Some manual trading down the euro
While the breakout bot has been holding a ~1.33 EUR/USD short for almost a month now, I decided to get in on the action with a little manual trading of my own. I was inspired by my visit to Hungary and being on the ground in Europe again, I felt the urge to get in on the action. My trading coincided with the large downtrend starting right after the new year and ending only a few days ago. Oanda's new trailing stop feature came in very handy, and I must admit it was nice to trade from the UTC+1 timezone. The euro is now counter rallying and we'll see if indeed this short play is over and we'll tread water again, or if the 1.2X's are here to stay this year for the euro. Time will tell.
