    Hi Alki - do you have an email if we want to keep in touch after this shuts down? To continue trading chat/banter? If you reply to an old convo, it won't come to the top (ie. to broadcast to more people!)

    If the site does indeed closedown or simply stop functioning (24th) then to all the regulars onsite that I have had the joy of meeting and learning from over the years may I wish you every success with your trading.
    As an off topic posting may I highlight the divergence on Bund to 10yr Notes yield disparity....@ 2.6% to put this into perspective when the Euro project started the spread on yield was thus far apart so seasoned spread/arbitrage traders out there may want to track this pair IMHO. Remember that we are trading opposing markets in the near term duration and that Notes have a greater rate of change so when building your 1:1 positional arbitrage account also for rates of change and simply skim your net gain. VIX can only remain at extremes for a certain length of time before an average range occurs bringing the VIX back to normal ranges.....I suspect that is the same between Bund and Bond ! Trade for yield normalisation or even faster price distortion.

    I am in a WhatsApp group for traders. There are only 2 europeans and one US citizen. All the others are Asians (India, Pakistan, Malaysia, Indonesia, China). They are nice guys and some of them are very good in trading. Should this fit you let me know and we can add you to the group. Just Forex and metals.

    CABLE - Weak rally keeps sentiment bearish.
    Yesterday's report highlighted an oversold situation. That proved justified as, after marginally failing to reach of 1st downside target, some profit taking developed. The resulting bounce was not an aggressive one but limited net movement suggested that selling pressure had stalled. But the upside failure at Tuesday’s Marabuzo line has led to some renewed selling interest in Asia, confirming the underlying bearish tone.
    We look to Sell at 1.3156 and 1.3180.
    The stop is 1.3224 bid with targets 1.3137, 1.3118 and 1.3088.

    Got Trumped a bit last night with a USDJPY trade stopped out (small loss fortunately) and another one long trade, GBPJPY, stopped at break even. I suppose I owe that to US - China spats lately. Great job. Mr Donald!

    Gold ready for action
    Since the mid-May mini collapse, when short-covering took the dollar sharply higher and metals lower, gold has increasingly been settling into a relatively tight range around $1,300/oz. We believe, however, that the risk of another cat-out-of-the-bag rally has increased.
