A lady dragged me to one of those casinos a couple years ago, and while I bought some chips I could'nt bring myself to play a single bet, kept thinking what terrible odds these were and that I could find better odds waiting for my own set ups. Was'nt a total waste of time however, she busted out & needed a shoulder to cry on . . . that was the real set up I
was lookin' for ; ) GL & GT.

by this demand and supply we can understand why the usd cant go lower then 1,208 becuse china need euro to pay to germany for new technologe,and why euro is so weak aginst euro because they are selling as Eu the same tech.and thats meaning the range now for the euro it will be so limited 1,208 and 1,265 what u think about it pleas..

Schroeder is worried over strong euro
MUNICH: German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder said yesterday he would be happy if the dollar and euro came more into balance, while adding that only the European Central Bank could affect monetary policy. "I would be happy if the weakness of the dollar and the disproportionate strength of the euro come into a reasonable balance," Schroeder said.
QUESTION: What means "reasonable balance" does he really/reasonable mean parity?

Sometime this week u posted the ranges for eur/aud....I took several layered possies using the ranges as guide. All were closed with adequate profits prior to Fri's NFP data becos of Melbourne Farmica's timely warning plus being quite a newbie, haven't figured out which cross currencies will be greatly affected by good/bad news.
However the eur/aud surged up to one of ur targets once data was out......could have made more but the lessons I learnt here is : It is better to walk away a winner albeit a small one than to end up with losses. Guess I do not have the temperant for really super high risk gambling. :)
Keep your posts coming.....:)

this week, yen moved up from 108.9-112.2 (3.3 yen), saw 3 intermediate 50pip corrections noted at 109.4, 110.4, 111.4,
next monday, we may see consolidation within 111.0-112.2 (200day ma) driven by likely unwinding of eur/jpy to 137.0...

To Wellington am, DUBLIN CK and anyone else nursing badly burnt fingers:
"When you lose, don't lose the lesson".
Write down what you have done wrong (no stop loss, over-exposure, whatever). Put it on the wall. Give yourself seven snappy upper-cuts when you do the same thing again. Alternatively, don't do the same thing again.
When you get back on the FX horse, you want to do so with a clear head (but a smarter one). Don't get back in with the idea that you have to make X amount of pesos to break even as the dominant theme. If you do so, you will be at a distinct disadvantage from the start. Keep it at the back of your mind only.
Hope this helps.

shanghai bc 03:51 GMT - Agree with your statement "all nations for themselves" but seems only 2 have any real clout with the market ...
1) Mr G , when he speaks , market listens
2) BOJ due to unheard of USD buying
The rest are useless and it is thier countries and currencies that will pay the price in the future ... IMHO

From position trader's perspective,Dollar corrected its hefty rise of last week and two weeks before that on bad job numbers on Fri. which is as normal as sunrise and sunset..BOJ folks 10 yard-a-session-trade is the largest one in one session this year although I have seen them throwing around some 15-20 yard a session before..Whether BOJ helped Eur/Usd's rise via Eur/Jpy or hindered Eur/usd rise via Usd/Jpy is not that clear..The question is what is the next likely scenario next week..Most non-Dollar pairs stopped just below the daily neckline which broke last week, which is normal too..Given its liquidity game,Usd/Chf is likely to bounce in a few days towards the previous high of 1.30 level..How the market behaves from there will determine the tone of the market for the coming few weeks..The rumour of DNT 1.2050-1.2650 is at best a rumour but at least it reflects the market sentiment towards certain range in coming days..On Usd/Jpy front,it is still BoJ cannons against Yen buyers and BoJ has been playing it at masterly level..They are likely to get 110-115 range they wish for in coming weeks too..Fwiw..

salutory lessons. I got blown away last week and my trading capital's gone. Took a long euro as per my strategist's recs. and didn't bother with a stop. Could have traded my way out, but ran out of room.
i'll be back in a few months. meanwhile, time to play the demo account, and keep learning. to anyone new to short term trading, my advice would be this:
1. Ensure you have enough margin (don't take too bigger positions)
2. Use a stop if you're close to your margin
3. If not using a stop, don't take your eye off the market, until your out of there.
Simple rules, but so easily forgotten. Ah well, back to work for a few months. Keep the faith, GL and GT everyone.

Thoughts from a relatively new fx participant ( i cannot yet call myself a trader)
beginers should never trade a full margin account you will get blown out very quickly, trade a demo account or at least a mini and do not fund it with a lot of dosh (money) this way when you lose you can stand back, take a breather figure out what the censored you did wrong (easy task) learn from your mistakes and vow never to do them again and then refund your account with some more dosh.
Treat this account as education, learn as much as you can and never take a trade based on someones posting without figuring out the reasons why they are making the trade, everbody has a different reason for a trade and you will never learn by just blindly following postings.
I wish I had more tips and knowledge to pass on but I am learning myself, oh bye the way the data releases that occurred today and this past week are pure gambling and should be treated as such, they are fun to trade censored of a rush especially if you get it right as I did both times this week, only to to rush in and short what I thought was the top... got my arse kicked both times i guess i need to follow my own comments about not making the same mistake twice!!!!! still came out ahead but still better than going to the casino of which we have 3 here, four if you count the one over the river into Canada.
Great forum here, excellent postings and thank you for taking the time to share some of your hard earned knowledge with the rest of us who sometimes are clueless about fx.

Gold Coast ... $ is (strong ???) because auf ??? (BOJ).
Where is support after 113 (a small step) will be reached?
Imho thereafter GBP, AUD, NZD, EUR will again long ...
Fundamentals of $ are much worse than those of AUD.
After these bad employment-news I would never short AUD although I appreciate your AUD-knowledge very much ... gl, gt
