Hi, in recent weeks we have seen a lot of choppy markets and many major pairs do not fit the rules of my strategy nor my plan.
I look at lots of different pairs or use an alternate strategy or a mixture.
Ashley and his fellow traders in the forum shared a lot of winning trades last week that were a mixture of M2 & Earth &Sky. I mention all the time that you need to be flexible to be a successful trader. These guys are doing it and sharing in real time, so get in there.
Sometimes I might only have one trade in a week, but if the risk-reward is good I don’t need many winning trades to have a successful month. I showed that in January:
Trade for clients & receive a substantial profit share
If you want to receive a substantial profit share you only need to make 3 to 5% per month. You can find a copy of the brochure here: Trade for Clients
Cryptocurrencies: Members of my crypto advisory site have seen fantastic gains many over 500% since last May, Those who joined in January have seen over 200% and one of my portfolio coins is up 1800% this year alone. $500 bought on the 1st January is now valued at $9000 in 10 weeks!! I advised them to take some profits yesterday.

Bitcoin: I do not trade it but have been buying since $8130 this time last year. It broke $60,000 last week then pulled back. If it pulls back again around $50.00 I will buy more- I think it’s quite capable of hitting $100,000 by the summer if not sooner- see the video.
The Forex Week Ahead.
I said last week ” do not be greedy at the moment. A lot of trades won last week but for 50/60 pips and then reversed. These are choppy markets, move stops to entry and or take some profits.”
Last weeks news was mixed and this week there isn’t a right lot of it. However, there are a LOT of speeches by central bankers, which might cause some movement-so whats the plan?
Most of the majors are still too messy, so I have looked for opportunities elsewhere and have a few A grade setups as ever.
€uro/$: THis is too messy now for me. Zoom out and watch on the weekly. 1.1600 is the first place I will consider a long. I said in recent weeks that it “couldn’t make its mind up” wow did I get that right!
Chf: Same: Worked again last week “watch 0.9235 and especially 0.9150 for a long.” I still prefer a short higher up at 0.9550 now
Euro/Gbp: Failed to break the trendline yet again. I only want to short, preferably a pullback to 0.8680 or 0.8740- the other choice is to wait for it to break the trendline, then pullback. see the video
Gbp/$: Same as last week…1.3400 long is a zoomed out entry. Intraday 1.3760 is an area to watch but it’s not an A grade for me. Leaving for now.
$/Yen: 108.00 possible long. If you do take it do not be greedy. 110.00 is huge previous support and resistance and there is a weekly trendline not far above- see the video. Swing traders will be looking to short there.
Cad: MIxed news last week. My bias is still short but on a pullback. 1.2670 is the first area for me.
Euro/Cad. I do like the look of this one. I will short at 1.4990 if it pullsback
Gbp/Cad: I might consider a long for now only shorts- see the video.1.7600 is a good area to consider.
Nzd: Flip flopped: If it just drops then I will be interested to long at 0.7080/0.7100
Nzd/Chf: Not a pair I trade but one of my private students points out that 0.6550 looks good to long.
Aud: Even less clear. Zoom out entry is 0.7360/7400 area.
Aud/Cad: I will risk half on a swing trade long at 0.9600. More cautious entry is wait for Earth & Sky “signal” see the video and forum for examples last week.
Euro/Yen 128.00 is a good place for a long for me.
Euro/Aud: 1.5630 for a short
Euro/Nzd: I will short if it pulls back to 1.6960
Nzd/Cad: I will short if it moves back up to 0.9090. Good risk reward- see the video.
Gbp/Nzd: Worked again last week but its looking range bound and might break higher now. I am not as confident but …1.9400 is still “the sweet spot” to short.
M3 Shorter timeframes
See the (non-members will have to sign up to view) new course & recent blog posts as to how I do this: I do my analysis on daily and weekly charts first and make a note of the MAJOR areas of support and resistance. Then copy them on to Pierre’s Earth and sky template. Then I make a note of the weekly & monthly pivots points and add them to the charts. You will see lots of opportunities line up during the week. The important thing then is to select a bias for the next few days and do NOT take trades if the price is too near a trend line or pivot. Ideally, you want to buy when the price is near a major support and or pivot point line and has the potential to make at least 40 pips. Vice versa for a short.
New members, please note: If I am looking to take a trade long, for example, 1.5000, I place my order 10 pips above & 10 pips below for a short. This is because price often does not quite reach a major line and you need to allow for spreads.
