Would you take the trade today? What would you do differently?: Would be extra cautious going short into such heavy structure (all time historical low). There's no question I'd take this trade for a short once again and lose on it. (The cross did continue 1000 pips lower than entry so it was not exactly a bad trade idea.) I'd consider going long at 1.54 break or 1.577 break. Original stops would have to be extended to 1.60. The sharp pull back makes it a difficult trade overall. I imagine it would be very challenging for me to hold on to this position past 1.56 after entry at 1.50 - 1.53
A perfect example of poor stop placement. Stop should have been 1.60.
