Currently Trailing GBP for a sniper short entry, based on the current market structure......
Trade active: Development of trade :

Initial stop (risk) has been move to Break-even + the spread (BE +), allowing a risk free opportunity overnight (during the APAC session). London open on 17.10.2018 DRE / RRE of initial re pattern completed, allowing for an additional entry on the breakout / retest @ 1.3179.

Here is my current view of GBP/USD -

Trade active: GBP/USD - Bearish momentum and further downside continuation !!

We currently have two Short positions on GBP/USD (Cable) from 1.3211 and 1.3179
Our stops have been moved to 0.5%R and Breakeven + the spread.

We are now forecasting that GBP/USD will distribute (consolidate) for a period of around 4-8 hours, creating a continuation pattern such as, a bearish flag or pennant...

We will be looking for the opportunity to add to this trade upon the pattern completion and downside break, if & when it occurs....
Trade active: GBP/USD Short idea

Update -

Initial short position from 1.3211 has now been taken off of the table, due to trailing stop being hit, upon the retracement. We remain short from 1.3179, with stop at around 0.50% R and will actively manage the position today, utilising price action and the market structure.
