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.

    FX 4 next week: How to play the fading euro squeeze

    FX 4 next week: How to play the fading euro squeeze
    This will generally be a week for taking things as they come, as we have four central bank meetings on Wednesday and Thursday (all within about 20 hours), with solid reaction potential from the Riksbank, Federal Open Monetary Committee and not least the Reserve Bank of New Zealand after NZD was a very active mover (to the downside!) over the last week.

    FX Board: Euro squeeze done?
    The euro wilted broadly today on headlines from the Eurogroup's meetings with Greece . The USD, meanwhile, remains under broad, data-and-speculation driven pressure after a soft durable good print and concerns regarding next week's FOMC meeting.

    GBPUSD achieves major objective at 1.5175. GBP has received quite a boost today from renewed negative sentiment on the Euro after an ugly confrontation at the Euro Group meeting that doesn't promise any constructive developments for at least the nearest term. And yet another weak US data point (US Durable Goods Orders) is seeing further pressure on the USD - so GBPUSD has put on quite a show - though traders should know that it has just achieved a significant milesone at that 1.5175 level today - which is the 61.8% Fibo retracement of the sell-off from the late February highs to the mid-April lows. See chart below. I have a hard time seeing significant further gains for the pair from here with the FOMC next week and the UK election looming on May 7, but let's see where we close today and how the market action shapes up early next week.
