Cable continued its climb today with solid movement. Last nights trading gives me an opportunity to discuss another key factor in our strategy. When we got up this morning we had already closed our smaller trade for 40 pips and had a mild pullback, we closed our second bigger trade at 1.7720 for only 35 pips at 8:00AM.
Had we stayed in our trade we would have closed it for 85 Pips @ 1.7770. This looks like we lost out on 50 pips, but you can’t lose what you never had. We have strict rules about certain news, and those rules told us we had to close our trades before the release of the PPI and housing starts at 8:30 AM.
The reason we have this rule is simple, in our years of trading experience we have seen 35 pip positive trade become a 40 negative stop loss in mere minutes. After witnessing this again and again, we decided it was much better to take the sure 35 pips off the table and bank them, and not risk them with the unpredictable move of a significant piece of.
Last night netted us 70 pips, not too bad, and with Cable heading into a more trending market, we are poised to make more.
Tonight we are trading around 1.7810. We are again looking for a buy. There is some support around the big number 1.7800, and even more around 1.7870. The first resistance is going to be around 1.7900. All indicators appear to be signaling that cable will continue up and test the resistance at 1.7909.
