EURUSD I’ve marked two areas in the above chart that stand out to me. The first is the big bullish push (candle “1”) that we saw over a week ago. Price moved decisively against the overall trend and managed to pull off a strong close, which also coincided with month-end profit-taking, the implication being that […]


GBPUSD Price moves in a never-ending cycle of these things, followed by those things, and then these things again, and so on. See below: These things are the impulse/trending moves.
