Hi guys, today I want to show you how I trade countertrend, piecing multiple timeframes together. Keep in mind though, that generally speaking the sentence 'the trend is your friend' is always true. However when it comes to specific timeframes one can make use of particular price movements. Such as in this case. As you can see the EURUSD recently had a strong ...
WTI: USOIL It's not quite reached the target yet by about 11 pips but if it touches that perfect level it will likely only be a spike, so am closing out here and thinking about a counter rally long for 100 pips - still overall bearish though so still looking to short again, but hopefully from higher up - or on a break below first target as per comment.
AUDUSD: the US Dollar looks like it's going to collapse on Monday with a strong Euro and GBP the drivers. But it will sweep AUD up in the tailwinds, creating a counter-rally and dragging it back up to .7473 (if you buy sell half here) and more likely up to .7515 (sell other half here) where it becomes a fabulous short once more.
If you are a trend following trader, find instruments and timeframes that satisfy your trending criteria and just follow the signals. But remember: consolidation period can be brutal to a trend following strategy. Also, the longer the trend, the greater the chance for a reversal. With that in mind, make sure you apply proper money management.
