    50 pips. Took profit even through i do think there's more to come because some offers not been triggered but could get taken off.

    I'm happy and 50 is a nice profit

    Out

    And there it is - price came down to the heavy offers to fill them and now we are in the cluster of heavy offers what are fighting the big option. It was a huge move but I did have confidence if no news would of knocked my trade out. I came out to early -looking back I should of put a trailing stop on it but the profit was to much to not take and I was happy no matter where the price when. Remembers the layer of offers were around the 30 level all the way down to the round number.
    We could see a drive through if the bids are strong enough and that would trigger the stops which is another new trade to take.

    Just speaking to a pro trader friend of mine and looking at the charts and news flows, I am looking for USD/JPY weakness over the next 2 days. Not taken a trade yet but I could do in the near future just watching and waiting for certain things to happen but I am looking for a move down

    Does anybody read these posts?
    anybody trades?
    anybody interested?
    anyone watches the financial markets?
    anyone trades commodities?
    Am I wasting my time posting?
    I see a lot of readers but no one posts, why?

    That's still making some waves. Blows my mind how easily people are able to hijack virtual currency. Seems to have little to no effect on precious metals, which is foreign to me.

    I read but have been swamped. Have enjoyed starting to get familiar with the trading of foreign currency.

    I have to change the way I trade over the last year or so because of my work schedule, its hard because I like to be hands on infront of my screen but with work and other stuff going on I do find it hard to trade intra day

    I mentioned yesterday before I took my trade that I was told that there are some heavy offers being placed and they are mounting within a 30 pip range down to the round number, obviously some of these are protection of the big option whats rolling off today but they are also orders which look to be heavy, so I knew price drive close to these that's why I took the trade. I close out at 50 pip profit but ive posted a chart to show you the two lines where the offers will be - chart is down to a 15min chart so you can see closer what happens, with every heavy decent offer there is a reaction in price, you can make a trade plan out of these if you like but as you can see the first hit of the offers at 30 level were big enough to have a decent reaction, this was also helped by some news but its very interesting to see this because now those offers at the 30 level have gone, ive not been told of any new ones being places so this opens it up to the next layer of offers all the way down to the round number. News again can make this go out of the window and if we can get a rush at the offers we could see some decent stops hit which will have a huge impact on the price but only for a short period of time yet again another chance of a trade. Many ways to trade this...

    Been busy with FX but today looks like some of my levels are coming into line with my trading style. I need more weakness because long term I see strength erupting from some of my currencies but without doubt a lot of roller coasting inbetween time.

    Ive been monitoring my screens for hours, waiting for new flow and also my friend to ring me to see if anything major is in the pip line today.

    Have fun if anyone is trading

    There's some big moves today like I mentioned may come last week, well its arriving now and certain levels are showing up on two majors. We do have a lot of uncertainty in the markets due the UK and Brexit and also some inflation remarks from one of the CB's on the euro but this in my eyes is temporary.

    I'm very close now just waiting for my friend to text me back or send me an email on some certain things but some big levels coming into play to give liquidity to the big players to make longer term moves. Big money to be made here very soon

    wanted you to see the daily chart today on the euro usd - can you see the long standing support and see how its coming into the over sold territory - nice chart especially on the daily time frame


    windows print screen

    the below chart is yet again the daily chart showing the gbp usd, can you see again testing support on the longer time frame and also pushing past for a stop run.



    These charts are very interesting to the chartist and also the longer term trader coming into these levels, with the fundamentals pushing the price we could see further downside but also a slight bounce.

    Waiting for the crude report this afternoon, it will probably still go higher till the report release time.

    I might open a small short at that time, or before if see any movements, but it may very well still go above $73-74 till friday so be careful. Oil is a beast completely dominated by hedge funds.
