The Risk:

As traders, it is your job to mitigate the risk and only trade structures that provide high probability and great reward to risk ratios.

If you are not comfortable with defined exit levels, experiment with Moving Averages to help set solid exit rules to protect your capital.

IF: Price breaks above 77.080 level and violates 200 EMA – this would suggest the structure is not in our favour and would be wise to reduce exposure or close the trade until a solid signal gives us reasons to re-enter.

Reward / Reward Targets:

Optimal Entry 76.920 – Target 1 76.440 = 5x Reward to Risk

Optimal Entry 76.920 – Target 2 76.110= 3x Reward to Risk

Supporting Entry 76.785 – Target 1 76.440 = 1x Reward to Risk

Supporting Entry 76.785 – Target 2 76.110 = 2x Reward to Risk
