5:24a GMT - We had a PipHut record for number of comments yesterday at well over 300 (and I'm pretty sure Tommy cemented himself as Top PipHutter of the month only 9 days into February - see top 10 on the right nav). PipHut itself had over 7000+ views yesterday alone - imagine how many comments there would be if everyone participated. Probably too many!
From a signal standpoint our bearish bias yesterday yielded good pips yesterday if you were willing to be a bit more aggressive - I had resistance at 1.3680 (and drawn in at 1.3715 on the chart) and we had a few nice long wicks just touching that 1.3715 resistance and closing near 1.3680 (10:00 gmt) that gave a good shorting signal. First target was hit before the pair bounced back up and then dropped back down to the first target once again for another 30-40 pips.
Daily Outlook: Since then the pair has climbed in the early morning hours kicking a long wick at 1.3715 (which I shorted with a single lot). Looking at the hourlies we can see the pair has been in a bearish consolidation wedge for the past few days which bodes well for the short positions. The risk at this point is, of course, a larger correction perhaps up to the 61.8% fibonacci retracement and resistance at 1.3850. While they would certainly offer an appealing area to short I'm looking for a more short-term drop.
Trading Idea: I took a very small position on last hour's challenge of 1.3715 with the long wick. I will look to add to that position with a break of the bottom rising trend support (currently at 1.3660). From 1.3715 short targets are 1.3680, 1.3650, 1.3615 and 1.3585. If we see a larger correction the next resistance area to look for shorts at is 1.3750.
