The trend was down the entire day.
Today I only looked for short trades.
News events to watch for today :
The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5369 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5387. Since I was 19 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level, I decided to put my initial target at 1.5350.
Entry: Short at 1.5369 Stop: 1.5387 Target: 1.5350
3:00am EST- Unfortunately I was stopped out of my trade. (-18 pips)
The entry was at the close of the candle at 1.5358 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5423. Since I was only 8 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level (1.5350), I decided to go for the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade, which in this case was 65 pips. This put my initial target at 1.5293.
Entry: Short at 1.5358 Stop: 1.5423 Target: 1.5293
11:45am EST- Unfortunately my target wasn’t hit by this time. Since it was approaching noon and the market looked to be bottoming out at 1.5300, I went ahead and manually exited my trade. I closed out at 1.5313. (+45 pips)
Trade Result: -18 +45= +27 Pips R-Multiple: -1.00; 0.69
