Risked 0.1% on the entry (which was before the break)

In addition I'm risking 1% on the break of the bar with a larger SL on that one.

TP1: Around 1.5800

Cheers
Got stopped out for -1.1% total

Hello Shaun, thanks for the journal. I am just registering my interest in it and letting you know it is being read. I trade a lot of your pairs all long term with daily and weekly charts. I do lots of NZD. And AUD. I am in 3 TRY positions at the moment, eurtry, sgdtry and audtry.

Itís a bit cheeky of me but I thought it would improve your journal if when you give your updates for stopped out & your profits. You could give an updated chart screen shot. Possibly with a link (quoted from) to your original chart entry post.

Anyway good trading to you and kind regards.

Jason

Hi Jason, are you short those pairs?

I truly appreciate your input. Thing is though, I'm a full-time student with lots of activities outside school which makes time a problem for me. But I will try and update my best, after all thats why I'm doing this.

Regards

No I am long on my try's, taking the other side of your trade.

I am still looking for an entry on usd/try. If you let me know where your stop is on your short, I will seriously consider it as an entry.

Jason, I posted a chart on my post when I went short USDTRY. Can't you see it?

My stop is at 1,82784 based on that if price breaks this level and closes above... it indicates for me that the double top won't hold. But on the other hand it is not an exact science so it may bloody well turn at that point as well.

We are currently trading into 1.7500, lets see if the news tomorrow can contribute to a stronger turkish yen.
