This has driven an impulsive AB downleg in GBPUSD:

There should be followthrough, perhaps after an additional slight bounce. Target 1.59ish (depending on the bounce).
I marked this 'closed profit'; if someone had got in it could have been worth about 60 pips (for ~15 pips stop loss). But in fact I expected more of a bounce, and unless I'd set a limit order just right I think it would have been very difficult to get a fill. I'm going to suggest two more options for 'trade marking': 'closed flat' (ie no entry) and 'stopped out at entry'.

Now, this time you got me interested in it. Your story reads like one of those Tim Morge's articles. I can see the system has been working nicely from the first chart to the last one. Amazing!

I think I would have missed the entry; this is why RA mainly looks for entries at P & D; it was full steam ahead by the time it hit 'X'. In fact, expecting another bounce, I probably wouldn't have had a limit order set at X for fear of entering too early and getting stopped out.

Watching the tape was helpful too. I realised my broker had given me access to feed after this started. It's going to take a while to learn to do it well, but I *think* it might help with those problematic C pivots.

Another possible entry if it rebounds to faint green line.

Maybe a 1.59114's possible if it breaks the little green CD midpoint convincingly.
