The 0.786 level at 105.4 is likely to hold due to a) it being a fib level b) being a previous 3-touch resistance. We can enter here with a stop loss below the previous low at around 104.25 with a take profit at the 106.6 level, but this isn't the highest probability approach (I don't see anything wrong with it though).
What I'll be placing a blind short entry on is the 106.6 level. This is because:
- The swing low in 2011 and the swing high in 2015 forms our long term fib. It's 0.618 level is our 106.6 level.
- The SH/SL from February and March last year form our current fib range. It's 0.5 level is also our 106.6 level.
- It's a multiple touch (I counted 4 where it was respected) throughout last year.
- People will have seen this and recognise it as the nearest long-term resistance over the months. This means there's a high chance there will be lots of limit orders here.
My take profit will be the equal highs around 105.7.
My stop loss will be around 107.06, but allowing for a wider stop at the top of the thrust candle at 107.3 wouldn't be a bad idea.
Setup 1 (long up to 106.6):
Setup 2 (higher prob. short from 106.6):
Stop: 107.06 or 107.3 for a wider stop
Let me know what you think and give me a follow for more.
