Forex factory down???

  1. I need a EU economic calendar asap!!!

    Forex factory isn't loading for some reason... Aieee!!! Market open in one hour! I don't trade until after the volatility arrives after EU open.

    Don't care to walk into a unexpected 25-50 pip spike event on the EUR/USD.

  4. Woohoo! First trade... 10 pips for me off that dip buy...

    Probably should be holding long for hours... But whatever... EU session isn't even open yet. No need to rush trades.

    First resistance tonight 1.2397, second 1.2456. Those areas are key.


    Forex factory might have banned me for using a AD blocker on their website?
     
  5. Odd, that move just wasn't very decisive about holding high. Not buying this dip.

    Waiting a couple cycles... Bad location for a vol spike.

    If it's moving decisively higher there should only be vol spikes at new highs...

  6. ban you for using ad blocker? ...LOL

    woohoo for 10 pips?? .....you must not get out much
     
  7. LoL... I'm new to Forex trading.

    It's something to keep me busy while I wait for the overall market to get back to normal.

    I really want to swing some big shorts on the SPX but that ain't happening for another month or so.
     
  8. Nope nope, not buying... That bad vol spike on the EU open told the story.

    That shouldn't have been there...

    Something is fishy about the euro tonight.
