I Need A Break

Posted by wingstar on November 23, 2014 at 11:40 PM Comments comments (0)

After 8 years of hosting this site, my trading style, business interests and personal life, have all changed.  I'm sure yours have as well.  For those who don't know, I started this site as a means of communication wth those for whom I managed an account.  Rather than communicate by email, with each one, I would just post my trade plan.  One of my clients at the time, programmed the auto click we use today for the sole purpose of allowing me to trade on multiple computers across my network.  A side benefit allowed anyone, anywhere in the world to plug in and get my signal so I began to share in exchange for broker input to benefit all..  Market conditions, US regulation, and unreliable brokers, contributed to my decision to no longer manage traders accounts.

You don't need me anymore.   Forex News Gun is a free full featured auto click that provides data display and user selectable triggers that go far beyond what I have been providing for the past eight years.  Most all of you have it and if not, you can get it here:  http://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex-forum/forex-news-gun/23015-introduction-forex-news-gun-diamonds-trading-signals.html?s=96843e9b45080cf5416f87d1fdbf0022


I need to step back for a while.  I don't wish to close down the site or our trade room, but would like to taper back to only the most high impact five star news trades that remain, such as jobs reports, interest rate decisions (that have a chance) and maybe advance GDP.  That means I'm not leaving.


I would like to draw from our own group of users, someone who would be willing to take over writing the blog and write a trade plan for any news that we may have been trading plus any news that may be worth a try.  December liquidity is pretty poor and I have a lot of travel lined up so I would like to find a blogger pretty soon.  If you have experience news trading please email me at wingstarfx@gmail.com and let's talk.  If you have a high end news feed and are able to provide a premium signal, I may be able to provide the interface.


My interests have taken me to a new market which promises to be more profitable than news trading is now.  If you have known me over the years, you know i like to share a good thing if I find it, and I will when the time is right.


At 4:00 am EST Germany will release IFO Business Climate.  Expected at 103.0 after a prior 103.2,  I will set up on EURUSD with a trigger of 1.5.  I will open the room but will not be able to be there.  If you are a regular in the room for most every trade, please contact me as well.  I need extra traders who can open the trade room in my absense or Pipstar's absense.


Good Luck Everybody!

At 8:30 am EST the US will release Core Retail Sales.  Expected at .2 after a prior -.2,  I will set up on USDJPY with a trigger of .7.   (Caution......US data has shown very little movement on significant deviations.  Historical deviations in my opinion are too old to rely on in the current economic environment).

Analysts and traders expect goberment data sheduled for release Friday to show natural gas inventories rose by more than typical levels for this time of the year. Acording to the average forecast of 15 analysts surveyed by The Wall Street Journal we have:

 

 

Previous: 91 Bcf

Expected: Tomorrow.

Range: 21 Bcf

High estimate: 46 Bcf

Low estimate: 25 Bcf

Friday November 7th 2014- The Jobs Report

Posted by wingstar on November 6, 2014 at 10:25 PM Comments comments (1)

At 8:30 am EST the US will release the Change in Non Farm Payroll report and Unemployment report.  We will trade the change.   Expected at 235K after a prior 248K,  I will set up on our reference currency of USDJPY with a trigger of 30K.   Be aware that Canada will be releasing their Employment change at the same time.  Straddle is a reasonable method of entry for this release. You may also trade XAUUSD (gold) or EURUSD or GBPUSD by reversing your buy and sell buttons on your auto click.

 

Good Luck Everybody!
