The EUR/USD bull phase follows three days on the bear side that produced a 0.1% price increase. Mainly a wash, before spreads.
The EUR/JPY whipsaw was a day longer and similarly unproductive in the bear phase: A 0.2% price increase.
The USD/JPY bull phase that appeared this morning has since disappeared, a behavior, known as cheshring, that is common to Person's Proprietary Signal. The word "cheshiring" comes from the Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland, who has the habit of disappearing, leaving behind only a grin.
For the pps, cheshiring behavior today will often lead to a solid signal tomorrow. But no guarantees.
If the signal should come solidly into place today, the preceding eight days in bear phase would have produced a 1.7% decline in price and so was profitable.
The analysis uses the daily Person's Proprietary Signal, developed by John Person, and the monthly Person's Pivot, which he also developed.
These are black box signals -- the "proprietary" means that Mr. Person knows how they work under the hood, and I don't. But they have shown a fair degree of success in identifying good entry and exit points, and I find them useful.
On the glance, "pps open" means the price at the start of trading in the United States on the day the signal appeared.
