ChowClown started this thread GU - i'm long from 5865, looking for 95, initial sl 5846. My MT platform is down so just trading the round numbers in the absence of the usual s&r lines i refer to.

stops to b/e, not sure this will have the legs for the tgt.

Edit: 09:54 - have MT charts back again and significant R at current level, so expecting the b/e fill and looking for the short entry.

Edit: 10:04 - b/e stops filled. Flat. Waiting for poss GU short..

..if it gets there, will take 3/5ths off around 45 and move remaining stops to b/e.

Edit: 10:29 - stops to b/e.
Edit: 10:34 - b/e filled, got down to 48 so missed the 1st TP. Flat.
