I'll post a chart tomorrow.
Got stopped out for -1%, which was a bummer... price turned at my SL. Typical .

Below I've attached a H1 chart in which I based my stoploss on... I will strictly try to not base my SL's (or anything else) on H1 charts again. I'm just not ready for that. My SL is at the bottom horizontal line.

My current positions

Shuanl0ol started this thread I'm long gold with a 2% risk, and I'm long AUDCAD with 1% risk and currently have placed a limit buy on USDSEK.

I'm in the money on the two trades I'm in (AUDCAD and Gold) for now at least.

EURSEK and USDJPY

Shuanl0ol started this thread I'm currently long USDJPY 82,455 (its in a draw down at the moment). I went long EURSEK too. However my long EURSEK position resulted in a 2% loss.

I'll be holding my USDJPY position over the weekend, SL is held at 81.80 (2% risk).

Cheers

USDJPY update and new trade

Shuanl0ol started this thread Hi peeps,

I was stopped out on my USDJPY trade for -1.6%. I decided to close the trade early since price had reached no mans land.

I set a short limit order on GBPCAD yesterday which was hit today, trade is currently +72 pips and my target is around 1.56.

Cheers

Got out on my GBPCAD trade for a loss (-1%), managed to reduce my loss to a 1/2 of my original risk, bla bla bla.
