1.GBP Weakness

I closed my GBPUSD trade at 10pm GMT last night as it had moved through the support line and Easter is approaching. This trade yielded a gain of 2.49% on a risk of 1%.
I also closed my GBPNZD trade at the same time due to yesterday being a sideways day for the pair. This pair yielded a gain of 0.35% on a risk of 0.5%.

2. JPY Weakness

Stop at breakeven. The USDJPY is edging up slowly. I will exit tonight at 10pm GMT if not before.

3. The FTSE100

I will revisit this instrument next week.

4. Oil

As oil falls for the third day, USDCAD edges up. I will exit tonight at 10pm GMT if not before. It would be nice to see all the post-Fed USD decline reverse by a regain of the 1.3330 level.

5. Watch List

The EURUSD short worked. The S&P500 will be revisited next week. The Nekkei will be monitored in the run up to the next BoJ meeting in April.


Japan – Tokyo Core CPI y/y later tonight.
US Final GDP y/y is important but I recommend you do NOT trade tomorrow or Monday as volumes will be thin and markets prone to swing between total inactivity and wild volatility.
