Following on the heels of another successful trade (see Related Ideas: "UPDATE #3: TRADE: BUY@1.31650 On Bat TP1 + 2 Hit (+185 pips)"), comes a good opportunity to catch a "small" wave 3 in this pair. In this case, a possible wave (3) of wave v of the larger wave ( iii ). According to my wave count, it is already underway but there's still good pips to me made on it. There is also a POTENTIAL pattern that which it's CD leg could also be the entirety of this wave v move. If prices should follow the CD leg of the , then the crab's ending D point should also mark the end of the wave v and the beginning of a wave (iv) retrace back down. If following this trade all the way to the crab's D point, there is a possible 200 pips to be had. Safe way to get into this trade would be to wait until prices have closed above the B point line of the before entering the trade. When prices get past the B point of patterns, the likelihood of that pattern completing increases. And if you have followed my posts, you'd know that I LOVE trading patterns!
MY TRADE PLAN
I am still in this trade from the trade before as I left 1 position open from the previous trade to ride this pair up. But I will look to add LONG positions when prices do exceed and close above that B point which is itself a structure level.
