Aug 15 – Aug 20 2021 – Results Updated
AUDCHF – Late to the party as there was no entry until price ranged on the four hour chart. 160 pips to lows.
BTCUSD – Bitcoin gave the entry and began to pull back. Since we are looking simply for decent entries for positions, it’s hold. Price eventually rewarded with a $2000 move.
EURAUD – Massive move on the break of the entry line for a 399 pip moves to high
EURUSD – No trigger
GBPCHF – 211 pips from break of entry line
GBPUSD – Price melted down
NZDJPY – All targets hit on the breakdown for 162 pips
USDCHF – Lackluster break with 51 pips to lows before price fired back to the upside
USDJPY – 43 pips from break to lows and then price rallied.
289 pips from last week. Those were mostly continuation plays on the daily but using the lower time frames for the reversal trigger. This week, a few better setups including a few entry points on Bitcoin. Again, continuation trades are better traded off the four hour chart looking for a reversal, range breakout, or any type of trigger that puts price in the direction you want to trade.
Aug 8 – Aug 13 2021
249 pips this past week as price movement is quite slow. Without strong directional movement, it can be tough to manage trades. This is why trade management is just as important as where to enter and exit.
This week we see a long of currency pairs consolidating on higher time frames. This makes for choppy trading conditions on the lower daily charts. Still, we have 7 lined up for the coming week as we look for some continuation moves in most of them.

EURCAD – Price broke up with 57 pips run before falling back
EURJPY – Price ranged between our marked high and low point
GBPCAD – Pullback played out for 125 pips to highs
GBPCHF – Price did not break our entry line.
Pretty happy with the Forex charts from last week seeing potential pips of 759. Can’t forget the good entry on Bitcoin that saw a gain of $5000.
As usual, when you have one good week, the next week doesn’t look as great. Still some good setups with some being continuation trade setups. While reversals can get you a better entry, some times price is already on the move. Those are continuation trades. You can use a lower time frame, lower than the standard 4 hour chart, to see if you can find consolidations to trade off of in the direction of the higher time frame.

This week we have Bitcoin back in the mix as we are starting to see life. A few hurdles to cross before we can really get moving and we are looking to take advantage of those breaks.
