GBPUSD Swing Trade That Made 2,256 Pips In 10 Days

Our swing trades can continue from 5-15 days and even more as long as the trend continues. Our swing trading strategy comprises of catching the big moves on D1 and H4 timeframes. On these timeframes, the impact of news is low. Of course a breaking news does have the potential of moving the market but we should take it as the risks of trading. The most important thing is if we manage our risk well, the chances of our suffering a catastrophic loss will be minimal. A swing trade all starts suddenly when you find an almost perfect setup. Let’s analyze a recent swing trade. Take a look at the chart below.

You can see a very clear bullish divergence pattern on H4 timeframe. This is a clear indication that the market has reached the turning point. We enter into a trade at the close of the H4 candle at the orange horizontal line. Our entry is 1.45943 and the stop loss is 1.45600. The stop loss is just 5 pips below the low of the H4 candle. Now we close the computer and go away. Either the stop loss gets hit or it doesn’t. The idea is the catch a big move. Big moves don’t develop in one day. So don’t worry too much. Enjoy life and let the trade develop. Our risk is only 34 pips. We should be prepared for this loss.
