Losing Trades

FX_jake started this thread Sold USDCAD at 1.1605
Stop at 1.1685
Target #1 1.1490
Target #2 1.1250


AUDJPY Long Trade
Bought at 76.40
Stop loss at 74.70
Target 1: 78.20
Target 2: 79.50


NZDJPY
Bought at 60.85
Stop loss at 59.29
Target 1: 62.80
Target 2: 66.00


Obviously, these were all losers. I hate losers, but they sometimes happen. There really isn't anything I would have done differently here on these trades, I had a good look at them after they were stopped out. Unfortunately sometimes we get breakouts when expecting these s/r zones to hold.

Will wait for the next setup and will post it. Looks like it will have to be next week. Have a great weekend!

Both EUR/AUD and GBP/CHF look really nice at the moment, I will post more when I enter the trades.

Maybe I will sell the EUR/AUD later.

For now, I have bought the GBP/CHF at 1.7635
Stop at 1.7377
Will hopefully see this to 1.7720 and beyond

GBP/CHF up over 100 pips now, will move stop to +10 pips and take some profit. Still looking for another 100 pips more or so.

EUR/AUD would have been a great trade, up over 200 pips, but did not take it.

Out of the GBP/CHF with +90 pips, the really big bad looking bearish candle suggests this is going to fall right now.......

Brilliant trading! The 91.20 target is a bit ambitious though, unless you can withstand the inevitable pull back and refuse to take profit early.
