Closing my EURTRY short trade

Since EURTRY failed to break through the 50% Fibonacci retracement at 3.9083 on Friday and RSI is back in neutral territory, I closed my EURTRY short trade at 3.9354 this morning. Having opened the position at 4.0524 on 23 January, this translates into a quick 3.64% spot+carry return. I still like the pair for shorts, but considering the sharp TRY recovery since January I'd rather watch from the sidelines until a new selling opportunity presents itself.
