USDCHF in strong trend down?


Recommended Posts

As mentioned in the DX thread recently USDCHF looks to me like it has made a medium term turn at a wave B and is now proceeding down in a fairly strong wave C.  If you look at the LT Monthly chart you see a massive Triangle that was broken in a small rally in 2014 (coincident with a DX rally after the 2014 Fed Jackson Hole conference) and then confirmed after the de-pegging from Euro debacle in Jan 2015.  Since then the pair have rallied to a slightly higher high (wave 1 - pink - weekly chart) and are now apparently in an A-B-C retrace to wave 2 (pink).  The recent high and turn came at the Fib 62% and weekly chart upper triangle line with Negative Momentum Divergence (NMD) and a pin bar AND inside bar price action formation.  Since then the market has moved down quite sharply and I am looking for a wave 1-2 and then strong drop down in wave 3 to come.


Impossible to know which of the 2 scenarios I highlight on the weekly chart will come to pass but for now I favour scenario 1 and will watch DX and other similar pairs for clues while I Shepard my shorts and seek to add at appropriate rallies.

So far so good for my road map in that this market did indeed turn at the indicated area and is now proceeding down in a fashion that is consistent with the forecast wave C (i.e. a strong move).  If we see a reversal in a retrace fashion from the lower Triangle line and the move down continues as it has  so far then this will be a 1-5 wave pattern.  If the reversal is in A-B-C and then turns at a lower high then another strong move down is on the cards.


My approach is as follows.  Hold my Shorts taken at the previous high and seek further shorts as the market turns at a potential wave 2 retrace (i.e. sell the rallies).  The Daily chart shows that a Wave C could descend all the way back towards the weekly chart Triangle line and/or Fib 76%.


The alternative is that the market stays within the Triangle for another few rounds but a strong move down is aligned to other FX crosses and DX assuming the USD rally scenario doesn't materialise in the near future.

    • In the previous year, #bullrun2024 had been a trending hashtag as most crypto enthusiasts continually drooled over the prospects of witnessing another bull cycle. 2024 is finally here and so far so good has produced only fireworks. BTC has soared to 60k+, the market is green, and there’s a general sense that the bulls are returning. If there’s one thing that pays most in such bullish market, it is the flair to spot early gems and position oneself before a breakout. In that regard, Bitget has been my plug for a few years running. The early listing of $ORDI last year for instance before Binance listing 7 months after, and a surge ultimately is well documented. This year alone, Bitget has continued its wealth creation for users nicely, coins like $PORTAL, $GPT, $GTAI and so on have gone on to print for investors as depicted in the picture below. Web3 rewards not just active participation, but strategic positioning. There’s no gainsaying that the key to securing insane profits in this market is by positioning early and strategically too. Bitget’s eagle-eye for spotting early gem is a flex. Numbers don’t lie.  
    • Portal itself is awesome. Those who haven't got any airdrop, I think it's best time to accumulate for them.. tho, I'm gonna DCA....
    • Nope the hype is worth it. The project is dope itself as well as the team. Already deposited my bag at Bitget... Let's hope for the best 🤞
