This long produced anywhere from 75-135 pips depending on profit taking strategies. This was such an overlap of support that once we saw higher lows develop on the 1m chart it was pretty much all that was needed to take the chance, with a 30-40’ish pip risk for 75-150 pip possibility, nice risk vs. reward.
