EURUSD: Looking for Shorts at this decision point

FX:EURUSD   Euro / U.S. Dollar
If you saw my post yesterday then you know that I’ve been waiting for a potential short on this pair. (Here’s the video link explaining the trade https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qxi7KNW-38M) My initial killzone was pretty large and after a brief test of the bottom levels of it, price has rallied back to the top providing me with the opportunity that I was waiting for.

The reason I didn’t enter the trade yesterday was strictly due to the fact that I wouldn’t get the risk reward that I wanted. Risk reward will still be difficult at this level because of how close the structure levels are but if I’m able to get the entry that I want, my stops may be short enough to make it work.

The London session extension gave us another equal measured move back into structure looking left and some Fibonacci extensions. The bulls gave a nice test of the highs and were beaten back after the first attempt to break through. As I type I’m watching this on the 15 minute chart waiting for a reason to enter, all depending on how this current candle completes. For targets I’ll be looking for a move back down into our previous new structure highs, and certainly looking to aggressively manage this one during my live trading room hours. We’ll see how this one pans out

Indeed it was, barely put up a fight
Akil, if "you look to your left".... ;) It did put up a fight on a higher resistance level. One that, in my opinion, was much more likely to be tested. A really strong one.
Or what do you say?

Yes, the higher level did put up a fight. But I think the trader was talking about the initial level that I mentioned in the post, where give gave once strong hold but blew past on the second attempt
Yeah, I know. I´m just messing with you. =)

Hello Akil...
I have a question.. I tried to take the position as the Chart I attached (GBPUSD). I found there was a double top and fibonaci retracement has arrived at 61.8
However, I got Stop at a few candles later.
my question are:
was it a bad trade?
was my profit target too far?
was my stoploss too close?
