FXX started this thread Today's trade list includes EURZAR off the back of continued Euro stupidity and SnP downgrading ZAR deeper into junk status (buying a pullback for another test of 17). No other major news today. Will be spending the day catching up on central bank research and preparing for data releases later this week. Also on the cards is news on progress of brexit which if deterioration occurs will be a seller of GBPUSD and also on the cards is news on US tax reforms.

Switching watch list to USDZAR - some soft Italian data has been released and Euro weaker this morning.

How long do you reckon it would take someone to understand fundamentals to the level you do?
Generally speaking...

FXX started this thread Sorry haven't updated in a while. Got out of the USDZAR trade at break even (it just wasn't going anywhere and was my last swing trade)

Last week i took 3 news trades trades (the strategy i will focus on going forward)

GBPUSD - off of news on brexit trade talks moving forward (25 pips profit)
NZDUSD - Worst business confidence in years (20 pips profit)
USDCAD - brilliant employment and gdp data (65 pips)

Today nothing on schedule but will be listening for brexit news
