The remainder of my short from .9030 profit stopped at .8942 for +88 pips.
The pair dropped to .8841, the 100 daily SMA, where it formed a hammer on the three-hour chart. It has since rallied to .8975 (near the 10 SMA of .8977) and just above the 200 SMA of .8946 where it began to falter a bit. I shorted this morning at .8958. The slight dip below the .382 retracement of .8317 to .9222 and the 200 daily SMA indicates weakness. I think it's possible the pair will drop to .8740/70, the short-term trend line from early June, fib confluence, and near the .8738 July 21 low.
Support is at .8841, .8770 (.382 retracement level of the move up to .9222), and .8738. A break below would be significant. Resistance is at .8977, .8991, .9027, and .9080.

My purpose in writing this blog is to show you how one trader, me, makes trading decisions and survives while trading Forex. One of the biggest problems I had when I first started trading was trying to apply the “rules” to actual trades. Another was the psychology—limiting losses and letting profits run. If you study my blog, you’ll see how I deal with both those issues. So my writings are not trade recommendations but rather educational in purpose. You have to decide on your own approach to trading. Remember that trading is risky.
