8/31 Analysis: Big Moves Today
Prior to the NY session open, the market was completely flat with all currencies moving sideways.

The reason I’m showing an “Entry Zone” on the chart is because I want you to see how this would work in real time as you’re watching the indicator.
The first red line indicates the initial moment we saw the momentum on the indicator. The second red line represents when it became painfully obvious.
So I always like to use the worst case scenario and assume the entry was later.
From that point, price pulled back 10 pips so you would not have been stopped out with a stop loss of 20 pips. Then, from there it went up over 100 pips.
