It’s been a story of wait wait wait this week. Sometimes you get off work early and sometimes you have to do nearly a full shift.
This morning I went short on EURUSD, a lovely little pattern and the other pairs also looked like shorting. As EURUSD had the clearer pivots to hang my hat and coat on I took that trade. It sat there for nearly 2 hours and jumped about….I took it off for BreakEven at 10:50 and that was a great call as the pair moved steadily north not long after.
Cable showed better traction in a bullish mood and I took a long position at 14:33 @ 1.5165 risking 20 pips. My targets were then at 1.5185 for 2/3rds and 1.5205 for the final third. Target 2 was hit on the hour, so time to wrap up for the day! Copy of trade is shown below.
Off to London tomorrow, might get a chance to get a few hours in before I leave and horse racing at Newmarket on Friday, again might be able to slip a few hours in before the off. Or I just might take the 2 days off – it’s summer after all!!
