Mr. Mcleod, I was under the impression that a compromise would be EURO bearish, since the USD will gain strength from avoiding the fiscal cliff.

Tomorow a little bit lower and give support.
Goodnight from Europe.
Good luck with the trades.

Politicians have always been playing their game like this - this game is several hundred years old - its like the stories you used to read about at school as a young boy - the fiscal cliff will be sorted and if they don't then economical impact will be minimal - and TV's job is to make it as extravagant as possible - making it like an action movie - but you need to remember that a politicians priority number one is to get re-elected and they will therefore do what ever needed to please the public. That why I am have been buying and this is something I have been communicating to the forum for the last few weeks.

The market also believes that what he does is good so I will not stand in the way if we trade higher.
As an economist however I wish that they would let just let all companies/countries that can't stand on their on feet go bankrupt so we can get a fresh start - but that's my personal view and nothing that we can trade on right now.

Wow the spreads are sooo high right now... Looking at 14.6 spread for Eur/usd........

I agree bankruptcy would be the way to go for a few nations. The news is fun to watch, and can cause small moves. But the real picture, and better to watch is the larger time frames. Daily, Weekly.

Do you mind explaining a little on the 3 colors rectangles you have on the chart following the prices, and what do WSI means?

weekly chart looks very interesting.

So now that everything went according to plan, what's next? The charts look quite tricky to me, in a way that nothing really would surprise me form this point. The 4H chart looks like a cup and handle (also on cable), but a trip to 1.2830 looks just as possible as one to 1.3050, we just need to find out which one will come first? At some point it would be good to finally close the gap in USD/CHF at 0.9183 but there's no guarantee it won't stay open for another 6 months...

So far so good.. GOld made it to 1722.. Euro made it to 2950ish and cashing EJ for 100+ pips with one still intact..

YEN 82.22 resis so let's get the ball rolling...
Patience is virtue. The sooner we learn this all, sooner we can start walking to the bank. Good Luck to all of us
The trick is to wait the price meet ur limits, instead of one jumping in.. however scalps is a totally different scenario and is not everyone's cup of tea

Break of the bottom (i) on WSI momentum was the principal confirmation to go short. What it actually signals is that the momentum value of one lower degree cycle has been successfully contested & broken by a 5 wave impulse.

By counter trend it is meant that this trade is supported by 2 cycle levels only. If it were more than 2 cycles, it would be a trending trade with much more potential.
In the current case, If you couple the principal confirmation spoken of above, with the confirmation that the w2-4 line of the last advance wave is broken, then you can envision the 2-cycle confirmations spoken of. To abort the trade, one of these 2 cycles would have to revert. This means that I would need to see a break > the top momentum value of the last advance wave broken above (>1.18 in this case), if I am to call the anticipated 3-move down trend, merely a smaller internal cyclic correction or flat.
Break > 1.18 in this case erodes one cycle, and calls the larger higher degree 3-wave corrective bear trend, (estimated to test 2835-2805)- that I am currently trading over. The position should then be aborted at market or slight retraction down towards entry levels.
Hope, the explanation helps, & I have not made it sound too confusing or complex.

WSI stands for wave segregation index. The indicator should be used to segregate between the different market cycles, by telling which cycle is moving in a 5 wave impulse at a specific time.
The concept is to multiply any oscillator by the ADx or DI of the ADx. By doing so this oscillator gets accelerated to show its Elliot structure (if the market or cycle is advancing). If it’s not advancing it will stay muted within it’s internal cyclic level bands (because it is simply not accelerating).
Because momentum leads price, Trade wise, the aim is to build an ea that engages the market once specific index #s or levels are breached on the WSI, signaling acceleration, coupled with such acceleration breaching a wave 2-4 line breach on momentum. The wave 2-4 line would also be imputed by specific momentum numeral values on the ea. On such a condition maturing, the trader is confirmed that a specific local support / resistance price “cycle” level will be tested, to take profits at (this too be manually imputed on the ea).
For longer term cycle trading, the breach of the specific local support / resistance price level, (3 ea parameters here) needs to concur, so that entries can be auto made.
Versions of the ea are still to be coded at codebase. And I intend to pass round for beta-testing if anyone would be interested.
For more theoertical reading on segregation analysis itself, please go to the blog - though I am sorry to say, that blog material gets removed on & off for updating and corrections, & I am some what back ward on this.
