Chart of the Day: Bullish pattern in the AUDJPY

This is potentially a very bullish pattern on the AUDJPY, targeting a move into the high 87’s over the next several weeks. Trades should be entered on strength above the trendline (roughly 82.00 in today’s trading) against a stop somewhere in the 77.00-79.00 area. (Remember, a closer stop is more aggressive.) Initial profits could be taken at a point equal to one times the initial risk on the trade, with further reductions as the trade plays out.

    The chart looks nice, but entering above 82 with SL at 77 and Target 87 would yield reward/risk of 1/1 only. Why not e.g. SL 81.50 with R/R 10/1 and re-try if your stopped out?
    How do you prioritize your trades? There are a lot of set-ups, a few may look worse than others, but may have a R/R of 5/1. Any thoughts?
    Do you always trade on the same time frame or try to have a mix?
