USD/ZAR Trading 13-08-2019

 I have been watching this pair since last week, price has been up for sometimes and currently at the monthly resistance. Chart above is on TF H4. Awesome Oscillator, Parabolic SAR shows signs of Retracement. I put a sell order with target profit at the middle of Bollinger Bands.

  However I make a mistake by entering to early at the Asian market Time, USD/ZAR tends to have bigger spread at Asian Market and therefore it is not recommended to trade this pair at Asian market.

Slaughtered by USD CNH

Having a bad day today.. USD CNH goes up and break 7

at this time of writing USD CNH is at 7.083

The reason of USD power up against Chinese Yuan is because on Friday, Mr. Trump announced another tax  increase as much as 10% on Chinese Imports.

 

 

The important lesson is to have a stop loss ! or at least a stop target (I heard rumor that some brokers are stop loss hunter).
