GBP JPY 240 Min


04/09/14 – GBP JPY – ORDER CANCELLED – This potential Long trade almost triggered and then dropped like a bomb after the unexpected rate drop by the Central European Bank and just goes to show not all great trade setups trigger.  The Wave 4 pull back broke some major Elliott wave rules and as you can see from my chart below my software has re-labelled this movement as a bearish trend, currently a wave 3.  My “With Trend” strategy rely’s on the wave 4 pull back to hold and keep within the rules for an Elliott wave movement and clearly in this case they have been broken so I have cancelled the Buy order for GBP JPY.  A wave 3 is very un-predictable to trade in either direction and so I would not even contemplate breaking my trade rules and consider entering a low probability short trade, as in this instance. There will most likely be no more potential Forex trades for me this week as I would need the volatility to settle down in the markets so that I can look for a strong setup. Chart as Below
