Good (early) morning to you..

So I took the EUR/USD long at 1.3195(6). The initial stop was around 1.3140. I set the audible alerts on this market, turned the volume on the computer way up (my wife is not really a fan of this strategy), and went to sleep. I was woken up a little bit ago, as the market started to rocket higher. I have thus set an order to shred off over 80% of the postion, if EUR/USD falls back down to 1.3219. If that happens, then I will put in an order to sell off the remainder of the position just over my entrance. That way I'm a) guaranteed my profits from the trade and b) have a little wiggle room if the market decides to move higher. But I will 'groom' these stops higher as time goes on. Another point I have no idea why yesterday I said I was long Sugar from 12.56 to 12.60. It was 23.56 to 23.60. Hope that makes more sense.

Until next time, stay safe trade well, and remember that loving other people doesn't cost a dime.
