14th Dec 2018 – AUDUSD position long taken earlier in the week on positive US & China Trade Developments. Things were going well, was only 14 odd ticks away from Target 1 @ 7260, however poor data overnight from China caused prices to reverse. Stop was not trailed due to little volatility and possibility of price spikes, live video on YouTube.
7th Dec 2018 – earlier in the week I opened a position trade long in the EURUSD. The trade was opened on the 4th December to see prices rise in alignment with my fundamental bias to 1.15, however the week was incredibly range bound. I did not want to hold the trade over the weekend with the impending Brexit news early next week and was forced to cut the trade @ 1.14. The live video was recorded as per usual and has been uploaded onto the YouTube channel.
29th November 2018, £388.83 profit trading EURUSD position trade long. Opened x2 days ago, trade recorded live and is on YouTube.
23rd November 2018 – EURUSD position trade long (opened yesterday) to see a price rise from 1.14 to 1.15, poor EU PMI’s this morning the catalyst for the breakdown in momentum. Live video on YouTube.
20th November 2018, £227.70 profit trading EURUSD short. Yesterday I noted that there maybe an opportunity to sell the over-valued EURUSD in the short term to then buy it back at a lower price in alignment with my USD bear bias for the week. I’ve done the first part of that today and have cut the trade due to several factors suggesting a bounce. For an in-depth summary of why I closed the trade, please watch the live video on YouTube.
16th November 2018, I was out of the office on Friday so was unable to get this recorded live. However, I wanted to give the EURUSD short one final attempt on the pullback to see if we would get a continuation. The EUR had been diverging for the most part last week despite making new highs. I’m a trend trader so there are points when you try to continue selling into a down move or vice versa, you’re going to be proven wrong when the market reverses – that’s exactly what’s happened here. As the reversal has been caused by the Fed directly, I’ve now switched my bias to long heading into next week. In short, having a reversal with a catalyst is the best way to be proven wrong.
9th November 2018, £459.69 profit trading EURUSD short. Trade was opened yesterday, closed this morning. Expecting a pullback for a re-entry intraday today/next week. Live video on YouTube.
30th October 2018, Had an order on yesterday to buy EURUSD @ 1.14 looking for a pullback to 1.1450/Daily 20EMA, momentum ran out and disappointing GDP numbers out of the Eurozone this morning rolled prices over. The pair is still diverging here, but I will have to wait for the close of the session to see if I can give it another attempt. Live video on YouTube.
25th October 2018, £212.76 profit trading EURUSD short again after yesterday’s pull back. Live video on YouTube.
24th October 2018, £480.41 profit trading EURUSD short. Trade closed circa S3 expecting pull back for re-entry. Live video on YouTube.
19th October 2018 – Down just under 0.5% on x2 EURUSD trades today. Reversal on D1 bullish engulfing, has been a tricky week, on to next week. Live video on YouTube.
18th October 2018 – x2 Trades taken today, both attempts to see the USD come back to its range, one was a risk play and the other was a divergence play, both stopped as the USD pushed higher following yesterday’s hawkish FOMC minutes. Live video on YouTube.
16th & 17th October 2018 – After being up approx. 30 ticks, the EURUSD long ran out of steam and rolled over to stop me out overnight. Shame the highs couldn’t hold, wanted to see prices run through 1.1630 to 1.1650. Live video on YouTube.
10th October 2018, £239.42 profit trading EURUSD short. Bias switched yesterday, took advantage of the price move today. Live video on YouTube.
9th Oct 2018 – Took another short EURUSD trade, was looking for target of 1.1425, got as low as 1.1431 and reversed. Trailed stop to protect trade and was taken out at virtually breakeven (tiny profit). Noticed an interesting correlation RE USD, will go through this with Clients in the Trade Wrap video in the Drive later today. Live video on YouTube.
8th Oct 18 – EURUSD trade closed early for a profit of £76.57, I was looking for a break through 1.1450 to 1.1425, gave it the London session and due to the lack of any real US Volume this afternoon, I’ve decided to take the profit and re-evaluate tomorrow. Live video on YouTube.
5th October 2018 – Faked out on the EURUSD short continuation after Non Farm Payrolls today, stopped out 40 ticks. Wanted to see prices breach yesterday’s lows at approx. 1.1460. Live video on YouTube.
19th September 2018, Another shot at a EURUSD breakout through 1.1730, was up 25 ticks but the price reversed yet again. Current market conditions are clearly not suitable for any trending/range break strategies – will have to wait for the Fed before I do anything else now. Live video on YouTube.
18th September 2018, Tried the EURUSD breakout attempt long twice today, once during early EU session and once during US session – both rolled over. Very choppy conditions with the round number high circa 1.17 holding firm. Had price targets of 1.18+ so RR was good, in this case they just haven’t worked out. Live video on YouTube.
13th September 2018, £312.02 profit trading EURUSD long, US CPI & Unchanged ECB aiding the move, live video on YouTube – reasons for closing briefly discussed in video.

31st August 2018, £537.58 banked trading EURUSD short following yesterday’s live video. Analysis was correct, initial stop out was nothing more than short term Brexit noise. Live video part 2 on YouTube.
28th August 2018, small profit of £72.89 this morning trading EURUSD long, trade was cut due to weak momentum during initial breakout of 1.17, I wanted to see if I could enter later in the day at a better price, the market did pullback marginally but has since run stops up to the R1 target and I can’t warrant buying at current levels. Live video on YouTube.

Initially looking for the break to the upside through sess highs on an intraday move, rolled over on weak US data but then bounced back during US session.

1st February 2018: A positive start to the month, EURUSD Intraday –
Initial EURUSD sell off in early EU trade was quickly reversed when London came into the market (very similar to Tuesday’s price action). As a result, I only entered with half the normal size early on to ‘test’ the market sentiment after the FOMC last night. Once London had confirmed their bias, I entered an intraday strategy long, took half off when we approached yesterday’s highs and hoped to see 1.25. Market momentum was fading and tomorrow’s NFP number meant easy profit taking was on the cards for USD bears. Closed out with £472.90 net profit for the day. Live video on our YouTube channel.
