AUD CAD long

Leia started this thread both daily and 4H trends are long

Price has retraced 50 of the last 4H up move and printed a trigger candle just above this weeks low (last weeks early resistance, perhaps turning to support)

I have placed and order with the trend (against the bold 4H counter trend trigger candle) just above the previous daily swing high (resistance turns to support, perhaps) at 1.05 20 with a stop just below the lows at 1.04 90 (risk -30 pips) with a target one of 1.06 20 (+100pips) R=3 and a second target of the weekly swing high at 1.07 20 (+200 pips)

comments as for the AUD USD counter trend, but a valid strategy trade never the less

Order opened, price has moved to 1.05 50 (+30pips) and in line with plan stops are at break even.

Order has opened and is moving strongly up (with the trend, against my position) expect to be closed out for -60 pips imminently

AUD NZD & EUR CHF and GBPJPY

Leia started this thread Five charts have printed 4H trigger candles overnight (during the Asian session) with the daily and 4H trends, but against strong weekly candles

The antipodean currencies against the euro (and swissie). The GBPJPY pair has also printed a trigger candle

As there are so many, I am setting orders on them all at 50% my usual stake (since EUR and CHF are often a 'mirror' entering a half position on each usually equates to a full stake on just one). I am also very aware of the weekly candles indicating a reversal in the recent euro weakness, but these all match my trading plan and so I am going to take them

Orders placed at 50% re-tracement of the 4H 'trigger' candles
Long AUD CHF 1.02 28 stop 1.02 00 (risk 28) target 1.05 00 (reward 272) R=10
Long NZD CHF 79.22, stop 79.00 (risk 22) target 81.00 (reward 177) R= 8
Short EUR AUD 1.17 43, stop 1.17 75 (risk 33), target 1.16 00 (reward 142) R=4
Short EUR NZD 1.51 63, stop 1.52 05 (risk 43), target 1.49 75 (reward 187) R=4
Short GBP JPY 122 .93, stop 123.20 (risk 23), target 120.00 (reward 292) R=11

AUD USD long

Leia started this thread The counter trend trade at the start of the week did not work out despite the daily chart still looking over stretched (along way from its moving averages and ascending trend-line, around previous resistance) I have placed an order with the trend based on the last two four hour bars which are indicating a reluctance of price accepting lower levels at this point in time (hammer type candle shapes) at around the 50 61.8% re-tracement level of this weeks up move on the four hourly chart

Order entry at 1.05 30 with a stop at 1.04 90 (risk -40 pips) and a target of the next daily resistance around 1.06 30 (reward +100 pips) R=2.5

Price has (just) seen 1.05 70 (+40) which was my risk value and so in line with my strategy I have moved my stop to break even @ 1.05 30
