Trapped Traders®: #NFP, #USDCAD, #NZDUSD

Many years ago, there was a book called “The Rat Trap” written by a Swedish writer Selma Lagerlof. It’s an interesting story that reads like a fairy tale.

The rat trap seller was a homeless tramp, who stayed the night as a guest in the cottage of a farmer. The lonely farmer entertained his guest like a trusted friend, but the next morning, the peddler came back, smashed the window and stole the farmer’s money.

This story reminds me of a common problem we face as traders.

Why it is that when you take a breakout trade, price always seems to reverse against our positions? We either get stopped out or even worse, lose lots of money.

It’s almost like getting caught in a rat trap.
