Great British Pound – the BUY case

September 4, 2016

the Pound held the .786 and has rallied around 700-800 pips.  Now, we find ourselves rolling up into the former 2009 support zone w/ a bunch of patterns coming into play. this should act as major resistance and the start of another leg down in the Pound vs USD.

just a pattern …

August 6, 2016

since the HUGE MONTHLY 31 year .78 node the pound move roughly 700 pips (note in 5 waves) and has been consolidating for a month.

take a look at the BUY PATTERN present in the GBP a little lower … they don’t get better than this.  What does that mean?

well after a 31 year .786 node of support we have a Gartley BUY occurring.  all it means is it MIGHT work and it MIGHT not ..

I like the fact that it’s been working/consolidating for a bout a month .. that means the moon is at play!  🙂

wow .. what an amazing vacation in the Outer Banks this past week. W/ a clear head, I open my charts this AM ..

so, the Pound found support on a 31 year .786 retracement…it “should”. But, as we know, it doesn’t have to hold – at all.  But so far it has …

now, if you’ve been following my blog you’ll find that this 30 year support in the 1.35-1.38 zone should not become resistance – polarity principle.

as for me, I’m going to look for a buy pattern (nibble) – folks – this is roughly 1000 pips away so, while it doesn’t look like much on the Monthly chart – it certainly could be a sizable rally right into the “wall of china” polarity principle.

hope you had a great week ….get some.

Great British Pound – polarity principle at work

man, I love this chart …

“should I stay or should I go …?”

check it out … the POUND is furiously getting liquidated and, well, for the global economy that ain’t good folks.

trust me, the options on FB or AMZN and blah blah can make you a lot of money but when the currencies are rolling – like they are now – it’s the shifting of the seismic plates folks.

Pound:

  • testing a 30 year trend line from 1985. Note, it caught the 1985 and 2007 plunges. Is it going to catch this one?
  • the highlighted blue rectangles show an EXACT price pattern.  they are “mirror images” of each other.
    • go RIGHT- LEFT from 2001-1993 and we go UP the blue arrow.
      • we are now folding down into the 1993 low.
        • where did it fall to?
          • the .886 retracement
    • fast forward to 2009-2016 and we go UP the same amount.
      • we are now folding down LEFT-RIGHT into the 30 year trend line, the .786 retrace and the .886 retrace
        • “one” of these should hold the pound for a powerful move.
  • remember, from failed breakout/breakdown levels come POWERFUL moves …

Let’s PLAY the IF-THEN ….

IF the pound respects one of these upcoming levels as support THEN we should get a very nice BOUNCE (800-1000 pips?)

IF the pound does NOT respect these upcoming levels as support THEN we might have another currency collapse unfolding.

Let me know if you have have any questions.

the Great British Pound redux …

CLIFF NOTE: POUND to attack 1.7, make it thru and then set up for a SHORT.  If it does not break thru, then waiting for a sell pattern.  Am NOT going to try and count the current consolidation.  If/when it makes it thru 1.7 it will be quite the cookoff!

CLIFF NOTE 2: please see the following link and you’ll see that my “triangle” thesis in the POUND was, well, wrong … it’s been over 3 months since I have looked at it.  Took that long to bring a fresh perspective.  I can still tell you that I am waiting for a PATTERN but I’m not tied to the triangle anymore …

Great British Pound – again

the first thing I am going to do is go back a 100 years … I should go back further but 1) it’s the weekend and 2) believe this is accurate.  While it’s true the Pound wasn’t necessarily floating against the dollar til 1971 I want to remind us that Spot Gold stopped on the .382 from the early 1900’s and it was fixed then also.  So, here’s a long term count POTENTIAL from 1915

GBP 1915-2014
GBP 1915-2014

 

here’s a POTENTIAL look at the BIG PICTURE (note it’s not EXACT) but a quick look at some major trendline POTENTIAL

GDP-decline-history 2

note the inverted head and shoulders pattern present and how the 2007-2009 THUMP came right back down to the trendline and STOPPED.  Folks, that’s BULLISH … basic TA says to WAIT for the neckline break UP or DOWN on a H+S patterns and for price to “come back to the neckline” — that’s what happened…

So, now let’s “zoom in” to a MONTHLY look at the GBP ….

Main20140426114330

some things to notice – 1.4 is a BIG DEAL from a support perspective and the 1.70 handle has been key since 1996 as RESISTANCE and support.  I think it’s inevitable that we are going to go up and attack 1.7.

let’s digest two major points:

1. so, believe a case can be made of the inverse head and shoulders and the return to the neckline as shown below.  (note: these trendlines are not exact but are used to give us a sense/feel of where are.)  Our light blue line is the neckline of the inverted head and shoulders and illustrating how we “returned to the neckline” and bounced.  Now, let’s think about it for a moment — if you can remember back to 2009 the financial world was coming unglued.  So, take a look at the candles coming into this low.  THEY ARE VERY BEARISH and the NECKLINE HELD.  Overall — bullish ….

2.  I do not have the chart data that goes back 100 years.  I have used the chart above to make a BEST GUESS ESTIMATE of the trendline coming from the all time high in 1935 up in the 5.xxx’s.  What we can say is this trendline is going to come into play.  If I can get my hand on a good CQG chart or something like that THEN I could get more exact but it’s something to understand.  There is MAJOR resistance on the POUND higher but the fact that the data isn’t as good as I would like it “could be” a 300-500 pip range.  Way to much to manage risk … but be aware.

now that we have defined the key areas we can also get a “feel” by using the long term RSI support and resistance zones

Main20140426120543

what do we see ?  In the long term picture there have been times where it has bounced off BULLISH support in the 40-50 area but it has NEVER broken thru the BEARISH resistance levels defined by Constance Brown.

so, note sure I am any farther along then when I started but I do think I have put together an executable gameplan.  Let me know what you think ….
