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.

Waited 'til 3pm before trading this afternoon, but it was still far more trouble than it's worth - down over 100 on the first 4 yen trades so got really jumpy trying to make it back. The 2 yen crosses were hovering around the signal zone for what seemed like ages until they finally crawled upwards, so that's obviously the sensitive zone for this current incarnation of the system. Either need bigger stops or a slightly earlier entry... or just need to accept it's not worth bothering with in the afternoon.

...or more likely Obama making progress with his financial responsibility bill - the big boys don't like being told they'll have to pay for their mistakes in future!
