I have been meaning to update the thread but have too much going on which includes trading and very little time for forums. Much of my time is spent keeping my skills relevant in my industry. I will be happy to see the back of working for a boss and turn to my own interests. One thing i want to do is program my trading methodology into a real time processing engine that trades for me. Ray Dalio did it and he is a macro trader and it outperforms them now. I know how to work the tech that can do this but don't have the time to do it.
good to hear it not too bad thanks

Its rare for someone to give their fundamental analysis like you do so I hope you get back into it one day

FXX started this thread So has anyone been following the [ libor \ funds rate] spread?

Something massive is stirring in a fragile debt pile. You want to see how big that pile is?

I don't. What is going on with the spread?

Did you trade the BOE event last night? I did and got caught on the wrong side initially. Reversed position and came out fine.

FXX started this thread sorry i had a typo, i meant OIS and not funds rate versus Libor. The spread has been widening and is at levels last seen when we had the EU banking crisis in 2011. With costs for banks borrowing increasing and other factors at play like the governments debt (21 Trillion). It is hard to visualize that number so here is a nice visual of how much money it is stacked in 100 dollar bills

http://demonocracy.info/infographics...t/us_debt.html

To add fuel to the fire, I read an article on FT about banks in the USA suffering 20% loss on credit card losses. The credit card debt is 1 trillion dollars so 20% is a sizeable chunk. I read another article that over due payments have hit about 11.9 billion dollars.

Then the elephant in the room with raising rates and the bond market with what is widely believed to be in a bubble along with equities. Something is cooking in the kitchen and when the lights go out, the governments wont be in a position to repeat 2008.

Good stuff!
Hopefully it will coincide with me getting back into trading

Busy, busy, busy at the moment but the break away was exactly what I needed.

How you're well mate

FXX started this thread right to kick off the tread again I have a trade i just closed on GBPUSD (short) for 35 pips. There was some fake news that came out about UK staying in the customs union beyond Brexit and this caused a quick reaction in the pair to the upside. Shortly afterwards it was make clear that this was a rumor without any evidence and the government made a statement that basically confirmed it was nonsense. Sold close to the highs of the reaction and given that there will be more Brexit news out today there is a cloud of uncertainty in the air making this a very well timed trade working the news.


Personally i think it was started by the snowflake remoaners who will never give up their eu d...ck sucking love.

Stay tuned for some analysis - not sure when but it's coming. This Journal is going to be shifted from a trade journal to an information gateway to all you TA based traders out there to hopefully see that it isn't bad and actually very lucrative. The content will be analysis and will outline trades i have or planning to take. I will also go into details of the process i follow so as to provide some grounding for anyone wishing to add fundamental analysis to their toolbox. While i do use paid services i will endeavor to provide alternatives both cheaper and free.

note that i am not a full-time trader yet so work this all around my job which i think will be applicable to many of you. The journey to full-time is underway and i can't wait to cast up my work suits for good and replace them with a comfy home office and a better quality of life.


good day to all

Looking forward to it.... fundamental analysis is an area I need to improve in. Apart from a decent news feed and watching how markets react, could you recommend a decent primer on the subject?

Kind regards.
