Nice trade, West :smt023
The momentum out of a long term extreme can be
pretty impressive, seen at a small timeframe.

Got out on B/E on that one. Working to keep losses small; which has been an issue for me.

A BUY at the red arrow, as price moved out of the yellow zone which has been a zone of interest for me. Missed the initial momentum upward but caught the pull back on the red candle. View of the 15 Minute and Daily charts below...

Quickly stopped out at Break even right when the news hit and spread widened.

Lots of movement this morning, late to the game this morning, most pairs already moved, catching some quick pips here....
I am simply in at the arrow on the breakout.
