Terrible news from Japan with the earthquake. We have heard from most of our family there. Still waiting to hear from some family in Niigata which is near Sendai where the tsunami hit. Looks like we are in for a long night of waiting and worrying.

It is interesting to see the affect of the events on the market. Here is a shot of the market at the moment. My trade from last night was successful - entered on the arrow and target hit at the red line - but look at what is happening now. Falling, falling, falling.

日本がんばってください。

Seems that 2011 is not turning into a good year. Disasters all over the place.

Trust your family are safe.
Is price closing higher or lower than something? Simple yet powerful question. ..MO

Hi guys,

Thanks for your messages! The good news is that we have now heard from family in Niigata so everyone is okay. Sadly this brings no solace to all the other people affected who will never hear the good news that their loved ones are safe.

Apart from the nuclear reactor issues, it looks like now the next issue will be food. Our family in Tokyo went to the local supermarkets and convenience stores to buy food to send to the family in Sendai, but most places are sold out of everything.

Sigh.

It's a public holiday in Melbourne today so we are spending our time flicking between the news from Japan and the charts. Just opened a trade earlier on the GBPUSD. This chart is 10 pip renko with heiken ashi overlaid.

Sweet trade! Price just pulled back and hit my trailing stop. Got about 20 pips in the bag. Nice start to the week!

Signals up on USDCHF. Off we go...

Just watched "The Social Network". Interesting. Not sure it was worth all the hype, but a good movie nonetheless. Just about to make some popcorn and watch "The American". A chance for my wife and I to tune out from the worlds troubles for a while, and recharge our energies for the battles ahead.

Alrighty! Just finished watching "The American" I am not much of a George Clooney fan, but this was an excellent movie. His best work, right up there with "Michael Clayton".

As for trading, check out the chart below, we are still going. Profit is locked now so no matter what happens from here it will be a winner. Trying to decide if I should set a target down at the recent support line (where the 3 is on the left side of the screen) or if I should run a trailing stop, or both...

I'm going to do both. Just locked in more profit, set a trailing stop and a target. Win, win and win.

Maximum awesomeness! Last nights trade hit my target, and in fact ploughed on for another 30ish pips. Sweet trade.
