Recap: Tuesday’s short was triggered at 1.2770 on the 7:27 support break, but was closed at 1.2783 for a 13 pip loss as a false break. No trades taken yesterday due to the volatility of the US elections – congrats to the President Obama – as we mentioned in yesterday’s comments. Whether the election has negative or positive effect on the pair doesn’t matter to us as we will continue with swing trading as normal.
It’s a been a frustrating start to the month with price being choppy, kicking out false breaks left and right. We’ve kept our losses very small (5-10 pips on average) due to our false break alert systems. Check out our performance on the right hand column to see our results so far and over the past 6 months.
The 4h charts are certainly bearish at this point with a drop of over 400 pips since mid-October when the pair stalled under 1.3150. We expect this drop to continue with a short-term rising support forming under current price action.
