rangebound till US session -imho the upward push has lost momentum - eur/usd has stopped right at daily pivot.
SAR both positions:
short EUR/USD 1.3960 (loss -11) / SL 1.3980
short GBP/USD 1.6127 (loss -12) / SL 1.6155

Yup. As always gbp game is an excellent choice. 4-Hr chart - the way the candles have lined up shows you bull bricks protecting 1.6100. However, this should be at 1.6200 already by now. Look at how it is retreating listlessly.

hi Mailman!
gbpusd-good choice of a game friend...just slipped sub bottom of a rising channel...depending on usGDP data,i would wait for daily close below 1,6100 for confirmation and sell like crazy.taget=1,5730
risk lovers coud use us gdp volatility to enter well above 1,61

Richland QC Mailman  12:03:35 GMT - 01/29/2010  
HI AS. Nice to see you mate. Just like old times.

What is your current take on our dear cable? thanks

you have been showing the excellent trading records in the past. One or two days whipsaws are something we all have to cope with sometimes.

Keep your chin up
I am 100% sure you will go back to be ' a money machine ' again ! :)
good luck

Belgrade AS  11:27:19 GMT - 01/29/2010  
sofia,don't be harsh on yourself.shorting eurusd was not much of a mistake...ok,it's way oversold on daily but it begged for a sell-off around 80's...i guess european pears are not helping much regarding Greek debt situation
29 Jan 12:24:26 GREEK FINMIN: With country's current problems it would be disastrous to be outside of the Euro.
29 Jan 12:14:34 EU ALMUNIA: Bailout for Greece is not possible and does not exist.(news from last 10 minutes!)
it's us GDP's turn to go usd positive now....that's what i think,anyway

Richland QC Mailman  11:21:36 GMT - 01/29/2010  
Hi sofia kaprikorn. Thanks for your email and inputs re: forex broker.

Chart formation of euro is kinda confusing since yesterday. Whichever currency is giving you consistent gains, stick with it. I believe every currency has its inherent characteristics. There are specific seasons of the market where it is simple to spot trading edges like that of usd/cad, usd/yen, and gbp/usd yesterday until today.

Even if you got whipsawed, for as long as you are just risking 2-3% of your equity at the most, then you could still be at peace. I know we have a lot of savvy and veteran traders here. But it will be helpful if you can find a partner, a trading soulmate, or a coach in trading who can act sometimes as your conscience. You work as a team with him/her. You will see how things will be different.

Happy trades!

tnx JP - that's a valuable advice I'd pay heed to.

Mtl JP  10:02:51 GMT - 01/29/2010  
similar to your earlier Q about inflation.. in view of the number of choices one could play vs one's relative ressource availibility to take them on - unless of course one is well funded, and who isn't, eh? - trading tactic boils down to one of two:
- madly throw around many grenades OR
- patiently wait for specific, well thought out and prepared for opportunity to thrust a rapier to the heart and twist
to come out a winner.

because of the leverage employed in FX, those who are relatively to under-funded have utmost respect for risk. I know at least one player who limits his plays to only one or two pairs patiently waiting for that market's weak moment (such as and for example "the more times tested weaker res or sup becomes")

sofia kaprikorn  08:55:05 GMT - 01/29/2010  
indeed - I read some interesting articles on similarities b/ween Texas Hold'em & Trading - many legends like Jim Simmons, Jeff Yass and David Einhorn say that 90% of time you gotta fold till the right moment comes..

think that is one comes with experience if it's not a gift by birth.

Kaunas DP  08:49:38 GMT - 01/29/2010  
you are right... the only advantage we have against the market is the time we stay out of the market.. GT

added last 1/3 at 1.3966 / avg 1.3970.

I just lost my nerve as my overnight trade ideas proved right with the designated stops intact but I closed them and then I got stopped this morning on an overextended target move. feel I'm totally out of sync with market and maybe better walk away for some time.
