I was a little bit frustrated on the Friday trading, just before the US NFP release where I was about to the trade the news. 15 minutes before the golden 8:30 time, my internet connection experienced connection problems. Around this time I was about to place to pending orders on my MT4 platform, one a buy stop at 1.4260 and the other a sell stop at 1.4238 and expecting either one of my pending order will be striked by the market strong movements.
But it all went by the minutes and the hours and I missed over 50 pips opportunity. My internet connection resumed normal operation just after midnight Brunei time or just after lunch in New York. I attacked the market quite late and managed to enter the market just about the 38.2% level retracements and I bailed out the market approximately 40 minutes before the closing time. I bagged around 30 pips profit, and by this time the spread on the EURUSD have widened by 5 pips.
Anyway a good week for the start of the month. I hope to trade good trades in the coming weeks. Until then happy fasting month of Ramadhan and happy weekend.
