GBPJPY Long on M5 after confluence of 6+ factors

GBPJPY is the Forex pair that moves the most, i.e. has the largest ADR - average daily range of all pairs. With the right set of tools and with confirmation, it could be successfully traded on smaller time frames like in this example - the five-minute time frame. This was a successful trade I took yesterday on a live account that was triggered by confluence of indicators and price action.

On June 24 2015 there was a USD rally after the uncertainty with Greece and the EUR zone. One of the most prominent moves was on USDCAD. As we were getting ready for the Asian session, the pair showed exhaustion signs on the hourly chart. There was also a longer term resistance right around that area, which further confirmed that the pair was about the go south.

Fading after Rejection Bar Formation on GBPUSD

Three bars with huge bearish wicks appeared on June 19 2015 after a rally. This signified that the pair had hit a strong rejection/resistance area. I shorted aggressively for this being a very strong short signal. Took quick 6-7 pips but the trade was good for a lot more. However, there was definitely a cluster to the left (not shown on screenshot) and I had to be conservative with the T/P.

As always, trades like this one require a lot of experience and a good ECN broker.

Candlestick Formation Scalp on EURGBP

At 9:00 AM EST on June 19, 2015 a pin bar appeared at the low boundary of a range on EURGBP. The pair had been moving in a tight range for the previous few hours. I executed an immediate long order when the next bar passed the high of the signal pin bar. I placed the T/P conservatively a little below the close of the previous bar formation near the upper boundary of the range for a 8-9 pip profit.
