Hi Gavin,

Join the club! I got sliced and diced by GU and EU this morning, only EG trade saved me from a washout. Cant think whats going on apart from the fact that nothing really is going on....

Hope you dont mind this post on your thread, N's thread is a ghost town - best regards,
Simon.

Hi Simon
Yep, same story as yesterday for me. Conditions must just be out of sync with my system settings (or that's what I'm telling myself). Going from the similarities last week, we're probably using some similar parameters, but trading the Yen pairs amplifies my losses big time!
Got bored by lunchtime and thought I'd try something different - set 20 pip targets with some different entry requirements, which worked better but then it got a bit clearer this afternoon anyway.
Better luck tomorrow - Gavin

GMP started this thread This week's chopfest has helped me refine a couple of things, so the "final" evolution has evolved a little more. Was looking forward to seeing how it performed today, but so far this morning everything's been in neutral, so I suppose having no signals is probably a good sign.

GMP started this thread Huge moves in the Yen pairs today, once they got going... why is it that always happens when I don't have the time to trade? On paper, today would be fantastic. The reality would probably be less than perfect given my trailing stop habits but it's a choker to see.

I see it's the US stock markets slip-sliding again, which explains why it's going quite so mental. Probably a spot of hysteria over the N/S Korea situation.

Yen pairs were outstanding because the Yen was outstanding on MXVL

GMP started this thread Tepid morning saved by a great 10 minutes after midday. May be the start of another big down move like yesterday but I'm cashing in before lunch - 3 figure profits is 3 figure profits.
