FX:GBPCAD British Pound/Canadian Dollar
A nice setup on GBPCAD , in which price is stalling at resistance -- i.e. the daily range is getting narrower, volatility is contracting -- which is coinciding with a 50% as well as the 50 . With these signs in place, as well as signs of CAD strength across the board, I'm shorting GBPCAD at 8390. My stop is at 8495, with my target profit at 7990. This means I'm risking 105 to gain 400, which comes out to a reward/risk of about 3.81.
i don't know if i'd take half off -- i try to avoid doing that unless talking half off nets me 1.5X the amount i risked -- but i might if there are reversal signs and the profit is large enough. on this trade, though, i'd probably just move to breakeven at 8200 and leave the whole position on.
