    Additionally, there are rumors for an extra increase by the BOE. Watch their meeting. 5-4 if I recall correctly?

    I feel the most recent increase was a massive surprise and thats what keeping the Pound powerful. But I'm guessing it will go down this week, possibly retest 9500? Will see...

    I think that the latest hike was a huge surprise and thats exactly what keeping the Pound strong. But I am guessing it's going to return this week, possibly retest 9500? Will see...
    I want to see GBPUSD shoot around 2.00 so that I will short it from there. Personally, I missed the chance to short it when it hit 1.9900 2 weeks ago (but I did have a 1.9850 short at that time).

    Traded the NFP, went short what then looked like a bounce, dropped 10 pips as the big vendors should have arrived in did not.

    Yes it's been quite strange recently how a bearish news for your USD quickly goes the other way- almost like all the banks, investments houses buy up in that time to get a bargin.

    Last friday's NFP didn't have the customary reaction that people get at NFP news. It had been changed by the annual revision that showed that thousand more jobs were created during 2006 than was first reported. Thus the dollar dropped on the headline number then a delayed reaction was to buy dollar on the annual revision number.

    Ah yes, that may be the situation. Appears recently the Yen creates a U-turn not only on NFP. Durable products, ISM manufacturing, etc.. . All looked one-sided but moments later, it turns out the other way.

    Good point on the revisions. My take on this is that if the number is reported, the tide of initial reaction is bearish- and also the chart justifies it. However, as the alterations come in, people had a different abstract opinion, and quickly goes the other way.

    My take on this today when investing in the news is that do not brief the initial bounce unless the number is way out of line. Wait a couple of more minutes to get all of the news and then short the next bounce/ buy the next dip once I see a very clear imbalance between buyers/sellers.

    Not only that spread went to 200, it also went offline for most people for at least 10 minutes after the launch, this has happened few days before, but this time beeing ready I decided to not set any stops which was a few smart choice on my part I must say ( not to brag or anything), the only reason im with oanda is my comparatively modest account and the fact that they're quite dependable for filling the orders.
