Seeking Alpha Analyst Since 2012
Yesterday I was trying to tweet all my trades and but then became discombobulated because it was very difficult to tweet, trade and perform other duties so I then decided to just take my best and worst trades of the day at close and discuss what went right & wrong, technically.
EURAUD was channeling and I anticipated the lower high at around 1.5673. From there I took at short position at 1.56493 with a stop @ 1.5674 (risking 0.16%) and I targeted 1.55018 (reward of 0.95%). This had a risk-reward ratio of 5.9375. Currently EURAUD appears to be making another lower high at 1.56418 and although it broke the resistance trend line I will be looking for the opportunity to short again.
Although the overall trend of XAGUSD was down I expected a reversal through the inner trend channel. Thus I took a long position at 19.785. Unfortunately XAGUSD hit resistance at 19.867 and made another leg down. I was stopped out at 19.563, a 1.13% loss. The trend in XAGUSD remains down but it is against the resistance trend line. Hopefully it can break resistance this time.
