20/4/2011 – GBPUSD Long +102 so far…

Just a quick piece on a long trade in GBPUSD which was triggered last night.  See the attached chart.

This was a Growth trade, had been set on Sunday and was triggered yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon taking me long at 1.6435. I had missed an opportunity to take an extra position based on my rules earlier in the week, however these things happen.

Overnight Sterling has strengthened and late this morning my first target was hit at 6537 for +102 pips.

The stop has not been moved as of yet but with an extended holiday period coming up I may well look to tighten up.  I also suspect we’ll see a lot of profit taking from this run over the next few hours.  So let’s see how it plays out.

Will keep you posted. Trade well,

You can read about that trade by clicking here. […]
