  1. i'm getting short usd

    so that makes me

    long aud.usd
    long. eur.usd
    long.gbp.usd
    short usd.cad

    1:1:1:1

    and I'm going to keep that ratio to add or lighten up

    usd.jpy is a different deal, don't want to get involved
     
  2. i guess the world has decided usd is just going to sit here until fomc starts talking

    Real bullish on euro so can't say I disagree :)
     
  4. well, that worked out well for us
     
  5. 12/12/12 @ 23:30PM: EUR/USD at 1.3090. Are short sellers/profit takers around the corner?

    Yep, if only Hershey could do that lol
     
  7. I can't do that at all.

    Reason: I do not trade forex, FYI.
     
  8. this is a departure for me. Everytime I have tried it I have gotten burned.

    so I'm 100% short usd, usually I would be long 2 pairs and short two pairs, and that has been very good and consistent for me becuase I can trade without stops

    didn't really think this one through, I have no loss prevention program in place

    so far so good, took some profits wednesday, reloaded, took some profits last night

    now going into the weekend very small, small enough I can survive anything

    either I'm going to need to go back to spreading (which is what got me here) or start using stops again

    question is, if I want to spread, which two do I switch sides on?
     
  9. ok, I'm over it

    short eur
    short cad

    thanks ben for the good week
