EURUSD 1HR Channel 22SEP08

After the exceptional volatility of the past week, a large downward channel is starting to develop.  I have no predictions if it will hold, or what volatility will be over the next few days due to the ongoing U.S. financial market bailout congressional hearings.  I am shorting at the top of the most recent touch of the channel down to the mid level fibble with a target of 1.4625.  My Stop loss is 1.4744.  I suspect that either I will be stopped out above the channel due to some whip saw candles during the European openings, or the opposite, I will get filled at my target profit.  If I am awake and the trade is moving in my directions and closes below the middle fibble, I would lock in profit and extend down to 1.4577.  I have a downward bias for this pair for the medium term, but am not willing to give up profits in the short term due to high volatility.
