When the 123 pattern occurs at the end of a trend, it is a strong indication of a change in trend. Since price always moves in waves, this pattern can also be found within a trend and within a trading range.
But one must understand the advantages and drawbacks for any trading technique.
Implementing the technique in the live markets is the crucial part and one must have a trading plan defining the precise entry, stop and exit levels.
Learn how to identify this pattern and set the precise trading parameters of entry, exit and stop levels.
A rather tight range yesterday. A break above the 1.4190 indicates a short term break of the range and a target of 1.4220. The target beyond is 1.4320 if the pair continues to push higher.
A break below 1.4100 indicates another swing down with target at 1.4030 and 1.4000.
Support is at 95.40 and 95.00. A break below 95 will likely probe into the 94.50 area. There is an upward sloping trend line which currently is running through 95.40. So a move below this level shifts the overall bias for the pair downwards.
Upside resistance is 96.10 and just below 96.60.
