Recap: Our EU short was triggered at 1.2482 after our rising support was broken and quickly got 70 pips into the profit within the next two hours.The pair then slowly started to creep back upward before triggering our tightened SL for 20 pips profit (we were trying to give it room to hit our 90 pip target).
All and all that was story of yesterday: S/R breaks that stopped before they ever truly got started. We are still bearish on the EU (bullish on USD) at the moment but the pair has been showing some bullish strength recently that we can't ignore.

Trading Idea: We will look to get short on a support break for our primary trade, with targets at 20/20/20/20 for 80 pips. We will keep our SL tight and look to close and get long on a resistance break if one develops.
