 This latest
trade in my high risk, high probability trading strategy involved a short on
the EURO CAD which recently started
to break from its Range pattern on the Daily Chart. This break was also in sync with
the bearish candlestick formation on the Weekly Chart the week before, as the
breakout from the Weekly Chart’s Pennant continued to indicate further losses
for the Euro. Once again, the trade involved using the signals and patterns of Candlestick
Formations, Trend Lines and Consolidation to indicate market direction on the
larger charts followed by entry on the smaller time frames of the 4 Hour
and 30 Minute Charts. The trade was also supported by recent short-term
economic data for Europe and the United States which were released the same
morning of the trade on August 14.

other major currencies. The lukewarm response to the Spanish bond auction
renewed fears about the economic outlook for Europe
and its common currency, leading to declines against the USD, Aussie, Pound and
Canadian Dollar.
More trades such

against the majors. Although we might actually see a brief rally this week as
the pairs retrace in favour of the Euro, this is likely to be temporary ahead
of further declines towards the end of April.
On April 5th, the 4H Chart
had formed a Descending Pennant at a major downtrend line and broke an Inner
Uptrend Line to signal a strong possibility of a pullback. The other reasons to
have expected a decline were that
the pair was at the end of its average Weekly Range of 500 pips
it was also just below the Support of the Weekly
Chart’s Range which normally leads to a pullback
the Euro had already started to decline
significantly against other pairs earlier in the week.
