    What was the reason for 119.20 as the buy target and how far in advance did you pick that target
  3. Buy target (and Sell) was +30 (-30 for sell) pips of quote at time of trade. Using the 30 minute chart going back 50 trading hours.

    I didn't post my chart at entry, I will in the future. I also might start a journal in the "Forex Trading" section with all my charts
