FX Trading – Lot of “key days” yesterday or just more head fakes?
A key day reversal is defined by Stockcharts.com as “a one day chart pattern where prices sharply reverse during a trend. In an uptrend, prices open in new highs and then close below the previous day’s closing price. In a downtrend, prices open lower and then close higher. The wider the price range on the key reversal day and the heavier the volume, the greater the odds that a reversal is taking place.”

    On the weekly chart:might be possible negative STO divergence. $ neared 50% fib ( Jul 18-Jan 23) as well as 62% fib ( Sept26 – Jan 23).It appears there might be movement away from the ranging pattern.Just tell me where to go ( bullish or bearish).

    Sorry Jack: should have been GBP/US ( would like to have said that the “B” key on the keyboard malfunctions ( but then I would have 32% fid) so I own up to my lack of proofreading.
