Review week 45

Result: 0R while I was up on open positions in the beginning of the week by 3,2R.

So what happened?

Well, US elections that's what.

I said in last post that I might step to the side lines and I did. On Wednesday at the end of the London session a lot of unwinding of open positions seamed to happen as everybody wanted to be squared before the outcome US presidential elections. At that moment the polls were very close to call a clear winner in the elections. This all meant risk off. So I got out at a combined position of 0R.

So here are the charts for reference. E = entry, S = stop

USDCAD

USDJPY

Silver

Gold

Looking ahead at week 46


Based on ichimoku analysis I will be looking for these trades with entries according to my trading method:

Long: USDCAD, USDCHF, USDJPY
Short: EURUSD, GBPUSD
