I wanted just to ask... do we sometimes in this forum block each other? I thought in those other forums where people are too vulgar and intolerant that they block each other? I was just asking because hard to see other people's comments/response to some posts here whereas you can see there was a certain response. I thought the forum is as much as small community be building here exchanging views and sharing opinion/analysis...

This forum doesn't work so well sometimes. I have sometimes had to refresh the page to get certain responses to show. And I've had responses post, disappear, then reappear later. I don't think there is a block function.

JérémieM On the daily chart this looks like it's pushed too high too fast and should pull back. Shorter term charts it's within a reasonable range (already dropped back) so pullback may not happen today but it is likely. The correction will probably be small, though. Don't expect below 14.2 or so without some kind of special event. But again, ZAR delights in doing the unexpected.

Paul Barrett I am on the same thoughs as you Paul... Nice for us with the USD payments..(although Ghana just on a whim this month increased the tax rate from 25% to 35% so a 10% paycut for me, between that and the fact that I signed my original contract on R15.46/$ I am basically paying to be here hahaha)

Looks like a good EW, I studied that right when I started and found that there are a lot of variables and was difficult for me to do on my own. I wonder how LizaRoo's Dynamic EW worked out and if they predicted this big swing. I also think that the EW would work better on more stable pairs, the ZAR is just so delicate that it reacts wildly to dollar and SA impacts

Funny enough though, If I look at the EW you did the arrow ends at the exact bottom my daily Channel (the one which tracks this uptrend from Feb) shows.. That would be the extreme bottom though in my opinion.
