Trending pairs to watch week commencing 10th Sept

Leia started this thread I have just reviewed my charts and found that 20 of them have their trends on the Daily and 4 hour time-frames in alignment (per my trend definition based on moving average indicators). Thus they are my 'watch list' (some actually have orders pending from Friday and I have an AUD CAD short position open) for next week. Many (especially EUR related) are a long time from being trade-able as they need to post a swing high and re-trace on the 4 hour time frame first. If they keep moving from their present levels I have missed my entrys (which is annoying on both cable and EUR as I was well positioned earlier last week, but just missed order trigger entry on cable and was stopped out for break even on EUR. That however, is trading with the benefit of hindsight. I would rather be out of these markets wishing that I was in them, than in them wishing I was out)

I have placed an order short @ 1.28 50 with a stop at 1.28 90 (risk -40 pips) and three targets, 1 at R1 = 1.28 10 (+40pips) 2 at recent daily low 1.27 40 (+110 pips) and 1 at weekly support 1. 26 80 (+170 pips)

overall 106 pips , so R= 2.65
I have removed orders as price has seen 1.27 44 (almost at target 2)

EUR CAD long

Leia started this thread Daily and 4 hour trends are indicating long
price has retraced 50/61.8% of the previous 4 hour up swing and the last 4 hour candle is a 'trigger' (hammer) type, indicating rejection of lower prices at this point in time

Order to enter long @ 1.24 50, stop 1.24 15 (risk = -35pips)
part 1 = 1.25 40
part 2 = 1.27 40
part 3 = trailing stop
