Check out his trade idea that let him bring home the bacon this week:
AUD/USD, Daily

[B]Long or Short:[/B] Short

[B]Entry Point:[/B] 0.9950

[B]Stop Loss:[/B] 1.0080

[B]Profit Target/s:[/B] 0.9550

[B]Reward-to-risk Ratio:[/B] 3:1

[B]Risk percentage:[/B] 2%

[B]Indicators used:[/B] (None)

[B]Trade Rationale:[/B] Price action shows that the pair is on a downtrend. The pair recently broke below parity, if this doesn’t pull up in the near term it could mean the pair will continue the rally downwards. For this reason the entry point is set 50 points below parity. Read more…

[B]Trade Adjustments:[/B] Since we’re shorting AUD/USD we need to be careful with not letting the trade carry on for to long. If the trade is initiated but doesn’t make progress quickly I’d consider closing the trade because of the high interest that needs to be paid.

Congratulations! Every trader will now freeze in awe at the sound of your name. Okay, maybe not. But don’t be too surprised if someone asks you for an interview or an autograph!

For those who didn’t win, don’t give up! Put your thinking caps on for this brand new week and keep your eyes peeled for 'em sexy setups! Who knows, it may be your name that I’ll proudly be announcing next week!
