In this article, I will explain how to trade critical price level and use of boxes to see that price has reached key levels.

Higher timeframe for big picture analysis and strong price levels


Strong price level – Resistance


Always use boxes to determine what kind of trade you are in – Trend, Reversal, Counter. In this case, we are trading a reversal trade


A counter/reversal trade

A 1234 in the mapping, but to spot a trigger, you can also use the change of colours to determine change in sentiment. Most important use boxes to determine strength of this trade – this is a 3 week 1234 formation


A possible 1234

Below 16630 has S at 16550-60  16510-20 16410-20. If we are going to see these support levels coming in, then GBPUSD would also WR previous month high

Student wrote email to ask whether this trade is still valid.

Price reached a low of 16567. This was 7 pips away from a said support of 16550-60. If price turns against you then it is always a must to do trade management, especially when it was pointed out that this trade is a counter trend.

How do you know that this trade is valid?

1. As long as price keeps below F6 (Fib-R pt1 to pt4)

2. As long as there is no bullish expansion in H1. If price is above 16670 which was Jan 2014 high, then this is the first sign that a short trade is not good.

As GBPUSD is a counter trend trade, above 16750 is important for the bullish 1234 to complete and for a move towards 17050.
