setup, i think its better waiting for a break out above that weekly R1
good luck.

I regard your ideas highly Technician but using price overlay, GBPUSD vs EURUSD are twins.
EU is a more calm version. GU is an erupting volcano. EU recently went down. I have a feeling GU may follow suit so please be careful.

Well, there is no right or wrong in trading, so i cant say you are incorrect. But In my view, GBPUSD has been very resilient even after today's bad inflation numbers.

Agree, sometimes you are right because of wrong reasons and other time you are wrong even with correct reasoning. So right or wrong is irrelevant. What's relevant is how you manage your risk.

Be careful making that assumption that GBPUSD and EURUSD are twins. They are more like fraternal twins. Normally, they are about 80-90% correlated. But at this time, they are not. Daily correlation is at 55.3%. Weekly is at 87.7%. Good to keep correlations in mind but each pair has it's own personality. Trade what you see. GL.

Yep buddy, this is another possible scenario,there are different reasons that support each scenario. One more thing that support the bullish view is

Also we are still in a higher highs and higher lows structure.

So a trader has to choose which scenario he favors and see that is supported by more evidence. I have chosen the bullish when, which might be right or wrong, nothings guaranteed in markets.

This is interesting & I appreciate your work. Great trade idea on the crude oil- A++. But I like your short trade on GBP from 2 days ago which I posted 4 hours ago on that idea. Today's doji closed on the mid Bollinger Band. I like the short side trade at current levels: sell @ 156.30/ SL 156.82/ target 154.55

Hi Tech. Always good to see different points of views. Many times I agree with you but in this instance, I don't. At least not for the short term. Long term, I am net BULLISH on this pair. But short term BEARISH.

Great to see your view, appreciate your contribution. Honestly, I am not a big fan of harmonic patterns, except the Three Drives .
Reply
EverythingForex PRO Technician

Not everyone is. To each his own, But I don't trade using harmonics in isolation like the pure harmonics guys do. I always do so in harmony with other factors. In this case, overhead structure in confluence with harmonics is why I am short-term bearish. But good luck! Love your work and much respect for your opinions.

Again, don't pay no nevermind to the haters.

harmonic patterns only work at long term period, like yearly and monthly. If you use a wrong tool at right market then it's wrong. I used to believe harmonic but most of short time period it's wrong.

I use it as a strict continuation pattern only and never as reversal signs. i.e. A bullish gartley should have an uptrend beforehand.

It looks like now is a critical point but I am leaning towards move up. I will enter long around 1.56430. I use 1H charts so my initial goal is not too far.

I appreciate your effort and your transparency and i believe your view is the correct one, you are buying @ the bottom of the channel but there is a danger of the Broken DTL (Down Trend Line) retest, the last remark was positively meant and i don't believe luck has anything to do with it so instead i will wish you Discipline, patience and consistency.

Interesting pair, although seems a lot of resistance trying to regain this upward sloping trendline. Made a long legged doji on the daily and daily rsi showing signs of resistance. Will be interesting to get daily closes above 1.5630's

Hourly not looking much better. Latest UK jobs report plus market seemingly unconvinced Carney would ever raise rates before the fed so this could be enough to keep this pair under pressure. Bears in control here.

Hey Technician!

What are your thoughts of this trade now? The way i see it, its ranging/choppy so the odds of price going either direction is 50/50. I would do manual close.

I'm long 2 GBP @ 15602 will sell 1/2 @ 15660 1/2 @ 15690 (I Hope) stop is @ 15579.
If you're still long let's bring this one in for us both. What is your current upside target?

Hi Technician, I agree with buying a dip below 1.56, a retest of the nick line line will be ideal entry for me as well, this is what I see

I am not in this trade, but I will feel exceptionally delighted if you win it. Please, do not be discouraged, this is what makes you a REAL trader, the courage to keep going despite all odds. And just in case this turns out a loss too, there are 82 more trades in this journey. Simply ignore wild talks, ok.
