Trading strategy
Short term trading strategies in the major FX pairs - generally with an open and close on the same day, but in some cases stretching to two or three days if the local setup fits with the bigger perspective as well.
The account trades on retail spreads but without ticket fees for trades below the minimum threshold. This is in order to show the pure performance of the trades. The account and trade sizes are very modest to prevent absolute profit and loss swings from causing excessive distraction to the overall strategy execution.

    Spain to invoke Article 155 and dissolve Catalonia's autonomy, it has just been announced. Euro correcting lower on this. The market reaction thus far has been relatively modest, if rather sharp relative to recent low volatility markets. EURJPY is the highest beta mover as the Euro weakens. EURUSD is off a measly 40-50 pips from the earlier session high. We'll suspend judgment on the tactical implications here, but the market wasn't investing a great deal of fear in this event in the first place, so the contagion risks may prove minimal.A majority of Catalonians are not in favour of the separatist movement.
