S1S – Short AUDUSD Dec11 – short at 9107


Selling weakness/buying neutrality (not optimal strength vs weakness) – however there has been a nice slow pullback of around 150-160 pips, price rejected a previous high and did not get to the overhead supply zone (in blue).  Note the Australian employment report will be released overnight.

Notice my detailed planning of how to manage the trade – when to take money off the table, when to move the stops.  This comes on the back of the experience from all the JBT trades – although the JBT are on the lower 15M timeframe, the principles are the same.
