Remarks: The entry orders were not executed at the exact price entered, affecting R:R and risk%. Adjusted so that risk remains at 1%.


If price breaks out favourably, risk halved

If breakout + strong momentum + space to run, extend take profit and use trailing stop.

Trailing Stop

Take Profit

Remarks: Manually closed due to a few reasons –

(1) The structure of GOLD has limited upside potential (LT downward channel on daily)

(2)The corrective structure that this trade was based on has not fully formed

(3) Large bearish candles after the “breakout” and consolidation of what was thought as a bullish triangle

(4) DXY is currently at support (might be continue downtrend or bounce too early to tell)

(5) Either way, 1.4R potential – not worth the risk
