Well I had a very nice trade going off the news this morning that is until my boss walked in !#$!$!# me all up! I was long the loonie riding the positive housing numbers for over 20+ pips patiently awaiting the Interest Rate Statement when my boss walks in and wants to "go over something..." with me and "get my feedback". When I got back to my desk of course it had plummeted 50+ pips the other direction!
I think I need to start taking the laptop to a bathroom stall or janitor's closet around the big news events.
That is one of the few things I don't like about oanda's platform no trailing stops. I had a manual sl in place so it wasn't really that bad just that I missed a ton of pips going the other way that I would have gotten if I was babysittin it.
I made a quick 17 PIPS and got out on the employment numbers this AM. I got in late as it looked like the numbers came out early?? The price jumped 50 PIPS in a matter of seconds about 3 minutes before 7:00 EDT
