    One Cypriot party leader stating deposit levy of 10% on accts over 100k. Not sure that is confirmed and lack of reaction in mkt supports not a done deal. But looks like levies in some form going to happen.

    Not sure you can do anything with that info so just an FYI

    Hi

    I'm new to currency trading. I'm reading and learning a lot from all the disscussions here - Thanks.

    I have done some trades this week, some good and some bad... But I got a really good last trade. Long 1,2896 to 1,2999. so positiv result for the week.

    IF there isn't bad news during the weekend I think next trade could be 1,2930 (66% drop of todays range) to 1,3060. Stoploss at 1,2880

    Desperate try for eu today to close the GAP!

    Some things:
    1. One week without closing gap
    2. Today eu try the last rise and it reach the top of kumo h4, without break it
    3. SSI change direction in every realse, no precise direction
    4. Last year euro open with a gap in a position like this ( around 13040, I remember )and not close it then it go up to 1.20

    Probably not 1.20 this time, probably this time we'll go under this point

    Only some ideas, but 1 thing is sure in this moment this level isn't correlated with real situation of eu economy, and isn't good for rebound of eu economy. US can't continue to put dollars in the market forever, this is my formula:

    decrasing QE+ birth of something like QE for Europe = Euro@100-1,10 Not today,not in 1 month but this is a possible future

    Good week-end traders

    AND..... GO BEARS GO

    anything worthwhile in life is done with passion - wars are won with passion, courage etc

    Euro next week

    Slow stochastic on 4hr is only 55, plenty of room for a POSSIBLE Penetration and also very thin cloud. Daily stoch and cloud is what I'm watching. But with whats happening in Europe, techs take 2nd place.

    ps. Only MY views, and just sharing MY thoughts, hope no one shoots me for this.

    I got short Euro just before the close at 1.2999 and 1.2982 with a 50 pip stop and 100 pip limit. US stock market has been bearish on Mondays pretty consistently and the Euro may be all bear Monday as well. I'm up 8 pips on one lot and down -9.5 on the other. I seldom hold over the weekend, but Cyprus meltdown seemed to be a good enough reason. I think good news will reverse it big time on Tuesday or Wednesday and we could see Euro back at 1.3150 +

    good luck with your trade Greg

    shame you didnt also take the opertunity to explain to any new traders that if the market were to gap up 100 points (certainly not saying it will but anything is possible) your fifty point stop does not protect you

    your trade will be closed at the opening price -100, or -200 or what ever - nothing wrong with trading over the weekend when you know thw risks - imho your assumed RR of 1:2 is not realistic on a weekend when there is such a high probability of a gap. it would be interesting to see if your limit works at +100 if it were to gap down 150 pips - you should ofcourse be closed 150 pips up

    most brokers are on the other end of their clients trades (sometimes indirectly through their partner bank) and profit when their clients lose. so good idea not to score any own goals - even if te intention wasnt there

    side note: saw a film again the other day, used to scare the crap out of me when i was a kid - about a time traveler who lands at a place in time where it appears humanity has evolved into a peaceful comune style society - he later discovers it is infact a farm of obediant humans that the Morlocks feed off - anyway probably a rubish film compared to nowadys standards but i like it

    yeah, makes sense, i agree with you, all tech analysis is less reliable with the current particuar/additionally uncertainties

    (important: please take this as an agreement/compliment to your view point - for the record it is in no way, and should not be interpritted as, an attempt to ''shoot you'')

    ps. i thought it was established that no one ''shot'' you (in which case there would have been no thought of a likelyhood of anyone starting shooting now). i see that i am wrong and that you feel you were 'right' all along - very unfortunate imo
