QUICK ANALYSIS: USDCAD: About To Break Out To Finish Wave V

FX:USDCAD   U.S. Dollar/Canadian Dollar
I have deliberately avoided this pair ever since the wave 3 of V ended believing that the ensuing wave 4 would be extremely difficult to figure out. Why? Because this pair is SO VERY overbought on multiple TFs and there are so many traders looking for the top here that it would be a absolute MESS! I has warned my private clients to STAY AWAY from this pair until the picture cleared up because I expected an extremely choppy sideways market to develop that would be chaotic. That's EXACTLY what we got! So if you were wondering why I had not posted on this pair recently, that is why.

But now, the picture is coming into sharp focus. There will be a breakout soon and when it happens, it will be explosive! But be careful! The top IS NEAR! Exactly where, still can't tell but it could be around the 1.34600 level where there is a .618 retrace of the overall major trend looming. Here's my 4Hr Chart that is showing the wave 5 wave count and also the breakdown of the choppy wave 4 action.

MY TRADE PLAN
I will BUY on a breakout of the smaller triangle and hold it up to the .618 retrace area @1.34600 or near there. Then I will get out and WAIT for some bearish price action to signal a beginning of a decline.

Do you think your wave 5 could end up being a fake breakout of the wedge triangle to the high only to reverse and fall back down? Anything is possible, just wondering.

also- do you use the elliot wave indicator built in the software or do you calculate your own waves?

I calculate all waves manually. I do not believe in the use of auto-indicators. They are programmed by SOMEONE who writes the algorithm according to their own bias. So how can any indicator show you anything except what the author sees? Yes, of course, the RULES and guidelines of wave theory would be built into the indicator supposedly but it still must rely on an algorithm written and developed by the author of the indicator. Regardless, wave theory is a very subjective analytical tool in that it depends a lot on the eye of the beholder as to the wave count. In many instances, there is not just one correct wave count possible. Even in this pair's wave 4 breakdown, I could've broken down the count a couple of different ways and they would all be correct according to the rules of wave theory. So no, I do it by hand and don't rely on indicators to do it for me. Besides, you'll never learn and truly understand wave theory by relying on indicators to do the work for you.

Can you please suggest some readings on Elliot Wave theories?

If you are completely new to EW, then start with the basics. Read Robert Prechter's "Elliott Wave Theory". You'll find it being given away for free on many websites. Once you have read that and really gotten a good grasp on EW Theory, then you can move on to more advanced material. But you MUST have a good foundation first! I'll warn you that it is NOT easy to understand and you'll probably struggle with it at first. But keep practicing and studying it and you'll get it.

Thanks for replying! Much appreciated!

I've studied the basic theories. Wondering where I can find more advanced materials to further my learning?

Here's a couple of more recommendations:

Mastering Elliott Waves - Constance Brown
Predicting Markets - Charting Elliott Wave, Lucas, Fibonacci and Time for Profit - Jeff Greenblatt
Harmonic Elliott Wave - The Case For Modifying R.N. Elliott's Impulsive Wave Structure - Ian Copsey

That last one by Ian Copsey is a very interesting read on wave theory. He has a twist on using and counting waves that seems very interesting. I'm applying some of his methods in my own wave counts and the results are not bad. But again, unless you have a very good foundation, it's kinda of confusing.

Good luck!

Thank you very much!

I'm reading Jeff Greenblatt's book right now. LOL

Will get my hands on the other two after I finish this one.

Cheers!

It has tried that a few times already. But the reason I am choosing to buy the next breakout is because my count has this wave 4 coming to an end as well as the contraction is just about done. That makes the next move less likely to be a fakeout. Now, It COULD do a double stop hunt in that it breaks out DOWN taking in sell orders below the triangle only to reverse and stop them all out and do the same thing up top above the triangle, come back down stopping out all the BUY orders and then start on its' true upward advance. This would be seen as a high wave candle. Maybe a few of them! But that's just a possibility. I've seen it happen after a long contraction like this one. But as you said...anything can happen! GL!
