Arecom, where did you read about the angles & ratios that you talk about?

GBPUSD WEEKLY COUNT: UPDATED
I went back over my weekly count I posted last week, and I found two instances where I had what I consider to be a corrective wave as a motive wave. The first was the second minor wave down from the 2008 top which is now part of blue wave (2). Thanks to Stanchiam for pointing that out. The second was the first minor wave up from the 2009 bottom which is now part of the ending truncated diagonal. After making these changes, the count has become even more bullish. I have a 3H count I'll post as well.

That WAS my view ... has changed this past week because the move higher has developed in a more bullish manner that cannot be reconciled with the flat... as the short term structure is just not consistent with a top in the 1.6148-1.6225 area (I had 1.6138-96 personally...)

GBPUSD 3H COUNT
I think the Pound may be forming a series of bullish 1-2s and is getting ready to blast off into a series of wave 3s. If you are short this pair on the daily/hourly timeframe I'd be very cautious if you see a consolidation pattern starting to form over the next week.

Interesting. I'm putting my sell order back out on open, if I have time. If it moves through 1.6184, depending on the strength/force of the move, I may change my view. There are 2 other options that brings the price in slightly above the likely target area. One was expressed in a previous post at 1.6165. The other is 2.618 of the 3 wave move that preceded the current 5 wave move which is 1.6289 which is slightly higher than the 1.17% area in the post you referenced. Anyway, I'd like to see what your thinking is.

GBPUSD W1 22 APRIL 2012
GBPUSD wave development must match with other energies, S&P and Dow Jones. I do not know whether it can break the upper trendline or not. I can see that it will go up for another two more months.

Seems that Gbp/Usd is ready for more gains within zig-zag started on Jan 2012. But we shoudl see strong bearish reversal this year. 1.62 and 1.64 are figures to keep an eye on

This Aussie count esthetically "looks" good. A=C could be accepted. Counting around I've found that 423.6 is common expansion of the first wave of the movement being same degree or not. Start to think seriously of new highs inline with Ahmed alternate of a diagonal triangle for wave 5. This move could be 4 or B of 3 of the diagonal triangle. A move below 1.0225 will invalidate this wave count.
Aerocom, I'm also interested in those ratios, could you elaborate?

I think the take away on the Gbp$ is that there is a consensus that the price will increase but variance on how much.

Yes. The ratios are from some information I obtained that is attributed to "Bryce Gilmore." He has some publications that are quite expensive and Software that is available for esignal, also expensive, about A$5k. Anyway, one of the things that interested me, especially while reading Ian's book was the ratios that applied in market movements. As you my have already discovered, the fib ratio's are nearly always approximate.

According to Gilmore the most important geometric ratio is 1. Now, I have also found 2 to be an important number in the markets which Gilmore lists as an Expanding Cardinal ratio and an Expanding ratio of a square. For instance, when price overshoots 1, it will often terminate in the area of 1.05+/- percent, which is in the area of 1 + the rhythmic of (0.111 / 2.)
I have found that when viewing the price movement, if it is following a certain rhythmic movement, the Golden mean as an example, the ratios in that grouping will apply. For instance, the Expanding ratios of the golden mean according to Gilmore are 1.272, 1.618, 2.058, 2.618 and, 3.33. The Contracting ratios are .236, .300, .486, .618, .786.
In application,when I viewed the $yen, in this regard, I came to a conclusion that 1 and 2.058 were the operative ratios and 2.058 was a ratio on the Golden mean. Therefore, .486 would likely be a limiting ratio in any contraction. The $yen did turn in that area. Now, 2.05 is also close to the Cardinal Expanding ratio 2, in which case .5 could not be ruled out.
This is probably too technical for most here But, you can contact me if you want to chat further.

Yesterday, I posted that the .707 ratio was the ratio in play and set the likely target for the low in wave D. As a result of the discussion, I further analyzed the possibilities in this pair. Specifically, I looked at further ratios in the cardinal ratio sequence and the ratios of a square. In doing so, I assumed that my analysis yesterday of wave a of D is complete and wave a of D is 1475p.
With that assumption, a .707 retracement of D would yield a target of 1.6312. With that in mind, I then set out to find if there were other ratios in the movement that would confirm that the rhythms in the Gbp$ are in relation to the square or if they are cardinal ratios. Most are the same but, the cardinal ratios include 3.00, 2.236, 1.732 and 1.618. The Gbp$ price at 1.6148 has exceeded that lower ratios and 1.6148 is 1.875% of i on my chart. The ratio 1.875 is an arithmetic ratio within the sacred ratios. The next likely ratio is the number 2, which is a ratio on both the cardinal and rhythmic ratio of square line.
The price of the Gbp$ at 2 is 1.6170. The next Expanding ratio of a square is 2.828 which would give a price of 1.6315, consistent with the .707 of 1.6312.
Another option? Alternate count in red which likely means a diagonal is the operative pattern. If it is a diagonal, price cannot exceed 1.6269. Here wave (a) would be 176p and would be 1.41% of wave "a." Then 2 times wave (a) would equate to the reactionary target 1.6148 the actual value is 1.6142. But, 2.828 times wave (a) would equate to 1.6276. A and C are equal at 1.6265.
This would yield a slight revision in my previous target and a turn in the area of 1.6265 to 1.6315.

I short the JPY last week Friday because i still think that is wave 4 on the top. No so fast yet come to the end.

Covered Swissie at about BE. Will reshort on confirmed weakness, which I think we'll see later this week.

AUDUSD 3H COUNT
I see two scenarios for the Aussie, both of which have the move down from late February as corrective. Because I count white wave 1 as an impulse, I am going with that as my preferred count. However, there's that pesky triangle, which would be an (x) wave in my alternative count. Either way, I am bullish on this pair and looking for some kind of bullish confirmation before I enter.

That move like this one moved up, then side ways for 2 months then up and sideways for about 4 months before moving up again. A similar move here would target 109+ in the $yen. Which as I posted previously is near the terminus of wave 2 of the 5th wave ED.
On another note, the DOW futures has moved up for 37 months, not including April, June would be the 40th month. That is a 3.5 year bull run and an extreme even in good times. If we haven't started down already, we should by the first of June to the first of July. The high may have been put in in March like it was in 2002. If not, May will mark the end with a new high. The Dow has a data with a low in Oct. It should be a minor low that should continue down at least into Feb of 2013 and possibly later.
