EUR/USD, 4-hour

EUR/USD 4-hour Chart

Long or Short: Long

Entry Point: 1.4260

Stop Loss: 1.4200

Profit Target/s: 1.4550

Reward-to-risk Ratio: 4.8

Indicators used: Stochastic (14, 3, 3)

Trade Rationale: With the recent numbers that just came out early today, USD showing weak with the terrible NFP, the Euro showing strong with the EU raising the interest rate, should spur some people getting on the carry trade.
