Winner: 2011-5-30 00:00

Aaand the votes are in! Drum roll please! So many brilliant ideas, but one stood out from the rest. The winner of the Trade of the Week Contest for May 16 to 20, 2011 is none other than newbie poster salt-n-pipper!

Here’s salt-n-pipper’s trade idea:

USD/CAD Daily Chart

Long or Short: Short
Entry Point: .9800
Stop Loss: .9900 or the close of the first candle above the trendline
Profit Target/s: .9500 (previous low)
Reward-to-risk Ratio: 3:1
Risk percentage: 0.50%
Indicators used: Stochastic (14,3,3)
