Cross-Eyeing: EUR/GBP – Close Open Orders

Close Open Orders: 2007-02-25 20:40

EUR/GBP did retrace down, but not quite enough to trigger our long orders – missed it by a few pips. The pair looks like it’s back in uptrend mode as it has risen and currently trading around 0.6715, so we will close open orders. We will continue to keep an eye out for new opportunities, so stay tuned!

The Euro has been gaining against the sterling for a few weeks and now we are seeing a retracement from the high near .6760. We will look to scale in long if the pair dips and gives us a better price for a long position in EUR/GBP.

We do have event risks tomorrow with the German Ifo Business data and UK quarterly GDP. If the former is strong and the latter is weak, then we should see support for a long trade and the uptrend to resume.

Long half position EUR/GBP at 0.6690, stop at .6635, pt at 0.6790

Long half position EUR/GBP at 0.6670, stop at 0.6635, pt at .6710

Remember to never risk more than 1% of your account on any single trade, so please adjust your position sizes accordingly.

Good luck and good trading!

    Are you going for 100 pips for the first long trade?

    The second half seems to be a mistake because you are going long at 6670 and your profit target is 6610?
