Hi, presuming you were hoping for a reversal at the prior high around 8019 (blue line) so your sell at 8010 then your idea was invalidated when the blue candle closed above 8019 (red cross), that was your exit for a small loss.

The bounce up off the daily pivot (red arrow) was bullish confirmation so if you are still in it's a case of scrambling out for as little damage as possible, might see a retest of the pivot but if it heads for R1 you just need to get out.

Here's the best advice you can get.

Don't bet money you can't afford to lose.

At a bare minimum 76% of retail punters lose.  Over time, it's closer to 95 - 99% and the number that outperform a simple buy and hold strategy is probably less than 99.9%.

And the post above shows the 'benefit of hindsight' which is totally useless when you're actually trading.

Best of luck.

the retard has spoken aah, the OP was asking for advice on a trade they were actually already in moron.

if they were playing a reversal then that was the correct stop loss level for their short.

how's trading going for you btw? still losing a grand a month? oh wait, you've had to go back onto demo again right err, yeah,  but keep the advice coming.

Cheers I know all that stuff I just took a loss and now I've made more than I've lost on other pairs. What's your thoughts on gbp/usd I've been seeing 1.350 mentioned a lot on various sites for this week?
