NZDUSD: Bullish Gartley with TCT Outlook

FX:NZDUSD   New Zealand Dollar/U.S. Dollar
a year ago
This NZDUSD             trade is something that I've been keeping tabs on for the past few weeks. In fact by this point I think my Live Trading Room & Sydnicate members are probably sick of me mentioning it. But during yesterday's FOMC events price action finally pushed down into the area that I was willing to buy at. Although i didn't get filled on the initial push (due to FOMC trading rules) I did get filled over the London session & currently have a long position.

On the 4 hour chart this is simple an advanced pattern trade, but if you were to take a look out on the higher timeframes you'll see that this is also a trend continuation play as well with a lot of legroom to the bullish side.

I just finished recording my Weekend Review video & this week's topic was "Building A Rules Based Trading Strategy" (Link below). The video reminded me of this trade because although I use a simple example of a TCT trading strategy in the video, advanced patterns can also be used as reasons for entries as well.

I'm a big fan of combining the two, however you have to be very care of when to shoot for extended targets & when not to or else you may end up sabotaging your system by accident. let me know what you think of the video guys!

I got the same pattern but i was able to fill an order of 0.6655 after Fed, I put a long order 10 pips over the point where the pattern completed. Taking the point X in the low of 0.6585 give you a nicer pattern
Perfect gartley pattern completion on nzdusd

Just curious, what makes the pattern "nicer" pattern?

The retracements of this pattern are more near to the Fibonacci numbers: 0.618 and 0.786. Also the fib expansion 1.27 match exactly. Although both pattern are valid as gartley patterns.

The most important difference is that X point is lower so if you put the stop just below X where the pattern would be cancel, it would be a lower stop in my pattern.

There is also a very nice bullish Butterfly pattern beginning at the B leg of the Gartley. It also completed exactly at the support level, I took that one :)

Hi Akil.
How did you know where to expect the C-D leg to end at? Shouldn't a Gartley patterns' D point end at the 0.786 retracement of the X-A leg?
And also regarding the B point, shouldn't it end at the 0.618 retracement of the X-A leg?
Just felt like asking because I thought advanced patterns should be quite accurate when drawn..

I use the 1.272 for my D completion, so it won't always line up with the 78.6
