GBPUSD 5 mins trading signal

April 12, 2011 Leave a comment

As you already know by now, valid signals present themselves in many forms and pairs throughout the day. Likewise the above holds true.

However as it is post London/Europe and only NY is awake now, liquidity is thin and hence it signals time for bed.

If this presented itself in another time during the day, I would set Stop Loss below 1.6360 (SMA200) and Target Profit @ 1.6420, R:R approximately 1:2~

Often when opportunities are THAT good and you feel that you MUST enter, it means it is time to switch off your computer screen and go to bed.

Hypothetically (in a perfect world), I risked a million bucks on this trade. Will I wake up twice as rich? We’ll see in the morning..

Subsequent Update

Failed!

Unfortunately in the hypothetical world my stop loss would have been triggered as the cable went downhill overnight.

Thanks to a robust risk management system I have yet again averted a potential loss and lived to fight another battle.

GBPUSD giving me a 2nd shot @ a trade today.

However UK PPI up in a minute. Hold ma’ horses and wait for the crossovers to enter!

Subsequent Update

After..

This is what it looks like after. Easy 25 pipper that is.

For the record I did not take the trade as the spreads had blown up to 10pips just then due to the release of UK March PPI results. But good to know that EMA 62 still holds.
