  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

Volume has really thinned out in anticipation of the ECB press conference, US GDP and Employment data.

I took one trade around 13:30, a short @1.35135 in an attempt to ride the mini bear trend downwards. Tight 6pip SL just above previous LH. Didn't hope for much. Stopped out for 6.5pip loss.

Stayed out the rest of the day. I had some idea that the next 24-48 hours were serious; didn't think it would be *this* serious.

Really excited to see what happens. I will stay on the sidelines and watch as the pros duke it out. Maybe sim trade a little so I stay connected.

I just followed over from your old thread, good choice on spot fx, I suggested micro currency futures but didn't think about spot FX. I will be following your thread, I trade the 6E/E7/M6E EURUSD future contracts so I like to see forex action as well for the EURUSD.

what is wrong with this trade?

Please register on to view futures trading content such as post attachment(s), image(s), and screenshot(s).

The big bear candles (18:49 and 18:59 gmt on May 14th 2014) gave me the impression that the bears are in charge. The upward moves are much weaker. I went short at around 137085.

Ususally the big candles during a consolidations tell me what the next move will be. This time they gave me the wrong message.

I am trying to analyse and see any early signs that the market would go up. The only bull sign I see is the strong up move from the support (1.37031) at 18:23. But I thought it was over.

Can you comment please?
