Saw article on DailyFX, a bullish pattern.  Have no idea why that might be - viruses in the East, and less chance of a rate cut in Jolly Old England perhaps?

so different people will see different aspects in any chart and award different ratings of importance. The 'bullish pattern' is solely concerned with chart technicals and not fundamentals.

I would read the above chart as seeing the sustained bearish attack on the support level (141) has been beaten off, at least for now,  with the bulls breaking the down trend line and putting in a recent higher low and then a higher high and will now be looking to attack the next resistance level (Fib 50). Near term bullish.

may not like one indicator but as a group the dashboard looks very bullish.

Well.  It's not a bullish pattern but it 'appears' to have gone in a bullish direction.  Let's see.

?what's not bullish about it, it's broken the down trend line and the triangle and the wedge to the upside. Has, rather than 'appears' to have, or am I looking at the wrong chart 🙂

Japan just cancelled their annual marathon due to virus spread fears and they have the Olympics coming up while UK 'confidence in household finances' just hit a record high, what could possibly go wrong? 😳

Lesson learned: don't trade this pair again ...

In fact, avoid GBP altogether.  At least until BREXIT GETS DONE by the Prime  Racist.

not really a very hard look at the setup and the entry, what was good, what was bad and what to consider going forward. Did you stick to your rules for entry, do you have any rules, what actually went wrong if anything?

I've demonstrated for anyone looking that you can plan and have rationales and limit your risk and use TA and still lose money hand over first.  That's my good deed for the day.  Maybe I've done enough to get into heaven and God can let me die now and put me out of my depression?

yes but what about the actual trade review, you know, the one you do after every trade? what actually was wrong with the set up or entry or was it all good and you are happy that you did everything right and the fail was just down to probability?

I think so - waited for a dip after the breakout from the triangle.

fair enough, what about in-trade management, you would have recognised the FTA (first trouble area) which was going to be the immediate prior high before the dip, you would prefer to see a strong power move through that level but if not at least tentative probing but a rejection is a big signal the bulls were just not strong enough. So from there you should perhaps have been thinking escape. There is often no need to let a trade run on to the stop, often a trade will come back and test the entry where you could hope to see reloading but if not probably worth just shutting it down in most cases.

I was thinking escape, but I was also thinking give it room to breathe.

Bottom line is I get kicked whatever I do 🙂

again down to probabilities, rejection at the FTA then rejection again at the original entry point is usually enough to persuade it's not going to work and so bail and sit back and watch, if the bulls rallied then there was the chance of a breakout entry passed that FTA.

might do but the structure has turned into a bit of a mess, you have to ask where were the bulls when you needed them 😳

Ugh.  I was right about staying away from GBP.  Look at that hideous doji.

It is going to go back down.  Wait till it breaks the 62% Fib level.  :)

    • The Fed might pump lots of free money in to reflate the market but I can’t see a sustained high with lots of public participation from here, any rally from here is a ‘zombie’ rally propped up by trillions of fake (and free) cash from the central banks.
    • We feel bad for the Jewish population during Hitler's time. Yet we feel socially responsible when we are treated the same today. But don't worry, more rights will be eroded soon and we will be thankful for those measures.
    • I shall continue to hold out with a small bet for a further decline till end of week. Probability wise, a drop is still of statistical significance althought this has reduced since targets were not hit on friday. I shall also open a small long hedge when market open and increase the holding of either direction depending which side the probability dip when more data presents itself.
