Very nice trade. Had me worried for a while as price because after taking a position the price started rising up and invalidating the pinbar and towards my original SL. As it was NFP, and there still seemed to be a possibility that price would head lower once bulls had pushed the price above the upper trandline, so I added a further 20 pips to my SL as a safety net, which seemed like a good risk to take seeing as I was almost certain to get stopped out during NFP otherwise (which I would have). There wasn't much action as traders were waiting for the US NFP before take positions, but once NFP was over things started to move more naturally again and pushing lower with strength.
How could this have been traded better? I guess the shooting star/pinbar was not fully piercing the upper tramline. A bearish dark cloud signal appeared after confirming the bears were now in control., but it wouldn't have offered me a better R/R. I could have bought in at a higher retrace of the pinbar for better R/R I guess, but a 50% entry wasn't bad.
Probably took profits too early too. There still may be some downside to support at 100.00.
