I always keep a range of trades. Longer term, and intraday trades here. Can look pretty messy but yea... lots of fun. I dont know if it will hit 1.58 but I feel it should retest 1.5874

You mean it bottomed at 1.6010 :) too bad i was not around to book profits earlier on some shorts meh life goes on. Hmmm chart looks like there may be some movements up but I dont expect it to be too much before it heads south again. Again I am looking at bigger TF here...
