EURUSD Long Fade Trade After Exhaustion On the Hourly Chart.

This one was a classic fade trade (as you see I like these for scalping). There was a strong bearish move on the one-hour chart and around the close of the NY session exhaustion started to take place on July 15, 2015.

I executed a long with a take-profit target at 23.6 fib retracement of the leg down. Bagged around 12 pips. Great scalping trade.

NZDUSD Short After A Strong Bearish Impulse. Synergy Bars (Heiken Ashi). Fibonacci Extensions.

On Jul 15 a strong bearish synergy bar closed on the daily chart for the kiwi (NZDUSD). The fundamentals were also in agreement (negative New Zealand economic indicators and a strong USD) so I executed a short. I set a break-even point at 127 Fibonacci extension of the previous leg down and executed my break-even Expert Advisor to watch when the price action hits that point. My take profit was set at Fibonacci extension 138 of the previous leg down since it was way past the third leg of the down trend (fourth or fifth leg already) and a danger of trend waning was at hand.

GBP Manufacturing Production Disappointment. Bollinger Band Break on GBPUSD.

On July 7, 2015 there was fundamental news concerning GBP. Manufacturing Production (m/m) for the British Economy came out rather disappointing at -0.6% downplaying the forecast of 0.1%. The pound already looked very bearish on the hourly chart.

When the one-hour bar closed following the bad news, it had broken the lower Bollinger Band. I executed a short with a take-profit slightly above the S1 pivot. Gained approximately 10 pips. The short was good for a lot more considering the negative miss of the economic data forecast but I had to be conservative.
