Remarks: 30 & 150 SMA not shown on 1H chart as it was a tad bit messy and SMA was thought to be irrelevant as the weakening bears downward channel at the support shows that buyers were stepping in.

Small price discrepancy between the OANDA chart and executing broker CMC. As shown, price have not hit the buy entry level however, it has been triggered by CMC. Maybe the 5.8 spread played a part. Not a big matter though.


At entry, stop loss placed under/above the lowest/highest point of the support or resistance on the higher timeframe. with guide from 150 SMA

Take profit placed before the support or resistance that makes up the range.

At 50% of the range, LT-TL or 150SMA – shift stop to breakeven.
