Here’s this week’s update:
Weekly Narrative: This week was a very interesting week. It was called a “Flash Crash” in the media. Many pairs experienced enormous spreads and spikes. As an example, the AUD/NZD have moved over 1250 pips in a few seconds, see here https://www.screencast.
In 15 years of trading, Andrew has never seen such a massive spike in the market like this. As mentioned, an event like this is completely out of anyone’s control. Four of our manually managed trades closed at a large loss, due to a margin call, because of this Flash Crash.
All other trading is trending upwards, just this backward step with this market movement not seen in the past 15 years. If there are any positives from this, it’s that the open drawdowns are now reduced by almost half onwards and upwards.
