5 Jan 2015: Daytrade #2

This was a tight trade. Looking back, I probably shouldn't have taken this as this trade took place during the European session. According to my research, price usually doesn't go anywhere.

But I took this trade because it looked like a fakeout that had just breached resistance (the salmon pink zone), but then fell back. I went short with a very tight stop loss (3 pips) when I saw the lower swing high form. 

I was aiming for a reward of 10R, but closed out at 5R (15.6 pips) when I saw price hesitating. I probably should've aimed for 5R-7R (the next support level) if I knew I was going to exit at the first sign of hesitation.
