  6. USD/JPY IS REACHING BEARISH EXHAUSTION, MAY REVERSE AT LEVEL 103.23 Key Resistance Levels: 111.000, 112.000, 113.000 Key Support Levels: 104.000, 103.000, 102.000 USD/JPY Price Long-term Trend: Bearish The USD/JPY pair has been in a downward move since November 12 after a rebound above level 103.30. The pair is approaching the previous support at level 103.30. The selling pressure will resume if the current is broken. The Yen will resume an upward move if the support holds. USD/JPY – Daily Chart Daily Chart Indicators Reading: The 21-day SMA and the 50-day SMA are sloping downward indicating the downtrend. The pair has fallen to level 40 of the Relative Strength Index period 14. The pair is in the downtrend zone and capable of falling. USD/JPY Medium-term Trend: Bearish On the 4-hour chart, the pair has been in a downward move after rejection at 105.00. On November 18 downtrend; a retraced candle body tested the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level. This indicates that the market will fall to level 1.272 Fibonacci extensions.

  7. EURJPY BEARISH MOMENTUM REMAINS TOWARD 123.00 LEVEL EURJPY Price Analysis – November 20 The EURJPY pair is attempting to close beneath the 123.37 price zone as speculative interest stays trapped between coronavirus outbreaks and vaccine hopes. The pairs selling momentum remains toward the 123.00 level. Key Levels Resistance Levels: 127.07, 125.00, 123.37 Support Levels: 122.37, 121.61, 119.31 EURJPY Long term Trend: Ranging As seen in the daily time frame, the downside pressure is expected to accelerate if EURJPY breaks below the 123.00 support, exposing the ascending trendline support and the 122.37 low. Meanwhile, the moving average 5 and 13 stays mixed for a range in the coming sessions. If the 123.00 support holds, a surge towards the 123.40 level could be expected during the following trading session. However, a barrier around the MA 13 could serve as a limitation for bullish traders within this session. Lower here a firm breach of 119.31 level will argue that the rise from 114.42 level has completed and turned the focus back lower. EURJPY Short term Trend: Ranging The intraday bias in EURJPY is staying in consolidation with the current recovery. A much more decline is mildly in consideration with 123.37 minor resistance level intact. Beneath the 122.37 level will target a test on the 121.61 low level initially. The resolute breach there may restart the trend from 127.07 level with another decline to 119.31 key support level. On the upside, though, a breach of 123.37 minor resistance level may shift sentiment back to the upside for the 125.00 level instead. Source: https://learn2.trade
  8. Let’s skim some features of Dominion from the manual 1. Dominion is a black box with votes ultimately tabulated in a central server system. Who has access to the central server and where is the manual and security reviews of that server software? 2. Local IT can clandestinely change settings to potentially alter an entire election. There are no checks and balances or observers of the local IT guy when he accesses machine debug and admin settings. Its unclear if a log exists. 3. Many complex rules decide how the “straight ticket” option works, but he system can be set up to ignore votes for individuals if a straight ticket vote is selected. 4. Network Security is very weak since all software access keys use the same cryptographic pair. This gives plausible deniability to whoever potentially decides to mess around with voting settings. It cant be proven who changed a setting since everybody has the same key 5. Digital certificates are not protected by password, and Dominion user manual explicitly says not to enter a password. This enables potential for bad actors to MITM attack data traveling over network between precinct tabulator and central tabulator. 6. Cryptic “split rotation” function that features the ability to “force a maximum deviation”. There is no definition of a “split rotation”, so we cannot know what “force a maximum deviation” means in this instance. 7. Settings can be changed during evening downtime on first night of voting. Much easier to change settings on hundreds of machines than to forge thousands of ballots. A couple of people can do it quickly. 8. The word “Cast” became “Print”, obfuscating the moment when your vote becomes officially cast. Reason for the semantic changes requested by the State of Pennsylvania to the Dominion voting software is currently unknown. 9. There is an option to force the vote scanner to “overrun” a preset amount of ballots every time anybody pauses the scan mid-batch. “Overrun” is undefined. Potential for abuse is high with this function, which was added shortly after 2018 mid-term elections. ... Americans have a bad and chronic case of “it can’t happen here” ... I'm just sayin'
  9. “The press in our free country is reliable and useful not because of its good character but because of its great diversity. As long as there are many owners, each pursuing his own brand of truth, we the people have the opportunity to arrive at the truth and to dwell in the light. The multiplicity of ownership is crucial. It’s only when there are a few owners, or, as in a government-controlled press, one owner, that the truth becomes elusive and the light fails. For a citizen in our free society, it is was an enormous privilege and a wonderful protection to have access to hundreds of periodicals, each peddling its own belief. There is safety in numbers: the papers expose each other’s follies and peccadillos, correct each other’s mistakes, and cancel out each other’s biases. The reader is was free to range around in the whole editorial bouillabaisse and explore it for the one clam that matters—the truth.” E. B. White That is gone. And social media is blatantly censoring free expression of viewpoints. ... But,. more insidious than top down media censorship is self censorship. ... fear of being ‘cancelled’ socially "Media censorship is a shift in the flow of information, while self-censorship is a shift in consciousness. It is the dangerous cornerstone of group-think." Dylan Thomas just saying

  15. Date : 13th November 2020.A risk-back-on theme has emergedThe Pound was showing a 0.5% gain on the US Dollar as of the late London morning, and the UK currency was also making gains versus the Euro, Yen and other currencies. Several factors appear to be at play. One is the rebound in equity markets, which, if view edas a revival of the Covid vaccine rally, is a positive for the Pound, with the UK having large pre-orders of the Pfizer candidate vaccine.The European bourses have recovered and are mostly in the green, albeit slightly having pared gains, with the GER30 up about 0.1%, though the UK100 is -0.6% lower. European stock indices are racking up gains of over 0.5% and USA500 futures are up by nearly 1%, nearly reversing all of the closing losses that the cash version of the index saw on Wall Street yesterday. The UK saw the biggest peak to trough drop in its GDP this year out of the G20 economies, so it may benefit most in the route out of the crisis.Another consideration is the political developments on Downing Street, with the departure of the government’s director of communications, and news that Dominic Cummings will leave his advisory role by Christmas, being read as a weakening in the influence of the ‘Vote Leave’ campaigners, meaning there could be a softer, more pragmatic attitude to Brexit, although it is not yet clear what shape the new administration set-up will take. As for the ongoing negotiations, there is still no breakthrough with only about a week to go to the ‘final final’ deadline.Evidently, given the Pound’s performance, the prevailing market expectation remains that there will be a last minute climbdown and the two sides will strike a deal, which is what is anticipated. Both sides will have to make concessions if a deal is to be achieved. All things Brexit go down to the wire, and neither side has been willing, as yet, to make the first move in the concession game. Too much is at stake for both sides, surely, for there to be a failure in statesmanship. It should also be clear that the UK government has the option of exiting the common market in close alignment to EU rules and then diverging in an evolving process over time. The promise of future divergence would serve to mollify the powerful faction of Brexit ideologues.There is also the possibility of there being a ‘technical delay’, though the political mood seems set against this. UK media, meanwhile, have been increasingly highlighting the likely disruptive impacts to cross border trade that are likely to be seen when the UK leaves the single market and customs union in just seven weeks’ time.Cable posted a high at 1.3185, which recouped nearly two thirds of yesterday’s decline, while EURGBP dropped to levels under 0.9002, correcting from yesterday’s high.Always trade with strict risk management.

  17. Date : 12th November 2020.FX Update – November 12 – Sterling Pressured, JPY in DemandGBPJPY, H1Some reversal in recent positioning themes has been seen, with the dollar bloc and Pound softening against the Dollar, and the Yen outperforming moderately. This dynamic has been concomitant with global stock markets, outside the case of Japan, flagging. A fall in Chinese tech stocks, sparked by Beijing regulators launching an antitrust investigation, led a broader paring of recent gains in equity markets, which surged over the last week. Some caution had already been creeping back into markets, at least enough to deter investors from entering new positions at the recently heightened levels. The raised level of optimism for a Covid-19 vaccine assisted return to normality remains intact, though there is some way to go and there are known unknowns, including long-term vaccine efficacy and population-wide safety issues. There also appears to be some disquiet about Trump’s refusal to accept the election results, especially with his move to fire his defence secretary, which some fear means that he will try to stay in office. Unnamed Trump aides cited by the Washington Post, however, say that he has no real plan to overturn the results. Japan’s Nikkei 225 gets a special mention for bucking the trend in rallying to a fresh 29-year high.In currencies, EURUSD has been trading neutrally in the mid-to-upper 1.1700s. The pair completed a more-than 50% retrace of the outsized gain the pair saw last week and through to Monday, which left a two-month peak at 1.1920. USDJPY has ebbed moderately, to the lower 105.00s. The Pound has come under some moderate pressure, correcting recent gains. There is still no breakthrough in EU-UK trade talks. Sources cited by Reuters yesterday reported that the ‘final-final’ deadline is the end of next week, (November 20) so the clock is ticking. The general expectation remains that there will be a last minute climbdown and the two sides will strike a deal. Media networks, meanwhile, are increasingly highlighting the likely disruptive impacts of the UK leaving the single market and customs union, which will happen in just seven weeks’ time. Today’s UK GDP data, although a Q3 record at 15.5%, showed further weakness during September and was 3 ticks below expectations of 15.8%. The current data shows the UK economy is -9.7% smaller than it was at the end of Q4 2019.Technically, GBPJPY rejected 140.00 yesterday, moving under the 20-Hour moving average into the close. Today the pair have moved under 139.00 and tested S2 at 138.70, and R3 is at 138.05. The fast MAs are aligned and trending lower, RSI is 36 and falling, the MACD histogram & signal line are also aligned lower and breached 0 line this morning. Stochastics have moved into the oversold zone but remain weak. The H1 ATR is 0.1630, and the Daily ATR is 1.3000.Elsewhere, the Kiwi Dollar dropped back after a short-lived rally following remarks by RBNZ’s Hawkesby, who said that while negative interest rates remain an option, less monetary stimulus now appears necessary than previously thought, which essentially repeated the signalling from the central bank yesterday in the wake of its policy review. NZDUSD printed a 20-month high at 0.6914 before retreating to the mid 0.6800s.Always trade with strict risk management.

  18. ANALYST BELIEVES BITCOIN IS WORKING ACCORDING TO PLAN AHEAD OF SIX-DIGIT PROJECTION The creator of the popular stock-to-flow model, PlanB, has affirmed that Bitcoin (BTC) is going according to plan like “clockwork, “ following its third halving event. PlanB, an anonymous developer, has lauded the S2FX model and believes that BTC will be trading between $100,000 and $288,000 by the end of 2021. The stock-to-flow model and other existing variations are some of the most used BTC prediction tools within the cryptocurrency community. The first version of S2FX, known as the original stock-to-flow ratio, outlined the stock of existing reserves and the flow (the annual supply of BTC in the market). The ensuing version provided more complex and comprehensive Bitcoin information. Apart from stock and flow, it also showed the different phases BTC has passed through since its creation in 2009. These phases include proof-of-concept, the payment phase, e-gold, and financial assets. The Bitcoin halving, which occurs automatically every four years, is arguably the most crucial part of the models because it cuts BTC supply in half, which decreases the flow. That said, PlanB and S2FX supporters monitor Bitcoin’s price performance assiduously after every halving. The analyst asserted that the benchmark cryptocurrency is moving like clockwork since its third halving in May. already, Bitcoin is showing some similarities with the price dynamics in 2012. BTCUSD – 4-Hour Chart Key BTC Levels to Watch in the Near-Term — November 11 Bitcoin remains on a strong bullish trajectory, despite many projections that bullish steam might be running out. The cryptocurrency has renewed its 2020 high, after hitting $16,000 just a few hours ago. This is a good sign that the bullish momentum is still intact. That said, we could see BTC hit the $16,500 – $17,000 area soon. However, we could see a mild pullback towards the mid-$15,000 in the coming hours.

  19. ETHEREUM (ETH) PRICE ANALYSIS: ETHER HOVERS ABOVE $450 SUPPORT FOR A POSSIBLE UPTREND CONTINUATION Key Highlights Ether fluctuates above $450 support The coin has a target price of $488 high Ethereum (ETH) Current Statistics The current price: $458.89 Market Capitalization: $52,029,363,330 Trading Volume: $14,108,917,588 Major supply zones: $280, $320, $360 Major demand zones: $160, $140, $100 Ethereum (ETH) Price Analysis November 11, 2020 On November 10, the altcoin rebounded but could not break the $470 resistance. The upward move was repelled as price retraced to the $455 low. The upside momentum will always resume as long as price finds support above $450 support. Presently, the coin is trading at $462 at the time of writing. On the upside, a strong bounce above $460 will propel price to break the $470 resistance. Ether will rally above $488 once the $470 resistance is breached. The upside momentum will be invalidated if the bears break the $450 and the $430 support level. ETH/USD – Daily Chart ETH Technical Indicators Reading Ethereum is trading above the resistance line of the ascending channel. The biggest altcoin will continue to trend higher as long as price is sustained above the resistance line. The coin will resume a downward move if the price breaks below the resistance line. ETH/USD – 4 Hour Chart Conclusion Ethereum bulls are close to breaking the resistance at $470. Once the resistance is broken the Fibonacci tool analysis will hold. When the coin was resisted on November 7 uptrend, the retraced candle body tested the 50% Fibonacci retracement level. This explains that the coin is likely to move up to level 2.0 Fibonacci extension which is $539.17 high. Source: https://learn2.trade
  20. Date : 11th November 2020.FX Update – November 11 – USD lifts, JPY drops, & GBP mixedThe Dollar has firmed against the Euro and other European currencies outside the case versus the Pound, with the UK currency posting two-month highs against both the Dollar and Yen, while holding steady-to-lower against the dollar bloc before rotating lower as the news broke that the mid-Nov trade deal deadline looks to be extended from November 15 into next week.The risk-on mood has continued. Europe’s Stoxx 600 equity index rallied to its best levels in eight months, and S&P 500 E-mini futures were showing a gain of nearly 0.8% as of the early afternoon in London. The 10-year US T-note yield rose 1.5 bp to a new eight-month high at 0.979%. Commodities were mixed, however, though oil prices gained more than 3%.In forex markets, Yen weakness and outperformance in commodity currencies and those of export oriented economies have been prevailing. USDJPY lifted back above 105.50, though remained shy of the highs seen on Monday, while AUDJPY and NZDJPY posted new two- and 10-month highs, respectively.A pricing out of negative interest rate expectations in New Zealand following the RBNZ policy review today, which saw policymakers signal that the need for more monetary stimulus has reduced, boosted the Kiwi Dollar, which gained about 1% on the US Dollar and by more against the Yen. But biggest mover today, so far is EURNZD down some 1.5% from early day trades at 1.7350 to 1.7090 lows now.The Japanese currency’s pronounced underperformance on Monday and continued softness marks a return to form with an inverse correlation of risk appetite in global markets. The success of Pfizer’s candidate vaccine for Covid in trials has been greeted as a game changer by investors. Bank shares, which hit record valuation lows this year, and so-called social-close stocks along with energy shares have rallied strongly, revealing that investors are looking across the valley of the prevailing predicament of Covid-related restrictions and economic weakness, and beyond to a return to normality in 2021. There is naturally some caution (known unknowns include long-term vaccine efficacy and population-wide safety), which has seen asset price gains lose momentum, though the massive fiscal and monetary stimulus that is in the works across the world, and the lower-for-longer monetary policy rubric at the Fed and other central banks (which enhances the value of corporate earnings), is a powerful tonic for higher valuations in cyclical assets. There are also a multitude of other credible Covid-19 vaccine candidates, aside from Pfizer’s, many of which have been reporting encouraging signs in advanced-stage testing.Always trade with strict risk management.

  21. Date : 10th November 2020.USA100 holds under extensive pressureGlobal stock markets are mostly higher, resuming yesterday’s stellar day on Wall Street as the indexes raced sharply higher on surprisingly positive vaccine news from Pfizer and BioNTech. News from Pfizer that its COVID vaccine is very effective prompted risk-on conditions globally, lifting stocks, yields and crude oil prices.In the Asian market equities petered out amid the realisation that there are still considerable challenges ahead in the fight against Covid-19, however there is at least a light at the end of the tunnel now that will also reduce the pressure on central banks to add ever more stimulus. Currently however equities other than the European ones have settled in a comparatively narrow range.The GER30 is up, after correcting some of yesterday’s sharp gains, but is holding above early lows. Other European indices are higher, with the UK100 gaining a further 0.8%, the CAC 40 up 0.5% and the Spanish IBEX 1.8%. The wider Euro Stoxx 600 has risen 7% over the past 5 days, but is still down 6% over the year, highlighting that there is still room for further improvement if and when it is confirmed that the virus situation is under control and Europe doesn’t face a further cycle of lockdowns and restrictions.On the US side however the USA100 holds in the red after it closed yesterday -1.5% lower. The hopes for a more normal life saw investors pile into travel and leisure sectors, and flee the stay home sectors. Hence, the USA100’s gains lagged through for a second consecutive day and the index fell into negative territory. The USA100 was hit by the rotation out of defensive technology stocks into shares that will benefit most from an end to lockdowns.The asset is in a dramatic shift this week towards negative sentiment. Selling pressure has ramped up and there has been a significant breakdown on the 20-day SMA and a reversal of more than 50% of last week’s gains. The latest higher high at 12,422 has been rejected suggesting that the 3-month descending triangle is still in place and consolidation is underway. Momentum indicators are now flat to negative in the daily chart, while intraday they are decisively negative, with 4-hour RSI consistently failing under 40 and MACD readying to turn negative. This suggests an outlook of selling into near term strength.Hence now the November higher low and 100FE at 10,929 and 11,155 are the areas to be seen of overhead supply and a near term sell-zone for any bounces this week. Breaking down below the 10,929 and more precisely 10,700 (September low & 3-month support) could confirm a medium term bearish outlook with immediate support levels on the March-September upleg. There is initial resistance at 12,000 – 12,422 .Always trade with strict risk management.

  22. Trump did not drain the swamp(s). From what I see he did not even try very hard to keep that promise... it was not a ‘first things first’ thing for him ... so systemic corruption continues endemic and more obvious than ever - but more saliently, the west is solidly back on track for technocratic tyranny... Meanwhile, the Harris/Biden ‘election’ is less legitimate than LBJ’s. " “Indeed, you won the elections, but I won the count.” — Nicaraguan dictator Anastasio Somoza “I consider it completely unimportant who in the party will vote, or how; but what is extraordinarily important is this — who will count the votes, and how.” Boris Bazhanov, one of Stalin’s boys... ie ... ‘daley’ type machines all over the country. Joe didn’t just Sigmund slip when he boasted they had built the largest vote fraud organization in history... Because a large portion of the people view themselves as the enemies of this next president, his credibility will remain far below that of tricky Dick’s ( which was always pretty dam low btw) . Remember how many people refused to accept Trump as their president? That many will refuse Harrisbiden as their ‘real’ president . They’ll see both Biden and Kamala as bought and paid for corrupt puppets ... high end ‘useful idiots’, tasked with deconstruction... Fortunately, we have no reasons at all to anticipate any economic crisis any time soon :facetious face: So let’s get started. The orders go out... the word ‘socialism’ is now verboten. It cost them a bunch of seats in Congress. (But don’t worry AOC and Bernie, etc., you are still ‘useful idiots’ too .) But in the (new)speak it’s a strict and quick reversion back to the code word for socialism - which is ‘democracy’... Btw -with all the (new)speak, it may be time to internally flip the words as they are delivered... example: when you hear the word “science”, realize it is being used to keep you from thinking, not because of any real, confirmed science... real “science” is gone ... corrupt ‘funding’. Words like “unity” and “peace” can be immediately flipped... unity only of those completely compliant ... and dang it, sure enough ‘peace’ means ‘war’ once again. It’s hard to indebt both sides if no one is fighting- like for the last three years. So when you hear them say "our democracy" ... A big (fake and temporary) push for “equality” is coming... equality of outcomes, that is... not equality of opportunity, not equality under the law... but the vapor equality money will only be effective for a little bit, then... The constitution is ‘alive’ again. And it’s living with perceived malignancies, also known as amendments, that really would be better excised instead of flanked... but as long as the judicial system is corrupt and biased, flanking will have to do...
  23. Date : 9th November 2020. Events to Look Out for This Week.Uncertainty and doubts soared in November as the virus surged, the FED and ECB have been unable to deliver more stimulus yet, and the US election is indicating a Biden presidency and a split Congress, with Republicans likely to retain the Senate and Democrats retaining the House. More volatility looks to be in store for next week as the market monitors economic data and events for signs of faltering growth in the US and Europe into a recession. Monday – 09 November 2020 BoE Governor Bailey speech and BoE Haldane (GBP, GMT 10:35 & 14:00) – The BoE in November topped up its asset purchase program by a further GBP 150 bln. That was a pretty clear indication that the BoE is not expecting to go down the negative rate route and that the weapon of choice remains asset purchases, which will help the government to raise the funds necessary to finance the costly labour market support and stimulus program. Tuesday – 10 November 2020 Consumer Price Index (CNY, GMT 01:30) – Chinese inflation data in September was lower at 0.2% m/m and 1.7% y/y. October’s reading however is expected to grow to 1.8% y/y as China shows recovery in key sectors. Average Earnings (GBP, GMT 07:00) – Average Earnings excluding bonus are expected to have grown by 1.2% (3Mo/Yr) in September. The ILO unemployment rate is expected to have declined to 4.3% from 4.5% in the three months to September. Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – German ZEW economic sentiment for September is expected to have spiked to 67.7 in November. The Eurozone presents a picture of a split economy in general with manufacturing holding up and services struggling, and that effect will also widen the gap between Eurozone economies, as countries relying more on services and tourism will struggle much more than Germany. Wednesday – 11 November 2020 Interest Rate Decision and Conference (NZD, GMT 14:00) – In September, at the last meeting, the RBNZ left its official cash rate and QE program unchanged, as had been widely anticipated, but stressed a willingness to take further stimulus measures if necessary while noting persisting downside risks to the economy, adding that currency strength remains a negative for NZ exporters. The RBNZ indicated it is actively working on a negative rate stance and the expansion of QE. Thursday – 12 November 2020 Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 07:00) – The November BoE report took into account the resurgence of Covid-19 case numbers and the resulting restrictions in the UK and elsewhere and hence the GDP is expected to contract again in the last quarter of the year, largely due to “lower consumer spending on social activity, which was assumed to be partially offset by higher spending on other goods and services”. However as per the preliminary report, GDP for Q3 is seen to deteriorate further and present a still dismal -20.5% q/q contraction, and -22.4% y/y from -21.5%. Harmonized Index of Consumer Prices (EUR, GMT 07:00) –The final German HICP inflation for October is seen at -0.4% y/y from -0.5%. Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – The CPI headline and core are both expected to show with 0.2% October gains, following 0.2% gains for both in September as well. CPI gasoline prices look poised to be flat in October so they’ll have no impact on the headline. As-expected October figures would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.3%, steady from September. Friday – 13 November 2020 Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 10:00) – The release of preliminary Q3 GDP numbers for the Eurozone two weeks ago confirmed that economic activity rebounded as lockdowns were lifted with most countries’ data actually coming in stronger than initially anticipated. Hence unchanged number are anticipated for this week’s reading as the activity levels remain far below those seen a year ago, while at the same time there is the resurgence in virus cases and renewed lockdowns across most major Eurozone countries. Producer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – As with PPI, a flat October headline gain is forecasted with 0.2% for the core, following 0.4% gains for both in September. The y/y core reading is assumed to rise to the 1.5% area into the turn of the year, with a downward hit from reduced aggregate demand but a boost for prices from supply disruptions. Supply constraints for some sectors will prove increasingly important in Q4. Always trade with strict risk management.

  24. There is nothing wrong with a $27,000 loss - unless it was a larger percentage of your capital than you should have had at risk... and if you didn’t already have that knowledge before you began, having “whole knowledge” instead of “half knowledge” would not help one bit ... as if “whole knowledge” is actually possible . You could memorize all the knowledge in the https://www.libraryofmistakes.com/ and master every trading technique known to humans, but everything we see and know becomes limited and split off from the whole by that seeing and knowing itself. So, as long as you are paying attention to seeking more outer ‘knowledge of the markets’ (or, as in your case, attempting to leverage other people’s knowledge) than you are paying attention to understanding your own tendencies as they wave through in real time, you are still at great risk of losing another ‘27,000’. ie As long as you are more concerned with what you perceive than about learning about how you perceive, then all the 'voice of trading' advise you get in here and give yourself will come at great cost. I don’t mean to be harsh even though it might read that way. I really wish you all the best and hope you recover all your losses and go way beyond...
  25. Date : 6th November 2020. NFP Friday on a US Election week! Treasury Action: losses on Treasuries have accelerated even as stocks sag. Some of the action is a function of unwinding of some of this week’s big moves. But there’s some renewed concerns creeping back into the markets as the expectation for a split Congress is coming into doubt as special elections are likely necessary in January. The US Dollar headed a bit higher after the jobs report, which revealed a higher than consensus NFP print, and saw the unemployment rate fall to 6.9% from 7.9%. USDJPY rallied to 103.48 from 103.35, while EURUSD dipped toward 1.1865 from 1.1880. Equity futures remain in the red, though off earlier lows, while yields ticked slightly higher before pulling back. [MEDIA=facebook]390059935451192[/MEDIA] Always trade with strict risk management.

  26. Half knowledge is dangerous especially when your into trading. You keep you capital at risk so before that as a trader you should analysis everything and step into it. If you are struggling in Demo account then do not jump into live account. Don't be in a hurry to earn money.
  27. My tip would be that as a trader you should always have faith in yourself, whether success or failure always try to learn from the situation and move on. Don't become a sadist. Decisions ability will improve by this kind of attitude.
