EDIT: Why I did not sell that I have no idea. The burst up there had me fooled.

What a reversal that was. I got filled long up around 93.10 and then saw the volume, was lucky just to not have my stop hit

So, do I hold this or not? What is going through my head; "If I hold, it will take out my stop. If I close, it will fall all night." Amazing the level of self questioning that goes on the longer I hold a trade.

The reversal was very decisive, but all price has done is come nack to possibly test the low of the bracket area.

Not just the level of "questioning". That word is weak. Self-doubt.

We learn that a bird in the hand is better... But in trading that concept falls short.

The Euro is range bound, but in a down wave, and that is in my view what the market is all about today...

Hold or close, hold or close... Maybe a smiley will help me decide?
