EUR/USD 1-hour Chart

Long or Short: Long
Entry Point: 1.4430
Stop Loss: 1.4380
Profit Target/s: 1.4600
Reward-to-risk Ratio: 3.4:1
Risk percentage: I’ll risk 1% on this trade so I’m hoping for a 3.4% win if it gets triggered then hits my profit target.
Indicators used: RSI (14)

Trade Rationale: EUR/USD is still in a strong uptrend because it’s inside an upward channel on the 1-hour chart. I don’t want to go against the trend so I’ll take a long trade on this pair. Read more…
