I wouldn’t worry @purtle,
Anyone who knows anything about the currency markets at the moment and who has history in the markets, more so relating to the major EUR, GBP and USD pairs will understand and support that momentum has slowed over the past year, or more, on a day to day ADR basis. The breakouts are less erratic, the catalysts from news is more subdued and the volatility has certainly taken a hammering. Gone are the good old days of >250pip regular daily moves in perhaps GBP.USD and EUR.USD; and moves of >300pips when the NFP dropped on the wires.
All in all this means that it will take longer, generally, to hit a desired level on perhaps a 4H or Daily chart than it would have in say 2010 when momentum was more liquid and regular.
The trading approach I use now I have been using since 2008. I can tell you with statistical certainty as the years have moved on so has the average trade duration to hit such levels which are using TP and SL ratios at the same constant calculation.
Here’s a current example of my open trades - I used to have an average holding time of around 24 hours once open… Now I’ve got trades open for over a week…
