My thoughts for the next couple days are to try to accumulate a (relatively) massive short USD position ready to take in to NFP on Friday for pure bantz. Not sure on what yet but I think the most likely will be to buy gbp/usd for a run up to 1.3500.

Although it's looking like I may have to deposit another £200 and start again first though:LOL:

Added to DOW last night and got taken out, had to deposit another £200 to start again (n)

I have started to accumulate gbp/usd hoping to still be in it on Friday for NFP

If you're going to play this insane game, brewski dear chap, at least take £200 out when (if) you get to + £200 and start again from there. Then you'll have another grubstake in reserve without needing to dip into the housekeeping tin :)

Interesting day so far. My gbp/usd trade is still going but was 2 points from being taken out earlier and I've had a DAX long get taken out for breakeven. I'm now also short usd/jpy. I haven't been at the computer all day so the execution blotter in the screenshot proves I'm being genuine.

Anyway, gbp/usd out for breakeven... annoying but in reality it was only ever roughly 30 points away from the stop at best so always the likely outcome. I was hoping "Super Thursday" would give it a boost but I'm now short usd/jpy again and I will post a screenshot later
