STTS Weekly Summary 26 April 2014

Wild irrational swings caused us a negative week despite getting the direction right in 3 out of our 4 trades:

- A EURUSD Long trade which missed 1st Target by just 1 pip early on. Ensuing volatile price action caused us to exit at Break Even missing out late rally which saw our original targets being reached.
- A Kiwi Dollar Short trade got stopped out for a loss just before downward trajectory resuming.
- A Gold Long which luckily we exited at Break Even just before a sudden 'manipulated stop searching' dump, thus avoiding a loss, only to see our original profit targets reached a few hours later!

 
This happens often in trading. As frustrating as it is, we just need to accept it. Risk management is the Key to minimizing the negative effects of loss making spells.

0 Winner, 2 Loser, 2 Break Even
