AUDUSD Trades Under August Low; Risk Moved to 10530

  on

EXTREME complacency is evident not just from recent volatility readings but also from recent ranges (one and the same). The red dots on the first chart indicate a 5 day range equal to or less than 1.1% (which was reached on 8/10). Since 2008, ranges this small have led to declines of at least 800 pips with lag of anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months. In other words, respect the potential for several false starts. Adherence to proper strategy and risk management should enable us to catch the meat of the next drop. I am currently short from 10520. The drop below 10435 allows the stop to be moved to 10530 (originally 10590 then 10580). A review of the big picture wave pattern (triangle) and substructure of triangle wave c (or d) is included as well.
