Trading ECB Press Conference And Making 76% Return In 2 Days

ECB Press Conference is an important news event for EURUSD. Whenever Mario Draghi the President of ECB speaks, EURUSD goes up or down. Since Friday last week, EURUSD had been trending down strongly. In the morning I noticed a bearish H4 candle followed by a bullish candle. Take a look at the following screenshot just below the red arrow.

By looking at these candles I knew EURUSD has found support at 1.11045 level. I wait for the next H4 candle which was bearish and opened a buy trade with at the close of this candle 1.11010 and placed the stop loss at 1.11000. My risk is only 10 pips. Suppose I have $1K in my account. I open a position with 0.1 Lot. My risk is only $10 or 1%. The price shoots up and then comes down as you can see from the above screenshot with the H4 candle closing bullish at 1.11306. This is the time when the ECB Press Conference has just started.
