But now, the picture is coming into sharp focus. There will be a breakout soon and when it happens, it will be explosive! But be careful! The top IS NEAR! Exactly where, still can't tell but it could be around the 1.34600 level where there is a .618 retrace of the overall major trend looming. Here's my 4Hr Chart that is showing the wave 5 wave count and also the breakdown of the choppy wave 4 action.
MY TRADE PLAN
I will BUY on a breakout of the smaller triangle and hold it up to the .618 retrace area @1.34600 or near there. Then I will get out and WAIT for some price action to signal a beginning of a decline.

That last one by Ian Copsey is a very interesting read on wave theory. He has a twist on using and counting waves that seems very interesting. I'm applying some of his methods in my own wave counts and the results are not bad. But again, unless you have a very good foundation, it's kinda of confusing.
