HLHB Weekly Update – March 23, 2012

EUR/USD didn’t trend this week, so there was really nothing for my HLHB Trend-Catcher system to catch. Boo! On the positive side of things though, I am up on my GBP/USD trade. Yay!

Let me just do a quick update on the GBP/USD trade I took two days ago. The trade turned out to be a promising one as price quickly dropped after consolidating just below the 1.5900 resistance level.

I’m currently up 70 pips or so, so I’m crossing my fingers that my first profit target will get hit. The way, I can reduce risk and move the stop on the rest of my position to breakeven. I’ll monitor this trade for the next couple of days.

XOXO,
