GBP/CHF: late trade report

I have closed a short in GBPCHF yesterday with a nice profit. There was a price data outage during the day therefore a large gap shows on the chart where there was actual trading.
The entry this time was how it is supposed to be, a pullback perfectly touching the breakout point. The limit order entry has provided a fairly close initial stop. The position went into a nice profit than pulled back again to erase most of the unrealized gain. I moved the stop level to break even and the position has managed to survive the night. Next morning the price failed to hit a new low and then I decided to take profit and was also considering the fact that the data outage left me in the dark for an hour or so. Looking at the price action after that it was the right decision to make.
