Aaand we have a tie! Both Jabroni and Littlebopip garnered 18 votes each for their awesome trade ideas. Check out the setups they spotted. You may just be able to make a handful of pips from them!

It looks like both winners are bullish for the dollar this week. Jabroni shows a possible short on AUD/USD on the 1-hour and daily timeframes.

    nice trades idea :) certainly deserve a closer look 

    i m gonna stick with XAU and XAG for now. 

    they are bound for soem corrections, but given the way markets started (asia started on a negative note), i see no reason why XAu and XAG wouldnt end the week on a great positive note 

    also contributing to this … the ,,libian oil crisis” (if that s the word for it…) add fuel to the fire of incertitudes
