As you know I tend to trade with a longer term outlook, I can wait for a confirmation of the delta low (using the 4 bar system that would currently give a "buy" signal on a break of 9110)
or start to build a position now, the trade sizes I am entering are half my normal as I have to allow for a 100-200 pip move against the position.
Believe me I am not particularly comfortable right now, but I'm going to stick with my trading plan for now
Swissy is obviously going for the 1.1000 level, there is a .382 fib just above there at 1.1028

i see the daily RSI on GU is now the lowest in 10 yrs. does anyone have a clue why it is collapsing like this? i mean seems completely insane that a currency can keep dropping like this continuously for so many days

A man with a plan. Thanks for the viewpoint. Will you just keep lowering your stops then and add on the way down?

Something to make you smile
I know we're all going mental waiting for the turn, so I thought I'd post this to see if anyone has thought like this themselves. Sorry if it's been posted before.
I really need a good laugh at the moment.

LOL Ian, I am laughing hard looking at your chart. Maybe we are in number 8 in your chart here, thinking it's already an absolute bottom?

It has dropped for 10 consecutive trading days, not including today. According to Jamie's analysis on this website, it is only the second time this has occured since the 1970s.

The move has gathered more momentum and support as technical levels on the downside were taken out with ease, commodity prices have continued to drop and equity markets show tentative signs of stabilisation. The combination of these factors have really created a seemingly unstoppable move down and a massive shift in sentiment.
I am holding small long at 1.87 from yesterday, which I will add to with a same sized at 1.85. I am not comfortable entering into a full long position until there are some signs of bullishness on the charts.
I agree with Cmellon's view, that we are likely to see a further big move to the downside before any retracement should EURUSD go to 1.44 area. It is highly ulikely that we will see a big move to the downside in EURUSD and a significant bounce in GBPUSD at the same time.
Are you in any trades at the moment Upadrasta?

Ian, That is brilliant. Literally am laughing out loud here!!!
It's like my exact thought patterns to the market!!!
