Happy Thanksgiving Dennis.

If America didn’t exist, we’d have to invent it anyway.

Expecting to see CHF move to the bottom of SW ranking

Surely you mean the top of S/W along with JPY

When you sell USD you are buying CHF

Those huge moves certainly crossed the MA’s which will affect the ratings next week.

Hi Dennis, can you believe this thread has almost been going 6 years lol

I wanted to ask you what your entry requirements are? Do you enter when you feel it is right or when exact metrics and conditions are met?

I like this strategy and tend to only go short when the markets are falling below the JPY.

I know people will use this strategy in their own ways I am just wondering about entries and exits.

Thank you

Matt

I thought the day after Thanksgiving was a slow day in the markets. Instead of black Friday, we got a Red Friday, Major selloff in stocks, Crypto, and Yen pairs, When the dust cleared we had Yen #1 and AUD #8, Classic risk-off currency rankings. Now the question was this a one-day correction or might it last a bit longer

I try not to have my entry requirements carved in stone as the market is always changing, Basic entry is enter a new trade as soon as it becomes a Top Trade, 100 pip stop loss ( everyone knows I hate stops) Take profits on half position at 100 pips and let the rest run. I do not take every trade that SW gives us. I am also active in other markets and spend my time and money were I expect to get the most return

Hope this helps

Small up day for Yen pairs following Friday’s blood bath, but nothing I am seeing tells me the selling of Yen pairs is over

Another sell-off in stocks but the Swiss Franc is holding up well. Anyone here with some insight into the Franc, I am looking at this currency as a possible long term buy and hedge against US inflation

Hi again

Can I ask why you use the JPY as the denominator and not say the US or GBP if in the UK?

Does it matter which of the 8 currencies is used for this purpose?

Also, how would you describe to someone how you trade?

Hope the questions are alright, have a great week!

Funny going back several years and seeing what I said, I try to be consistent and what I said 5 years ago should be on point with what I said yesterday. But I am only human and sometimes I need to read my own past post to keep on course

How do you enter this, as from the sw table. Gbp seems stronger than nzd?

Yen pairs started the day positive but then about noon NYT someone hit the sell button and everything crashed,
