USDJPY Sentiment and Seasonal Trade Part II

The USDJPY Seasonal Trade Part II USDJPY knocked it out of the ball park - again! If you didn't see the first post about the USDJPY Seasonal Trade that I initially missed, check it out HERE Last night, I mentioned that I was looking to scale into USDJPY long. I was confident that the move wasn't over yet as we are only at the beginning of the month and I didn't believe our Seasonal Trade was over. Sure enough, I went to sleep with [...]

USDJPY Sentiment and Seasonal Trade

The USDJPY Seasonal Trade Like our other Seasonal Trades - knocked it out of the ball park. I have to admit that unfortunately I didn't get to participate in this manipulation. I was not prepared at all for the Market Manipulators to turn on the BUY SIDE Algorithms just yet. Surely they would sell it lower first? At least that's what I first thought - but the answer was No. Once stops were cleared to the downside and price moved into a value area - the BUY SIDE Algos were turned on. [...]

EoWA 3 NOV 2019

As DXY nears stops, proceed Shorting with Caution. DXY is in an uptrend on the HTF and it could be a great opportunity to BUY those stops. USDJPY is of great interest to me this week, Order Flow was strongly down last week and made a New Structure Low. Looking for Shorting Ops. This Pair is my KEY FOCUS this week - at least for the start of the week.  Have to see how the week starts playing out with Sentiment and Market Structure. [...]

To Sentiment or Not to Sentiment?

To Sentiment or Not to Sentiment? That's a dumb question. Imagine this ~ A speeding train is headed towards you as you leap back and forth in front of the track. You could grab on for the ride when it gets slightly past you. If you wait too long, you'll miss it..... But if you keep hopping back and forth trying to dodge it - you're going to get run over. That's what happened this week to those who chose Not to Sentiment. USDJPY USDJPY was that Train, and if you were hopping [...]

Grab and Go (GG)

What is a Grab & Go (GG)? A GG is when Market Manipulators push price to an area of Liquidity to get the BEST PRICE before taking the move in the opposite direction. As they lift the offer on the way up or hit the bid on the way down, they are averaging from the zone they Bought or Sold MOST at (Retail Liquidity Pools). As far as Market Structure (MS) is concerned, these are not a break in structure. A break in structure is BEST when an Impulse Move (IM) moves opposite the direction of structure. A GG [...]
