This USDCHF is driving me nutz... came 5 pips to TP and now back 40 pips, I'm holding this position for almost a week now :-)

The markets are non-linear, dynamic systems. Chaos analysis has determined that market prices are highly random with a trend component. The amount of the trend component varies from market to market and from time frame to time frame.

Moody's downgrades Spain. Dollar long! Finally EURJPY starts moving south. Think I'm on the right side of the market! I've entered USDCHF long small position again, last night.

Good luck all,

ivan

Now I'm regreting not entering EURUSD short ... I was deceived by the fundamentals, as I'm never paying attention to them and this time I did. Well, that's life!

For now other trades are going good.... EURJPY short, USDCHF long and GBPCHF long.

Cheers,

ivan

Hey traders!

Wish you a good week and for people from Japan I'm expressing my deepest feelings of compassion.

I've taken GBPUSD long position yday, since it was resting on a longer term trend and also my usual setup on 4h chart, positive MACD and retrace to the 50-100 SMA area.

It's already closed +94 pips but since I haven't posted the trade up front, I wont count it in my weekly statement.

I'm experiencing some lack of energy lately, eventhough I had a good trade, cannot really find anything smart at the moment, that I could extract and put on the diary sheet.

Wish you best regards,

ivan

short EURGBP

It's not quite perfect trade but I've took it.

Some bearish divergence, MACD histogram decreasing and possible retrace to the 50-100 SMA area, with this time bigger risk/reward ratio.

So Short EUR/GBP @ 0.86504, SL 0.87050 (55 pips), TP 0.85550 (95 pips)
