I averaged up (dangerous) and was able to close everything with a small profit.

high impact NZ news at 3GMT is what finally moved it I suspect. I went to bed prior.

Yes noushina, I think we are both guilty of over-leveraging, the gap closed perfectly but with a drawdown that I couldn't handle (especially on AJ). See you next week.

AU and AJ are very interesting

I prefer to short when spread is high, since I dont virtually loose money because the Bid is the one drawing charts.

NZD pairs could fill soon, news was good for the euro, might take a while for these. If I would have traded my typical plan I would have been stopped on all but the NZD's
