Market classification

According to me, there are 5 types of markets.

120% buy is when the Maroon channel is above the Green River and price makes swing lows that reach below the Maroon Channel by 20 pips at most.

110% buy is when the Maroon Channel is above the Green River and price makes swing lows that reach below the Green River by 20 pips at most.

110% sell is when the Green River is above the Maroon Channel and price makes swing highs that reach above the Green River by 20 pips at most.

120% sell is when the Green River is above the Maroon Channel and price makes swing highs that reach above the Maroon Channel by 20 pips at most.

In all other markets there is no trend-edge.

I call the 110% markets as “Second Gear” and the 120% ones as “Third Gear”.

 

The percentages mean position size – in case you are invested in the wrong direction, it is the hedge size, but if you want numbers, with 200% leverage 10% overdrive would mean 5 mini lots per $1000 equity, and 20% overdrive is 6 mini lots.

 

Step 1> find the market to trade

Currently (28th of May, 2018)

120% short:

USD/JPY, GBP/JPY, EUR/USD, GBP/USD, GBP/CHF, EUR/JPY

110% short:

USD/CHF

110% long:

AUD/USD

120% long:

USD/CAD, AUD/CAD

USDCAD020

GBPCHF121

The spacier the separation of the Maroon and the Green, the stronger the trend. Extra points can be gained by good alignment vs the 4H Lema – lately I call it the Deep Pink.

Class A’s:

long:

USD/CAD – where the deep pink is below – at 1.2707

short:

EUR/USD – deep pink above at 1.2136

GBP/USD – D.P. 1.3779

GBP/JPY – D.P. 150.40

EUR/JPY – D.P 131.3399

GBP/CHF – D.P. 1.3343

 

Now you have 6 pairs. Check their wave structure on 4H. You do not want to try to get in right after a terminal move.

I would disqualify the EUR/USD for it seems to have 5 waves down.

EUR923

GBP/USD in a similar shoe.

GBPUSD068

GBPJPY – long in the tooth as well

GBPJPY3

EUR/JPY This kind of looks like an ABC, and this might reverse the hardest.

EURJPY2

GBP/CHF – this might be putting in a head & shoulders, by all means it seems too late.

GBPCHF44

So, USD/CAD is the only viable candidate on a pullback.

USDCAD21

Buy it after 2 Swing Low prints on the 30-min & cover your long upon a cut appearing above a settled RSI 85 reading.

USDCAD22

Optimal entry would be seeing the second swing low (counted from a swing high print) that gets printed in the Maroon Channel or up to 20 pips below. That would be a 120% buy.
