How you had the confidence that the NZDUSD wouldn't settle back down after NFP is impressive. Very good call! Very well done. Jealousy abounds.

Thanks so much guys.. Ur right Ronald. From a risk/return perspective, it'd be best if I only focused on econ releases. But that'd be boring :)

To try to answer your question Moot. I've spent A LOT of time and effort using quantitative techniques (starting with "event studies," but I've moved beyond doing just those) to better understand the performance of various financial assets to various events (including mainly econ releases for FX and mergers/acquisitions for stocks). I began doing such studies back in school, and I've enjoyed doing them ever since.

FYI, My SL is now at 0.6936, and I will close before markets close today (which will be fairly soon).
