I know that systems aren’t perfect, but I feel extra sad about it because the loss HAD TO COINCIDE with my not-so-good discretionary trading performance.
Remember my trade on EUR/USD? Well, it turned out to be a loser.
There wasn’t any market-moving report for the euro, but I think rising European bond yields caused the pair to trade below support at the rising trend line and stop me out of my trade at 1.3265. Gaaah!
Long EUR/USD at 1.3327, stopped out at 1.3265: -62 pips/-1.0%
