Nice BB
My entry today was on a similar thought pattern - didn't wait for confirmation and went in on an up-bar at the line

Still holding atm. Maybe should have taken the 20. Dunno.

Hi News

Those entries just make whole lot sense now.

My exit strategy, I currently using 5min wave violation as exit. Why? What i noticed was in 1hr swing price will honour, 90% time all 5min wave patterns until price is ready to turn and start a new swing in opposite direction and 4hr swing will honour 90% time all 15min wave patterns, again until it price is ready to turn and start and a new 4hr swing. Or if price hits a zline i will get ready to just exit.

nb:just be aware a long breakout movement, price may well bounce around in it for awhile.

This how i traded the interest rate drop on euro last thursday on EurUsd. To be honest i didnt find out about the news until thursday evening :D I just thought they were on grab for held money left below the position. Lucky i guess.

I had to snip the drop it was compressing the chart so you can't see the detail.

Nice miss bettlebox - I am pretty familiar with that feeling myself

Have you noticed that the moves that really power away from your area of interest leave early.

My thought is that there is so much competition to enter that the Demand overwhelms supply a little higher than the ideal place ( or vice versa) - and they are the ones I really wanted to be taking a ride on. :)

Hi Pug

yea think you are right price couldnt hold down in that area.

EURUSD trade today:
Price was down in morning i was thinking long for some strange reason.

Finally got setup to upside, i do that some times and ignore what price action is tell and over ride it. I always, ALWAYS second guess it wrong lol.
