  • Ichimoku/Currency: EURCHF Stopped Out

For our first trade on this currency.
Let’s do a post analysis and LEARN what happened.
In looking at the charts, I made a very STUPID mistake. My entry value was wrong. Entry lines are drawn from the Chikou Support/Resistance line plus a 5 pip buffer (plus any spread for the buying). For some unknown reason, I forgot to add the buffer. Therefore, our entry should be 1.6437, not 1.6442. Therefore, our trade never should have been triggered.
This mistake caused us to lose  and took us from a winning trade to a losing trade. I will need to double check all my entry values from now one in order to make sure this critical error does not occur again.
