Trading Idea: Given the recent bullish strength (on the back of Germany's new found willingness to once again fund debt) we are adding a long as our primary setup: we will look to get long on a resistance break with targets at 20/20/20/25 for 85 pips profit. We will also look to short a support break, moving our SL early and often to minimize the false breakout risk.
