  • Switching Gears In EUR/AUD Trade 0 comments

    The following is from ForexAlerts.ca . They recently launched their service and have been profitable every month since inception. Here are their trading results. If you'd like to be a profitable currency trader I highly recommend them.

    Below is from today's premium content highlighting a EUR/AUD trade where we shorted it and covered for nearly 300+ pips in total. Feel free to review how we helped subscribers capture those gains. I also want to elaborate on our strategy on this pair going forward.

    When viewing weekly charts of the EUR/AUD and EUR/NZD it's clear that the leader is EUR/AUD. The recent pullback in these 2 pairs was simply normal profit taking after a strong run up and these pairs will likely resume their uptrend any day.

    Using the below ranges on EUR/AUD, when this pair trades down between those levels, then both pairs will be a buy as the long term trend resumes itself.

    July 9, 2013 - "Keep an eye on EUR/AUD tonight as it's approaching our level to trim 1/2 position at 1.39847?

    We mentioned yesterday that our first target to take profits is 1.3983. We took profits, but we are still holding a short position we established on July 5th @1.4173. Our target remains 1.3874. Please remember that all our levels are +/- 5-15 pips!

    Update: We did in fact close this trade via twitter as it neared our 2nd trade at 1.3915
