Forex Trade- 5.01.06

4:00 pm EST- 2 Trades won

It was quite an interesting Monday as we saw more movement than normal on these days. With the economic reports providing the EUR/USD some juice, we had 2 great trades. The first trade was an Alba breakout which happened at 8:50 am EST. I entered 3 lots long at 2668 with a stop at 2639 and a target at 2686. My target was hit at 9:10 and I closed 2 lots and moved my last lot's stop to the low of that candle. I was stopped out the next candle at 2673. The 2nd trade came after the release of the better than expected numbers for Factory Orders and the ISM report. At 10:40 there was a great Alba signal and I entered 3 lots short at 2623 with a stop at 2669 and a target at 2600. My target was hit at 11:40 and I closed 2 lots and moved my last lot's stop to the high of that candle. I was stopped out at noon at 2612. As far as the long term trend goes, I'm still unsure where this pair will go in the next few weeks but the intra-day movements are still giving us some decent moves. Hopefully the rest of the week will be just as good as today, but of course that usually isn't the case :) Cheers! ~Big Pippin
