Hopping into Trades Going with the Trend – Examples (3/3 ITM)

Aug. 15, 2014

August 14, 2014 The EUR/USD was uninspiring to start the day so I looked over at my back-up pair, the GBP/JPY, to see if the action was a bit more appealing. No pivot points were in play due to the large trading range from yesterday, but there was a downtrend in effect. This makes things […]

August 6, 2014 One of the nice things about pivot points that are spaced far apart is that the market will tend to be sensitive to them to a greater degree. When there is no other obvious immediate intraday level for price to hang on, it makes reaching a pivot point a rather notable event, […]
