FX Trading June 18 to 22

hope everyone is having a good weekend.

last week was a frustrating range for most of us (if not all), hopefully we will get a nice week starting tomorrow

Cable hasnt broken out of its consolidation-congestion zone, and hopefully a breakout is on the making.
Weekly inside bar, daily and 4hr charts with an apparent higher low at a longer term trendline but that one could also seen as a triangle. In any case, the breakout should hint to direction for the coming weeks.

My personal view is that

a) price has been heavily testing support, but only 2 times tested medium resistance @ 9775-90. Price below this level still keeps my bearish bias but with need of confirmation with a significant breach of 9650 and including 9590.
b) Price above 9820 would partially eliminate my bearish bias and turn it to a larger consolidation. If price formation at the lows of the week are a higher low, there is an initial target at 9818 (from a measured move and ultimately 9945). I would only think that the test of 9820 is game for the bulls.
c) Price above 1.9880 would simply erase my bearish stand and position price for a new test of the big Round Number

I get the creeps of longing a bearish pitchfork, but thats me only.

have an excellent week all

Hi Jacinto,

Got back from holiday last night and catching up on all of last weeks forex posts at the moment. Seems like it was quite a choppy week for everyone.

My system put in another positive week, which I'm pleased with - so back to some real trading tonight when the markets open.

The MM next turn point - as far as I can tell - is around the 25th June, so we may see the market rise a bit up to this date. As yet I have got my head around the targets and Elliot wave and Fib price targets to give anything clearer. If anyone can help on this I'd be really grateful. As far as I'm concerned the jury is still out on the MM - but I am open to discussion.

I'm back and before the shiraz kicks in...

Cable experienced classic condolidation after a big drop and hopefully the new week will bring something interesting..

Something I did note looking back through and running a few tests based on a simple run-of-the-mill S/R theory is quite depressing... Here are the result from 2 random periods from each year....

2004 > 660 and 540 week
2005 > 420 and 500 week
2006 > 415 and 400 week
2007 > 390 and 200 week

irrespective of how I achieved these results, the obvious pattern does not ignite enthusiasm in myself...

Oops! Sorry, MM = market matrix.

We discussed it on the thread a couple of weeks ago.

I've attached an image of the current GBP/USD daily chart with the Market Matrix turn points on. The points for October to February are taken from a MM newsletter - so I'm pretty convinced that these are correct. (I have to say that they are totally different to the ones I arrived at by looking at the charts myself. I got 16 turn points for the forex and not 10 - just shows how you can interpret things differently).

Point 4 on 18th April was the last major high and a confluence of the Elliot wave on 2 major time frames. It gives the top of a 5 wave up movement on a longer time frame from October 2006 (green lines) and a smaller time frame from the beginning of March (purple lines) however this smaller upwave seems to have 7 waves to it, making me wonder whether this is a failure of the A,B,C correction wave. If it is, then what should happen next?

Points 5, 6, & 7 during May, appear to show a new downtrend wave, but then point 8 forms a higher high and 9 goes on to form a lower low - I'm getting a bit lost with the Elliot Wave part of this now. All I can say is that looking at the chart, point 10 should be due around 25th June and I would hazzard a guess that it will not go higher than point 8.

Anyone got any thoughts on this?

jacinto started this thread hi jilly,

i am not eliottician whatsoever, but this is my take of cable,

on a much longer time frame (monthly), 5th way up is finished (also composed of its own 5 waves up which appear also finished).

to be honest, i just like seeing these things as hindsight and not use them as setups.

edit: and as a hipothesis, i think we get corrections to 9200, then back up to 9800 (associated with increases in UK rates end of summer beginning of the fall) and start the decline of cable.
