Last week was frustrating so me! I made only 40 pips, although my weekly target is 160 pips.

There's LT support, and strong support IMO down around 1.155. I have a TP order in at 1.1594. My .02.

So far 1.17 support barrier proved to be working and EU is messing around it.

I made a Market order, didn't placed any TP level, I trade small volumes, because I am not yet an experienced trader and I am prudent :) ..

I don't see a reason at this point to exit prior to the 1.60's. Maybe the market will decide something different today or next week but given the available information this seems a good bet to at least test that area. During the session on 5/21 there was evidence that perhaps the 1.71's would hold as support, so someone who was short from above booking profits at that point had a good case for doing so. But since that time 17's have clearly given in to selling pressure. Yesterday seemed to be perhaps a mix of shorts booking profits and offside bulls who were long from 17ish scratching as price bounced.

If anyone is currently still short, I'd like to hear the case for exiting the trade at this point. Likewise I'd be interested in hearing the case for buying in this area. The charts suggest there would be value buying 15.5 to 16 but prior to that...I don't see it.

Do you predict market direction on the basis of economic events and news only or consider some other factors as well?

!.17 was breached and we are reching 1.165

SO we are getting close to 1.16
I expect another struggle around that level and bounce up partially.
