Im bearish on the USD JPY at the moment aiming for at least 116 if not lower

USD/JPY is trading in narrow range around 117 to 118.85 for the past five trading sessions, trend is bullish as long as 117 holds.. . On the upside 118.85 is acting as major resistance any break above will take the pair to 119.95/120.75 in short term.. The pair's minor support is around 117.25 and break below will target 116.80/116.. . Indicators (4 Hour chart). CCI (50) - Buy. CCI (14) - Buy. Ichimoku- Buy. . Recommendation: Buy USD/JPY around 118, SL 117.20, Target 118.85/119.90.

All losing trades must be closed with immediate effect and never hold on to a losing trade .

Hi Blue joff! I see that you give this advice all the time. It's good but what should mean "a loosing trade" When do you personally consider an trade to be a loosing one? I had some trades that got me on minus 20 or 30 pips or more then the pair retracted and I was able to close break even. or even full TP. Thanks!
