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

November 12, 2017 by Andriy Moraru

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:
