However, I won't be here to see it. I have a long lunch on a Friday, My open positions will no doubt feel the effect though.

I'm thinking that the bottom is about to fall out of the $ so I'm going for a bubble bursting 37k.

That should stir things up a bit.

Nobody else got an idea?

Doh! Sorry FC, forgot that you currently rely on gravity to determine you entries. Still 50 pip trailing stop?

Very surprised that you have not developed a system to determine the result +/- your usual level of accuracy complete with backtesting to Abraham Lincoln's period in office.
