IDEA (Weekly)

formulate a trade idea – your analysis, a likely possibility // set-up play out

download (1).pngThe structure on the weekly – downtrend ended with price breaking out and forming the flag which has broken out and is currently on a strong uptrend (all the Euro crosses). Potential to reach the top of the structure but will see as that goes. Multiple weekly inside bars provided the structure to trade at the break out off.


trigger for the mentioned idea, what you want to see: clean impulse + choppy correction

download (2).pngThe weekly inside bars were seen as the pennant on the 4H. Trend is strong – very shallow pullbacks. Price consolidated around resistance instead of bouncing off and that registered an oversold reading on the stochastic, on an uptrend, a buy signal.
