which pair for short-term trading?

  1. I already trade the cable and the eurusd but looking to add a couple new pairs to my plan. I have looked at the GBPJPY and it looks pretty good. Any other suggestions for some pairs that move fairly well throughout the US trading day?
  2. Check out the USD/JPY.

    Definitely GBPJPY and/or EURJPY. USDJPY is just a bore to me now, with these two. Even EURJPY can get "sleepy" at times compared to GBPJPY. Not sure if you're as manic as I am though. :)
  4. AUD/USD has always been my favorite....until of as late - too thinly traded right now. Should pick up again in the new year....It provides some great moves and is more readable(imo) than EUR/JPY (which is probably the best for big intraday moves).

    If you can follow all of the drivers behind the AUD, you can enter some good trades with confidence.....equity markets, commodities, and it's carry trade/risk aversion buddies (AUD/JPY, USD/JPY, EUR/JPY, NZD/USD).

    Keep fit, and have fun!
