Intraday Price Action Review 14 August (+12.5 pips or 2.19R)

Trading Overview

Good trading session with some solid price action set-ups.  The market was range bound for the session but was swinging through a range of about 20 pips so offered plenty of potential to scalp with at least 1:1 risk to reward ratio.

I was happy with the trades I took although I could have been a little more patient to begin the session, I ended up missing out on a few pips in the first trade as I manually exited as price approached previous highs instead of waiting to see what happened. I exited the last trade just as news was about to be released in the UK which turned out to be a good decision as price became choppy after the announcement.
