Get The Trades Via Twitter – And Comments

A really nice spike in the U.S dollar today ( considering I’ve been long for days now ) with several trades paying off well. As well (specifically) foreseen weakness in GBP coming to fruition here overnight. I invite anyone who isn’t already following on twitter or “the comments section” here at the blog to join/follow as there are lots of great info from other traders here as well.

It’s been interesting to see this move higher in USD in line with “risk on” activity in markets today but then again not so unusual. We’ve seen equities and USD running in tandem several times over the past few months as hot money from Japan is converted in / and out of US in order to buy and sell stocks.


Glad it’s the weekend here as I’ll be diving / snorkeling. Have a great weekend everyone!

      Well Ze – If I was a “trade service” – the average reader likely couldn’t afford me right!

      Unfortunately ( and for the time being ) I’m not getting into every single “tick” of my specific trades, as I fully understand what kind of a “rat’s nest” this can create. I started the blog from a creative perspective, hoping to help others “peel the onion” on forex, and markets / finance in general NOT to haggle with people over “every single pip”.

      For the most part my tweets and “cryptic/hidden” comments are pretty straight forward for most anyone with a “basic working knowledge” of forex and the markets. As well…the idea is for readers to “improve” their knowledge and skill”.

      I will be offering a paid service shortly, with the full expectation that – you’ll get your money’s worth!

      For now Ze…..get in here / and slug it out with the rest of us!

        What a great answer. I am not your average trader nor your average woman.
        I am trading out of HK, living in HK where you have some of the most sophisticated borrowers and investors in the world. Time is money and money is all is here.
        However, after loosing money to the legalized robbers such as HSBC and UBS they so called wealth mgmt which they gamble with your money like a Macau Casino, I am not taking care of my money. I am very much interested in the AUD.USD and the EUR.AUD as they are trading nicely with the HKD. However, I do need some mentoring as this AUD can chop fingers from time to time.
        I am with you shorting the AUD. This is what I understand you are doing.
        I am not so much a chart lady ‘I called my method PHD -which stands for “PUSH HERE DUMMY” for a Harvard PHD it seems to work until it slap me in face.
        I find it fun to follow you. I will be very happy to learn from you. After 18 years in HK I think like Chinese, sometime act like them but do not have slanted eyes.
        I love the resort you leave in.
        me you can imagine at the very top water front just on top of the HK Marina Club.

          One thing I place considerable value on – is knowing / having friends with “boots on the ground”. Your 18 years living in HK has me very jealous, as it’s one of those places I’ve always wanted to visit but “juuuust haven’t gotten around to yet”.

          I’m sure we can all learn alot from you here, and I encourage you to not only “follow along” but to contribute / write / comment as to your experience there, and with respect to your trading. It’s great having you on board!

          Now – yes I am currently building a positions with a “long USD” angle ( including a short AUD/USD ) but fully understand that things are “currently hanging in the balalnce” with the U.S Gov / Debt ceiling etc….

          AUD is crawling….as are many currencies so……I am adding smaller orders “over time” and just letting this move along slowly. My only concern is that “risk” will likely take a small bounce higher ( including AUD ) when U.S gets it’s act together so…..we just go “easy” here a little while longer.

          PHD – I love it!

    Thanks Kong. Enjoy the weekend. Another hard fought but profitable week. Always appreciate the insight. I cashed out of everything today just because…well…I felt like it. Starting next week in cash, and in general, a USD long mindset and perhaps a reload of yen longs…..possibly another ES short. I wouldn’t be terribly surprised though to see a scratchy climb for a couple days at the beginning of the week.

    Enjoy the sun man. I am looking forward to going to work in the dark and coming home from work in the the coming months. Yay Canada…..enter slit wrists and sad face….haha

    Dr, Kong this is a crazy market. ME once reported that isaw the riskoff but couldn’t see them taking their money into usa. A look closer showed they were actually moving it to europe last week, so ijoined by eurcad and took +130 pips again ijoined buy nzdjpy, this one zigzaged but ijumped out with +80 pips. Those monies gone into japan last week seem to be coming to america right now especially canadian dollar. we will see if politics in america will allow that happen. you riskoff Iriskon and we both come out profitable. This IS A CRAZY market .
    Enjoy you weekend.

      The market is insane!! Absolutely nuts! Wacko!

      So it’s important to “scale back” during these times and reduce position sizes, then things don’t appear “quite as crazy”.

      Yes – hot money out of Japan is the major source of funding here these days, so ebb and flow in JPY looks to be of greater significance than USD really.

      U.S won’t default – but that won’t means “stocks/risk to the moon” – or at least I don’t think so.

      Be safe man!

    Will be going on the Dollar, just feel it’s a bit early. Half a whiff and I’ll be in tho.

    • Forex Kong October 6, 2013 / 1:47 pm

      You bet…..I’m always early.

      Nice work Andy – I’m sure you’ll do well on this one.
