Best Trades in March
- USDJPY (Daily Chart) – Reversal Short – 10.03.2015 – After an indecision period, price hitting an old yet significant resistance level – and also after the rejection on the 8th Stochastic divergence and clear high test bar were the perfect signals to take this against the overall trend. Price is now at over +1% risk and we recommend attention as next support level can be seen at 116 but price seems to be hesitant after touching the moving averages.
- GBPNZD (Daily Chart) – Reversal Short – 11.03.2015 – The rejection form the upper level under a clear range from the last few months with price stuck between 2.08 and 1.93. The big yet decisive engulfing bar on the 11th was the reason to take it. Currently at +2,5% profit and now at the lower level we are using the TTM strategy.
