Long Trade Ideas

  • Put the stop loss 1 pip below the local swing low.

  • Adjust the stop loss to break even once the trade is 20 pips in profit.

The best method to identify a classic “price action reversal” is for an hourly candle to close, such as a pin bar, a doji, an outside or even just an engulfing candle with a higher close. You can exploit these levels or zones by watching the price action that occurs at the given levels.

GBP/USD Analysis

I wrote last Wednesday that the price action was choppy, and the direction was going nowhere.

The only good opportunities I saw here as possible were reversals from 1.3900 or 1.3721.

This was an indifferent call as none of the key levels were ever reached, so there was no chance of a signal from a valid reversal.

The technical picture has changed over the past few days as markets have taken on more of a risk-off sentiment. This has boosted the USD at the expense of all other major currencies, especially the commodity currencies. The GBP is falling against the USD too, but it is worth noting that the GBP is maybe holding up a little better than many other currencies.

The bearish technical environment with the price breaking strongly to new lows suggests that short trades have a higher probability of success provided the price remains below the nearest resistance level at 1.3721. I will be happy to enter a short trade from a bearish reversal at that level.

Another option for shorts, which would probably be riskier, would be a retracement to the next resistance level at 1.3765 followed by exhaustion and then a bearish turn, but I think this is unlikely to set up.

There is nothing of high importance scheduled today regarding either the GBP or the USD.
