GBP/USD Candlestick Patterns

Recognized Bullish Chart Patterns
Inverted Hammer Timeframe: 30 Minutes
Reliability: Low
A reversal pattern.
During a downtrend, the open is lower, then it trades higher, but closes near its open, therefore looking like an inverted lollipop. It needs bullish verification on the next candlestick.
Recognized Bearish Chart Patterns
Doji Star Bearish Timeframe: Monthly
Reliability: Moderate
A reversal pattern.
During an uptrend, the market builds strength on a long white candlestick and gaps up on the second candlestick. However, the second candlestick trades within a small range and closes at or near its open. This scenario generally shows erosion of confidence in the current trend. Confirmation of a trend reversal would be a lower open on the next candle.

Expected range continued to fall prospects at 1.5069-1.5383 by next week of the TSF. If you come beyond the 1.5383, the return rate entering to 1.55.

Personally I placed my stop above the 4H pattern while my opening was at 123.94 and will be leaving it for at least 3 days to see how it works out before closing it .

My entry was at 123.88, SL 124.61, I'll be sitting on this trade for a while also.

that was a pretty bad GDP m/m miss for CAD. will 125 be the new support or prove another false breakout? I am leaning towards the former for now but early days yet.

No Sean , what were they? The governor had made a comment that he expected it to be quite below par, but the market looks to not have priced this in yet.
