TRADE

Date: 30-Sep-2014

Entry: Sell Market 1.6217

Reason for Trade/Setup: 

Tenkan-sen had crossed over kijun-sen, and below the kumo cloud. However, kijun-sen was in the cloud, and chikou span went into the kumo barely after it crossed below. Price action was below and the forward cloud was bearish. Took a position to short when price action near the tenkan-sen.

Initial Target: 1.5528
