I am simply in at the arrow on the breakout.


A quick and easy 18 pips is always a good thing. Good job

Just quick glancing at your chart had it moved another 100 pips that would had been a range of about 170 for the day. More then likely not gonna happen from AJ right now, so you did the smart thing and took your money.

Thanks V8, yeah glad I at least got some.
I guess there will always be another day - that is what I love about trading.
...another day to recommit, another day to give it my best, another day to learn more about myself for better or worst.
You guys have an awesome weekend.

Got out for +2.5 pips. . . I didn't like how USD pairs were reversing.
