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 1.5753 with a stop at the most recent swing high at 1.5762. Since I was only 3 pips away from the nearest 50 or 00 level and the same amount of pips I was risking on the trade was less than 10, I had to make a decision. Was this trade worth the entry. In this case where both target options are smaller than 10 pips, it is ok to sit the trade out. However, if you do decide to enter it is best to go for the next 50 or 00 level, which in this case was 1.5700.
Entry: Short at 1.5753 Stop: 1.5762 Target: 1.5700
