Seriously it was an acceptable set up and risk to reward ratio
No point trading with the benefit of hind-sight or thinking 'coulda, woulda, shoulda'

USD CAD long

Leia started this thread My daily indicator is long, 4 hour is flat (previously short)
The last 4 hour candle indicated rejection of lower prices at this time (very very long 'tail' / wick)

I have placed an order to enter this pair long @ 1.02 50, with a stop at 1. 01 95 (risk -55pips) with the usual target split
T1 = R1 = +55pis @ 1.03 10
T2 = recent resistance@ 1.03 35 (85pips, if seen R1)
T3 = trailing stop to next monthly resistance level of 1.04 50 (200 pips, if seen)

Re: Seeking consistency

Have you got some aggregated results from this testing yet? What's the overall performance looking like?
