Hey everybody! First off, I just want to apologize to all my readers. I experienced some technical difficulties in uploading my blog post this past weekend and as a result, was unable to open the voting period for the Trade of the Week contest on time. I guess practicing throwing ninja stars in the office isn’t the best idea I’ve had.

I also want to apologize to those of you who submitted trade ideas to this week’s contest. But don’t worry, your efforts were not in vain!

I’ve decided to extend the voting period until 12:00 a.m. GMT, Tuesday, April 24, 2012. Hopefully, this gives everyone enough time to go through the submitted entries (listed below) and vote for his or her favorite setup!

  • CHF/JPY Short by Bijoymj
  • EUR/JPY Long by dudest
  • GBP/USD Short by Lupos
  • NZD/USD Long by imtrader
  • USD/JPY Long by TopFroxx
  • EUR/CAD Short by donnapinciotti
  • EUR/USD Short by Justin Pipper

Once again, I apologize for the inconvenience!
