    Thanks Edijs – I did make a post yesterday about this. The weekend’s G20 meeting was certain to push the pair up a bit before the inevitable short. Sorry Shlomocool – I’ve made over 150 pips already on my trade :P

  • Shlomocool

  • Edijs Bethers

    Shlomocool, it didnt :D I`m 800+ usd (still growing)
    Ok, yes it did hit stop loss, but it isn`t possible to predict 100% right info.

    the gbp and euro shorts look interesting and worth a go. the higher u short at(on a declining instrument) better the % of win.

  • Shlomocool

    actually all the 4 (maybe the GBP/USD NOT)
    hit the stop loss.
    thats mean, that if someone listen to you guys he lose his money.
    so just think about it.
