  1. Good afternoon Sean,

    Thanks for the email. I have bought back this morning at 0.8116, i am not really confortable above 8110. I am little disappointed with this trade, i have started by an long position above 0.8100 and i have shorted for play the swings which were never realized (c’est la vie 😉 ) but I am currently learning. I have set up SL at 0.8172. Nobody can stop the EUR/JPY train ???
