My Trading Horror Story

The pick of the day is UDS/CHF and I have a horror story to tell you. As you might remember from my last week’s coverage on the pair, I was in a bearish position and had set my account to take profit at 0.86990. When I saw the market testing near that area on Thursday I checked the market sentiment and decided to bring my target higher up to 0.87 and get the heck out of my position asap, but guess what happened, my broker didn’t accept my order. Immediately after that Mr. Swissy and Ms. USA got wild and started dancing up. They have been on a passionate upward move ever since, breaking inside the prevailing Ichimoku cloud and leaving me, the poor me,  in a losing trade. How I loathe my broker sometimes. While the pair remains inside a downward channel, the RSI is above the neutrality area. The pair seems to be on its way to the previous recent top around the 38% Fibonacci level. If the pair succeeds to break above the Ichimoku cloud, I’m gonna be doomed and would need to get out of the market with a losing trade. My Sop Loss order is set at 0.9092. Currently I remain in the game considering my risk appetite, with my target set at 0.87.
