Default eur/dollar down 202 pips

I like buying eur/dol at 1.3978....I'm going to create a hedge and sell at 1.3596.

I'm going to let the market decide which way it wants to go...currently we are at about 1.3739.

I'm going to place the trade on a micro trade so our stop is about $40...which would be the difference if we get filled on both

Exited the eur/dol at 13568...28 pip profit. Made a whopping $2.80 profit on this trade since it's a micro lot.

I'm just practicing on the micro. I'm getting ready to buy this market. I will renter my trade shortly.

I'm going to re enter this trade. I like the same exact trade as last but I'm going to do an if then order. Currently we are at 1.3612. I want to buy at 1.3900 and place a short order at 1.3596. If I get hit at 1.3900 then an order will go in to sell at 1.3596.

switching this order I want to buy at 1.380 and place my stop at 1.350 for two micro lots. It will be a if then order if we hit 1.380 then our stop will go in at 1.350.

took my actual stop out of 1.350 and replaced it with a new sell order of 1.3580.

I got filled at 1.380 and I'm now long but I also have a pending new order to go short at 1.3580. This will act as my stop

Got hit at 1.3580 now I'm both long and short this position. The difference between the two is my stop.

I'm going to wait to decide which position to take. If the market rallies up a bit I'm going to dump my short position. I feel the market will rally

This trade went bad I just barely got filled on the long position of 1.380 and now I'm down 470 pips. I also got filled on my short position at 1.3580 and I'm up 250 pips.

The difference between the two is 220 pips I had two micro positions so I'm down $44.

What I just did was exited my long position and took the loss on the 470 pips which was $94. I'm keeping my short position which I'm profiting on of 250 pips but I'm placing a stop loss at 1.3470. The market is currently 1.333.

I think the market will continue to sell off. If I get stopped out on my short position I will be down a total of 360 pips or $72 because we have two positions.
