Gentlemen - I remember a long time ago when I used to trade Forex that there were times when the EURO was going CRAZY!

AND I remember one specific time when there was some kind of crazy thing going on in Europe like 10 years ago -- when it almost looked like the Euro was going to fail or something .... and the Forex MARKET Maker algos where going kind of insane -- they made the market look like a heart monitor chart -- oscillation and oscillation and oscillation.

I was wondering if you guys REMEMBERED those times and what date was it specifically.

I wanted to test modern techniques and indicators on those times and see how they would fare.

I think we should all test our techniques and indicators in the insane times FIRST -- if they work there they should work on the normal easier markets.

I am going to try remember the year -- but I remember the EURO just going kind of CRAZY for 3 days straight many years ago.

It was just ultra ultra ERRATIC and CHOPPY price action.

IF any of you guys remember -- Even have the slightest idea -- hit me up.
I am looking over Trading View charts to see and and find it.
