After watching the latest price action. I have revised my wave count on this pair to reflect a more outlook for now. The last trade I had posted (see Related Ideas: "TRADE: GBPUSD: BUY@1.52200 Hold The Presses! A clear buy! G-Zone") in which I had used a more outlook resulted in a -59 pip loss. More importantly, the price action that invalidated that trade confirmed that there is more downside coming in this pair. How much more? Well, according to the scenario I am posting, not that much more before we get some retracement. But on a larger picture, there is MUCH MORE downside to come before we may get to see that long-awaited wave (C) up that will propel prices skyward. Given this wave count and scenario, if prices do follow my outlook, we are still in for months of corrective price action ahead on this pair.
DAILY CHART - Overview Of The Scenario
There are 2 POTENTIAL patterns that are of relevance to this scenario. One is a and the other a . On the main chart above, you can see a closeup of the D point completion of the . What you can also see is that there is a pattern that also finishes there. And there is confluence with the fib extensions of the previous wave (a) up at the 1.414 extension as well. So this completion could mark the end of wave (b) of the larger wave B one degree higher.
On the , you can see that there is a POTENTIAL pattern also, This bat would have its' completion point almost right at the .886 retrace of the entire move up from the beginning of this corrective phase. This would put the completion right in the G-Zone which is a high probability reversal area. This would make sense since many times, prices will retest a major top or bottom before moving on. In this case, price action,will retest the major bottom lows before continuing back up in the wave (C). So if prices do follow this scenario, I will be very, very interested when prices complete that bat!
MY TRADE PLAN
There is a high probability that prices will complete this as there is price action currently and that by breaking the recent lows (see chart) and also a minor TL (see on chart), it forced me to readjust my wave count to what you see in the current chart. By this price action, according to my wave count if correct, the current down trend can only be a wave (b) down and it is not finished. Should finish at the completion.
Where prices are currently to that completion is a good +190 pips so there is still good pips to be had. I will go SHORT on this pair to the completion of that . Stops will go above the subwave b (blue) of this current down trend.
