So I learned from school that on a Friday afternoon London New York crossover it is normally quiet. Luckily my S/L were in place and the spike did not really affect my GBPJPY trade that stayed in its channel… for the time being. Seems that support is being hammered.
I did not watch the calendar closely earlier, but see now what caused the over reaction. So who scored 80 - 200 pips with the spike?
