    Hi Alan, hope you are having a fabulous trading session, in a prior posting you mentioned leverage, in Canada on currencies, the average allowed leverage is 10:1, the biggest is 43:1 on USDCAD, and EURUSD and GBPUSD are next at 33:1, so not crazy like lots of brokers that go to 100:1 or some even more. But leverage is evil, I rarely use leverage, even on futures, I will go up to 5:1 if I am a nice swing trade working on day 2, if its a Wednesday or Thursday of the month

    VIX closed lower for the 4th strait day, and so I was curious to see what the SPY has done following prior instances, its a little boring, but a lot of green. Also we are in the week before Memorial Day, so that should give us 78% probability to be long this week.

    Thanks for your comments (balancing the venal remarks
    by that "tyre kicker"). My AUDUSD trading analysis & forecast (mentioned Yesterday, as my best opportunity for this week)
    is working out very well so far. Stops take care of the risk
    (just above BE now to ensure a profit). You're welcome to
    join my Global FX List, email me at: max@enterprise.net.nz

    US Wrap: Oil gushes and Wall Street climbs

    NY Focus: It may have been a holiday in large parts of Europe and all of Canada, but New York traders were hard at work. Liquidity was a tad less than stellar, but that little wrinkle didn’t stop a “risk-on,” profit-taking slide in the US dollar.

    Wall Street jumped all over the positive tone to the China/US trade talks, thankful that, according to Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin; “a trade war is on hold.” A 1.7% jump in WTI oil prices boosted energy stocks. The DJIA closed with a gain of 1.21%, the S&P 500 rose 0.74%, and the NASDAQ finished with a 0.59% gain, all of which were below their best levels of the day. The Chicago Fed National Activity Index for April rose to 0.34 from an upwardly revised .32 in March.

    Oil prices soared because of supply disruptions in Nigeria and Venezuela and US threats of severe sanctions on Iran. The US wants Iran to leave Syria and stop their nuclear program.

    There will be lots of "back and forth" and "on and off" BS in this trade war stuff.
