Weekend Update. Euro Rallies On Speculation Of Cyprus Resolution.

Weekend Update. Euro Rallies On Speculation Of Cyprus Resolution.The Cyprus problem is still with us, but Euro pairs rallied today on speculation that a resolution to the bailout problem would be forthcoming.

Discussions are currently on going and the latest word on the street, is that they will have a deal either tonight, or at some point over the weekend.

They need to find approximately 6 billion Euros for their share of the EU bailout proposal, and the idea of taxing bank deposits to get that money did not go down very well with the Russians, or Cypriot savers. So this i feel is the problem. They need to tax deposits in such a way as to keep the majority happy. I believe the solution will be to take a higher tax from the most wealthy individuals, thus upsetting a few that can well afford the tax, rather than hitting the many that cannot.

I have had a good trading week. I did get a losing trade on Euro Yen yesterday which cost me 30 pips, but i more than made up for that today with 3 Yen trades for 129 pips.

Here is the update for the week.

Monday i took 2 trades, both on Euro Dollar. I took it long at 12935 up to 12970 for 35 pips. I also took it short at 12993 down to 12950 for 43 pips.

Tuesday did not look at all promising at the start, and i did not think i would get a trade as the markets were going sideways in a pretty tight range. The price action was very poor. We did get a bit of movement late on, which gave me 2 long trades. I took Euro long at 12846 up to 12886 for 40 pips. I also took EJ long at 12186 up to 12250 for 64 pips.

Wednesday i had 3 little trades. One Cable long at 15039 up to 15070 for 31 pips. I also took EJ short 12392 down to 12362 for 30 pips. I then took EJ short again at 12445 down to 12414 for 31 pips.

Thursday i took EJ long at 12396 which i closed out at 12366 for a 30 pip loss. 🙁 I then took EJ long again at 12310 up to 12349 which gave me 39 pips. I then took it long again at 12274 up to 12311 which gave me 37 pips.

Losing trades are not nice, but they do happen from time to time, but if you have a good understanding of the markets you can quickly recover from a losing trade. It used to really bother me when i had losing trades, but because i have complete confidence in what i do, i know i can recover the lost pips easily.

Today was a good day. I could have had 300 pips plus today if i had held on to my long Yen positions, but at the time we were in a strong downtrend, and i thought it prudent to bank my pips just in case the Yen pairs continued the move down.

The first trade of the day was Euro Yen long at 12185 up to 12225 for 40 pips. This trade did go against me initially, but i was confident it would be a winning trade so i held onto it and added to it at 12156. I closed that position at 12225 for 69 pips. I also took at little trade on Dollar Yen at 94.30 which i closed at 94.50 for 20 pips.

Total trades for the week 13. 12 winners 1 loser. Total pips 449.
