Yeah I'm already in on usd/jpy from a few days a go. Pending orders for me are eur/gbp, gbp/chf (and aud/usd from a few days ago).
As for news releases, well I decided when I first started with this method, that I wouldn't pay any attention to them and just trade them regardless, (although I don't trade on NFP days and any UK/USA public holidays). I don't know how my stats would have differed if I decided not to trade on news release days.
What I can say is I am over 21% up on my demo account in a little over 5 months. Not stellar I know, but what I am happiest with, is that the fact it has been mostly steady growth. Plus I'm only risking 1%. If/when I go live, I will be looking to risk 2%, which of course would have meant a 42% increase in about 5 months. Now that's not too shabby!
I've never had more than of 4 or 5 losses in a row. I often find both wins and losses come in spurts.
How long have you been trading this? Are you live or demo? How successful have you been?
