EUR/USD potential Non-failure Swing Bottom?
A failure swing is a pattern that technical analyst used to enter positions in anticipation of a trend reversal. In other words, a position is taken against the current trend.
- Buy signals may occur on breaks above points B & D for potential upside move;
- A technical trader who believes that a Non-failure Swing Bottom pattern is developing will wait for price to return lower; in this case near to the 1.1105 support area, before opening new long positions for the 1.1404 potential target;
- Another method that a technical trader may apply is to wait for market confirmation of a break above points B or D before entering new longs;
- The pattern is deemed incomplete if price fails to hold above point C; a technical trader may then decide to abandon the idea of entering new longs and open new positions in the direction of the prevailing trend.
