My first comment is well done to Kevin as he is pretty new to this system and he’s doing great so far!

1) Here is how I would handle this as it is over a weekend, I would close the trade and re-enter at a better price if possible, unless Kevin is based in the UK and can use a spread betting broker with a guaranteed stop.

The reason is that there can be a gap over the weekend and it may not be in his favour, also the trade has already moved a long way and is due for a pull back as you can see by the last candle which is a long candle.

Generally price opens at around the same point as it closed on Friday but this protects your account in case of weekend gapping.

2) I would look at the context of the trade which is at the end of a run and adjust my expectations accordingly, as you can see price had already moved a long way down and had bumped up against some previous support so I would be minded to start moving my stop loss and be willing to exit at a 1-7 or 1-8 ROI.

But in any case well done to you Kevin!
