EURUSD: Profits Booked on Short Position
Strategy: Pending Short
Realized Profit / Loss: +389 pips
We initially sold EURUSD at 1.3121 and added to the position at 1.3026 (for an average entry at 1.3073). The pair sold off after forming a bearish Harami candlestick pattern and subsequently revised the stop-loss and target downward to lock in some gains. Prices have now invalidated a bearish Evening Star candlestick pattern identified earlier and triggered our stop-loss with a daily close above 1.2674. We will book profits on the position here and move to the sidelines until another selling opportunity presents itself.
