Trading Cross Pairs with Finesse Using the Platinum Methodology
Good Morning Platinum Traders,
Welcome to the Platinum Educational Trading Articles.

If there is any way we can help you here in other means other than trading please let us know.
One of the biggest challenges Traders face
One of the biggest problems traders have is selecting the pairs to trade and often with the available 72 currencies to trade, you are left in a situation of too many to chose from.
The Platinum Trader believes in being SELECTIVE. If there are no trades, what would you rather do? Lose trades or be out of the trading markets? Just think about that next time you are in a moment of indecision. Platinum Traders are taught the simple philosophy of “when in doubt stay out.” Trading is like a marriage. Take your time to select the right one and don’t hold on too long if you are in the wrong one!
So enough of my marriage guidance for the week. Let’s talk about the magic cross pair trade that we foresee taking place in the very near term that with the correct risk management and patience, could make you over 1000 fx pips.
At Platinum, our elite traders use a principle called the FOREX INTELLIGENCE UNIT that allows them to predict the price of a currency pair within 20-30 pips on non-news event days. That’s what we call trading with finesse. If you would like to know more about the FOREX INTELLIGENCE UNIT, then book a free session with me this week as I am genuinely only focusing on mega expert trades for the next 25 days.
In this session, I shall cover Institutional Strategies that will change your trading forever. Now let’s come straight to the point! The pair we want to talk about this week is CAD/JPY. This pair is looking absolutely beautiful to go all the way and I mean a 1000 pips move indeed.
PLATINUM TECHNICAL ANALYSIS:
RULE NUMBER ONE FOR THE TRADE:

Platinum Tutorial on A Reverse Head And Shoulder Chart
The Reverse Head And Shoulders Pattern is just the opposite of the Head and Shoulders Pattern. It is also a very reliable pattern and that is a reason for its popularity. It is a reversal pattern and is formed after a downtrend. Reverse Head and Shoulder pattern consist of the following:
In continuation of the downtrend the price goes down further to form a new low or first peak, known as left shoulder, and then make a high.
Continuing the left shoulder high, again the price goes down to a new low, lower than the left shoulder forming a middle peak known as head of the pattern and goes up to the previous high.
It is formed when the price goes down again from the high of the head, but not as low as the Head and comes up again forming the third peak or right shoulder.
It is the line drawn through the top of the Left Shoulder, Head and the Right Shoulder and serves as an important support for this pattern.
The pattern is only considered reliable and complete when the price goes up and closes above the neckline and there is often increase in volume.
Theoretically, the Head and Shoulders pattern should be symmetrical. It means that the left and right shoulders should form peak about the same price level and are equally distanced from the Head. But practically, you rarely see such symmetrical Head and Shoulder patterns in real time. However, sometimes the left Shoulder is higher than the right shoulder or vice versa. But the Head always have the highest peak. It is not necessary also that the peaks formed in this pattern to be sharp, it may be pointed to round shape. Therefore, it is not necessary that the neckline should be horizontal, it can be sloping upwards or downwards.
With the formation of the Reverse Head and Shoulder, there is a continuous decrease in the Volume. That means volume will be higher in the left shoulder and eventually it decreases with the formation of head and right shoulder.
This is the vertical distance from the tip of the head till the neckline. It is usually used to set the rough potential price target. However, other technical indicators must also be considered here as well.
