Re: aud usd - up date

Leia started this thread I have moved my stop on this trade to break even, in the hope that the hourly support level @ 0.92 75 holds over night

the hourly indicates a rejection of 0.92 20 area, lets see if this can hold as support
(Christian is looking to buy dips to 0.92 40 for 0.93) I'm setting a higher target, based on my 4h channel of 0.94, just below this years high

aud jpy

Leia started this thread I have placed an order to go long aud jpy (as well as the aud usd that is already open and stop at breakeven). I missed the first potential entry and am hoping that the last hourly hammer and the overnight low hold for a continued move higher)

Entry 86.80
Stop 86.60
target 88.00
Risk 20 reward 120 - let see if it gets opened

Re: aud jpy

Leia started this thread I have just removed this order as price has moved twice the distance from my entry level that my stop was. First and second opportunity missed puts this one off my watch list for now

It seems that the price is trading in a narrowing range and as there is big news out today I am looking to take a trade in the direction of the break out of the range. Broadly long above 1.53 00 and short below 1.51 00 (fx500 club have notified of similar set ups, Christian is looking to continue buying the low 1.51 85 to the top of the range 1 52.60)

eur gbp

Leia started this thread Daily trend is down, last 4hrly candle shooting star

but, last swing low was higher low, 4 hourly 20 is above 50 which is bullish, how ever below Daily 20 which is bearish

Conflicting signals on this pair, will the daily down trend hold or will the pull back be further. I have left a few pips of breathing space to hopefully avoid my position being opened and then price whizzing off long and taking out my stop.

Lets see the last short trade on this pair was a very good one for me
