Ahead of my time away from the market for the holidays, I was the discussing potential for a Short EURAUD position headed into yearend. Although the trade initially was underwater, it has since rebounded and turned profitable. Accordingly, I've moved up my Stop from 1.2720 (entry) to Target 1 at 1.2585 to lock-in some profit.

The initial Short EURAUD trade parameters were discussed here.

A new year brings about new opportunities; thus it's always good to review proper risk management guidelines to avoid making unnecessary, costly mistakes in the coming trading sessions.
