Valeria's father managed to recover from a heart attack he suffered a few months ago, but he couldn't make it this time after suffering a new attack.

 

We know Valeria was very attached to him and that she is suffering…

TREND BUSTER Trade #8

I just got a signal LONG EURUSD @1.4228, SL @1.4178, TP @1.4343 & 1.4438

 

I did not jump right in but instead entered a first lot LONG @1.4223, SL @1.4173, TP @1.4338 & 1.4433.

 

Will try to add the second lot for this trade lower if we get a pullback to the 1.4200 area.

Statement Apr.5

This is the first statement since deposit. It includes a trade taken on last week's re-entry signal from Friday, today's EURUSD trade (made a mistake & closed it earlier by accident, had to re-open it later) & a cable trade taken on a different strategy (which I'm planning to present on the blog soon as well). Currently I'm below 1% profit.

Starting the day

Hi all and welcome back! Leaving aside Pound, majors´prices are mostly unchanged compared to Asian opening. The Euro is slightly lower as quite negative Retail Sales data hit the euro zone, along with more Portugal jitters, sending yields back to the sky. Still, the downside remains pretty much limited: and educated guess would say buyers are not yet ready to give up or profit: we will probably remain on hold until Thursday ECB rate decision.

 

Pound soared over the last couple…

European CDS consolidate

Portugal - Germany 5yr CDS spread 20bps wider at 600 (new record wide) while cash is a mere 5bps wider.

That means Portugal trades wider than Ireland for the first time since August.

The corrective sentiment shown on the Sector Financial Index  2.5bps wider at 132.

The cross is finding it hard to maintain bullish momentum and has recently peaked since the interest rate move from the ECB may already be priced in.
