On the regular 3-hour price chart, the Aussie formed a hammer candle at the low. However, it broke its uptrend line on the way down and I take trend lines seriously. Nonetheless, based on the hammer and the P&F chart support I blogged about below, I bought yesterday at 1.0618. Note, though, that it's at the short-term downtrend line resistance. This could be 4th wave, the remnant of the prior uptrend. Time to take a little off the table in the way of profits.

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.
