EURUSD=X1.0570+0.0019

My short EURUSD entry order at 1.2978 has been triggered and I will carry the trade into today's FOMC rate decision, seeing the possibility that Ben Bernanke and company will disappoint dovish expectations. I am initially targeting 1.2830, with a stop-loss set to trigger on a daily close above 1.3126.
