EUR/GBP Is Showing Long-Term Bullish Consolidation on Weekly

November 12, 2017 (Last updated on January 20, 2018) by

The euro is in an uptrend against the British pound since July 2015. However, the trend is stalling in a triangle-like consolidation since October 2016. The current form of the pattern lets traders conclude in favor of its validity. It can now be used as a breakout trade setup.

You can see the triangle delimited with the yellow lines on the chart screenshot below. The horizontal cyan line shows the breakout entry point; it is placed at 10% of the triangle’s base width above the upper border. The horizontal cyan line shows my potential target level; it uses 100% of the same distance. I will place my stop-loss order at the low of the breakout candle unless it trades mostly outside the pattern — then I will use the low of the previous candle. I will cancel the setup in case of a bearish breakout. You can see a full-size chart by clicking on the image:

Update 2018-01-20: The setup is no longer valid as the lower border has been violated. I am cancelling my entry order:
