Harmonic Trading – Different Gartley Methods (based on the article)

"The beauty of the original Gartley pattern comes from the money management system involved. Money management with Gartley allows for hefty 1:3, 1:4 or even more as risk-reward ratios. If you want a Fibonacci and Gartley approach, look for no swing above 61.8% of the previous move lower. The series of lower highs overwhelms. Bulls look trapped. Gartley labeled this segment A-B. The longest in the pattern. And then, suddenly, bulls catch a bid. This is the B-C segment. How do we know this bounce matters? The answer comes from the A-B characteristics: the lower highs series gets broken by the B-C segment."


"Larry Pesavento took Gartley’s original work to a new level. Because of him, the Gartley 222 pattern became a well-known harmonic pattern today. The “Gartley 222” method as described by Pesavento derives its name from the page no. 222 from the original Harold’s Gartley’s book. The most simplistic representation of the Gartley 222 pattern looks like this" :


"Carney was a student of Pesavento. He didn’t like to leave to many possibilities for the retracement levels, so he worked on finding a better approach. Carney’s approach to harmonic trading was made public at the turn of the century. His approach uses specific Fibonacci ratios between the Pesavento’s Gartley 222 pattern."


"Traders need to know that harmonic patterns work best with a sound money management system. Before defining the target, one must deal with the potential loss."

Harmonic trading… let’s start from the beginning. H.M. Gartley was a prominent technical analysis that looked into specific retracement patterns. One of them bears his name to this day: the Gartley trading pattern. In time, the original Gartley pattern suffered some changes.

GBP/USD - daily ranging bullish; 1.3267 and 1.2817 are the keys (based on the article)

Daily price is located above Ichimoku cloud in the bullish area of the chart: the price was bounced from 1.3267 resistance level to below for the ranging to be started with 1.2817 Senkou Span line as the border between the primary bearish and the primary bullish trend on the chart.


  • "Those three votes for a rate hike were the most since 2011 at the MPC, and this triggered fresh fears of the BoE’s massive stimulus program wreaking dire consequences on the British economy. After the ‘sharp repricing’ in the value of GBP around Brexit and then the ensuing dovish campaign from the BoE, higher levels of inflation seemed simply mathematical as importers moved prices-higher to adjust for the -20% move-lower in GBP/USD."
  • "As those levels of inflation began to creep-higher earlier in the year, the thought that the BoE may need to adjust rates to stem those inflationary forces began to gain steam. In March, Kristin Forbes became the first vote for a rate hike at the BoE since Brexit, and she even accompanied that vote with an op-ed in The Telegraph to explain the rationale behind her decision. Then in June, inflation for the month of May came in at 2.9%; followed by those three dissenting votes that helped to bring some life in GBP/USD. When Mark Carney himself opined on the matter towards the end of the month, saying that rate hikes may be on the horizon for the U.K., the British Pound shot-higher to trade through the 1.3000 level."
  • "After a pullback was seen through the first two weeks of July, USD-weakness began to take over, and GBP/USD went into resumption of the bullish move after a 50% retracement, extending all the way up to fresh 2017 highs at 1.3269."

, we looked at the British Pound after the pair traded above the vaulted 1.3000 level to set a fresh 2017 high. Over the previous month, there had been starts and stops for the bullish move in the pair, and that seemingly started in June shortly after the Bank of England had surprised markets with three votes dissenting in favor of rate hikes...

    EUR/USD - intra-day correction to the bearish reversal; 1.1727 is the key (based on the article)

    Intra-day H4 price was bounced from 1.1892 resistance level to below for the secondary correction inside the primary bullish trend to be started. The price is testing 1.1727 support level together with Ichimoku cloud to below to be reversed to the primary bearish market condition.


    • "Last week, EURUSD started out on a strong note by briefly pushing through the 2010 low at 11876 on two different days, but each day it was unable to sustain above. Leading into the U.S. jobs report on Friday the euro was putting in a rising wedge on the 4-hr timeframe which provided a warning that we could soon see a downdraft if the underside of the pattern was broken. The all-around solid jobs report gave the US dollar a shot in the arm across the board. Not only was the bearish rising wedge triggered, but for the first time since June we saw a lower-low develop on the 4-hr. This puts us on alert for a bearish sequence to begin developing marked by a failure to rally and develop a lower high and then subsequent lower lows. The first area to look for the euro to struggle is roughly where it closed the week near the vicinity of 11775/800, and even if it can rise above this first level of resistance if the trend is to turn lower it shouldn’t be able to gain traction above 11850."

    NZD/USD Intra-Day Fundamentals: New Zealand Inflation Expectations and range price movement 

    2017-08-07 04:00 GMT | [NZD - Inflation Expectations]

    • past data is 2.2%
    • forecast data is n/a
    • actual data is 2.1% according to the latest press release

    [NZD - Inflation Expectations] = Percentage that business managers expect the price of goods and services to change annually during the next 2 years. 

    ==========

    From hotcopper article :

    • "The New Zealand dollar held near two-week lows on Monday while its Australian cousin steadied after four sessions of losses as the greenback finally found some favour from an upbeat U.S. jobs report. The New Zealand dollar NZD=D4 slipped 0.3 percent to $0.7395, just above last week's trough of $0.7392 - the lowest point since July 21."
    • "We think the RBNZ will do neither, though it is a risk." "An RBNZ survey on Monday showed inflation expectations for two years ahead had slipped to 2.09 percent, from 2.17 percent in the second quarter. The pullback adds to the case for keeping rates low for longer."
    • "Together with the low New Zealand Q2 CPI, the recent lift in the NZD raises the question of whether the RBNZ will talk down the NZD or replace its monetary policy's neutral bias with an easing bias," said Joseph Capurso, rates strategist at CBA.
