Forex Signals - EURUSD Continuation Pattern

 @ibtimes on August 23 2012 2:42 PM

Sorry for the late free signal! We had another glitch and the free EU signal was not sent out. Sorry about that! If you are a free user you could still see the EU signal at the pro dashboard, and of course PRO users received all updates. We are not trading EU today anyway so hopefully it didn't inconvenience you... Today's signal from 8:43 UTC:

Recap: Our long was triggered on the 13:51 UTC resistance break at 1.2483.. unfortunately we closed it out at 1.2471 for a 12 pip loss after our entry candle closed in the negative (false break). While we can't say that we are "happy" that we missed out on the pips (all targets would have been hit for 80 pips), our "false break" trading rule 9 times out of 100 keeps us from losses so we are always happy to abide by it.The pair is consolidating in a continuation pattern at the moment, and since the initial thrust of that pattern is bullish then that means more gains for the bulls.There are no solid S/R break lines to trade at the moment (we are ignoring the support due to the continuation pattern) and will stay flat for the day in EU..
