Good work, I'm all-in on EU as that had the biggest gap for the best margin requirements

...right i got how this works... you dont have to trade all the gap (i just traded the ones over 30, but that you dont need to... just cherry pick the ones you think are high prob'y). but not quiet sure where to place stops... How are you placing stops?

It's up to you... You can either go for something like the full gap or half the gap or something that suits you, obviously with the bigger gaps like these if you are using a stop of the gap then your lot size will be smaller than if you were to use half the gap or something else..

You guys where brave trading EU gap on the weekend of the cypriot bank savings grab!

looking at the charts was spikey all week and still not closed up to 13075. Not done this for about a year now! Do you guys still trade off the spread happy 9pm IG charts or 10pm MT4 charts? (Alpari / SLM etc ).
