Chip The Chartist Weekly Report – 27-Jan-13

A potential “mini bubble” has occurred here as EURGBP is now up over 10% in 6 months.

It is over 4 years since EURGBP was this much overbought on the Weekly chart and at 71.36 I expect some selling pressure soon. I have highlight previous overbought corrections from levels below 70.

This is interesting because of the extreme overbought condition on the Weekly timeframe – There has not been a reading greater than 70 in over 4 years.

However, any market can remain overbought for some time so some caution is required here and I expect I may need a few bites at the cherry (may get Stopped out once or twice) before I get rewarded with a reasonable sized correction.

I will personally be looking for an entry on the lower timeframe here. I will look to enter when I see strong technical selling evidence on the 1 Hour chart, preferably a breakout to the downside from a tight consolidation (over at least 10 candles (preferably more)) of around 20 – 40 PIPs.

Above the consolidation.

As I am trading against the trend here I will look to take half profits at equal Risk:Reward from my Entry. Then I will use a Trailing Stop the same size (Original Stop – Entry Level).

I expect this uptrend will reconvene after a short term correction from this Overbought level.
