Make way for this week’s Trade of the Week winner!

Let’s all give a hand for our winner,

Light Yagami!

In his entry, he shorted AUD/USD at market and plans to short another half position at the break of the rising channel. Here’s the lowdown of his plan:

Long or Short: SHORT

Entry Point: Half position at market (1.0687) and the other half when/if the price
retrace the rising channel line

Stop Loss: The high of the candle inside the channel i.e 1.0753.

Profit Target/s: Take half profit when the price hits 100 SMA (yellow line) and move stop loss
to brake even.

Reward-to-risk Ratio: Risking 40-60 pips stop loss in order to win at least 100.

Risk percentage: Risk 2% of your account.

Indicators used: 100 SMA, stochastic (14,5,5), EMA 55

To know more details about his idea, check out his AUD/USD entry right here!
