Potential 2618 Trade Taking Shape
A double bottom appears to be forming on the EURUSD, which has the potential to set up a 2618 trade should the bullish candlestick close above the previous outside return before retracing to the .618 of leg AB. This technical setup will, inevitably, face heavy headwinds with regards to fundamental outlook on USD ...

NZDUSD Bullish Cypher
Riding a short since .74714, and I think it's about time to swing-trade this pattern. I have two targets in mind; one is more conventional for the pattern, but I think there's a chance the .74785 will be retested as part of the ongoing uptrend.

EURUSD Return to Structure: "Enough with FOMC" Edition.
I expect to see EU return to its pre-FOMC consolidation zone in the coming week; a lack of data on both sides of the pair should leave the markets to fluctuate organically and (presumably) return to more stable structure. In this case, the consolidation zone that formed the day before the Fed released its July ...

EURUSD: Likely market reaction to the Fed minutes

Likely market reaction to the Fed minutes
It is no surprise that the Fed has been remarkably successful in disappointing the market this year. Now that the year is winding down, the probability (or perceived probability, that is) of a near-term rate hike is gaining some weight. Let's hope to read anything but the words "wait and see" in the FOMC minutes!

EURUSD Bearish Waves, pt. 2
This trade is a play off my profitable two short trades (selling the original trend, then selling the retracement) last week (see related idea, pictured on left side of chart). Once price action broke support / resistance at the 1.11810 level, I'm in on a short with my sights on the 1.11450 level, and plan on ...

Little downside risk, but will it long?!
Caught a USDJPY long fresh off a rebound against prominent structure. Since I don't usually trade USDJPY, I tightened my stop a bit; hopefully structure alone will keep price action floating comfortably above. I will probably reposition stops once T1 is hit, as there is always the possibility of a T2 hit. Let's ...

Cypher pattern forming after post-RBNZ false high?
While yesterday's rate decision was a disaster for some (and a major payday for contrarians), some unique cypher-like qualities have come to light on the 1h chart. Most notably is the wick on the 17:00 candle (i.e. false high) post-RBNZ rate decision, which touches the 1.272 extension of a rally between the ...

EURUSD bearish waves
Since last night's trade was quite profitable, I figured I'd try to quickly capitalize on the H&S pattern that formed on its initial retracement. Essentially I'm taking a similar short to that of a 2618 trade, but think of this as a... 2786 trade.

Crab-like structure ahead of RBNZ
Unlike my prior post on EURUSD, I think the RBNZ rate decision will work in my favor. While the fib ratios are ballpark (to say the least), upcoming rate decision will likely rocket the market down to the .71444 handle (target 1, which corresponds to 2011 and early 2015 structure lows), if not lower (target 2, ...

Potential 2618 Trade Ahead
Spotted a nice little double top on the EURUSD 30-min chart. The trough between peaks is broken up by the weekend, but it's structure coincides with topside resistance to a bullish pennant on 7-27-16 @ 20:30, which then becomes support on the 29th. The downtrend following the second top breaks this support level, ...
