    Diamonds Trading Signals Trade Plan​

    UK GDP ⋯ 4:30am NY time (Wednesday, April 10)

    ⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯⋯​

    Traded currency pair GBPUSD
    Initial spike duration limit 20 seconds
    Initial spike price action threshold 20 pips
    Triggering retracement percentage 30 %
    Retracement duration limit 90 seconds
    Maximum trade hold time after release 20 minutes
    Stop loss 10 pips
    Take profit 10 pips
    Maximum spread 2 pips

    1. Set up single click execution on your broker platform, and if possible, pre-determine default stop/loss and default take/profit to 10 pips, so that when you click to execute your order, your platform will automatically set your stop/loss and take/profit at 10 pips from your entry price. Do not try this with brokers that don’t offer single click execution.

      If your platform does not allow to pre-determine default stop/loss and take/profit, then after entering the trade, simply set the stop/loss and take/profit points manually.

    2. Pull up either tick, 1-second, 3-second, or 5-second chart, and at 04:29:45am, so 15 seconds before the announcement, start paying very close attention to the price action of GBPUSD on your chart.

    3. If between 04:30:00am and 04:30:20am, so during the first 20 seconds after the report, you see GBPUSD move up or down by 20 pips or more, then enter in the direction of the initial spike at the very first 30% retracement if it occurs in 90 seconds from release time (till 04:31:30am) – and if spread at the time of your entry is at 2 pips or less. Set stop/loss at 10 pips, and set take/profit at 10 pips.

      The retracement will happen within seconds. Don’t draw anything on your chart, and don’t try to get a perfect entry. As soon as you see approximately 30% retracement on your chart, compared to the initial spike, click to enter without any hesitation.

      If the move either up or down was less than 20 pips during the first 20 seconds, then the actual number of the report did not generate sufficient interest in the market, and you simply skip the trade. If your spread at the time of desired entry is more than 2 pips, then skip the trade.

    4. If by 04:50:00am, so 20 minutes after the report release, neither your stop/loss nor your take/profit points were hit, then close the trade automatically at market price of the time.


    Previous Example: on January 25 2013, at 4:30am, UK GDP number was released, so in the first 20 seconds, the price of GBPUSD spiked down by 42.1 pips from 1.58097 to 1.57676. Then price started retracing, and within about 90 seconds retraced to 20% level of 1.57759 but it didn't continue retracing. This retracement was lower than trade plan's minimal 30% level so we didn't enter the market.


    Be patient, and do at least 20 "second wave" trades, before getting frustrated and quitting.

    Once you become good at it, you will be able to win on average 7 to 8 out of 10 trades.

    Keep win to loss ratio at 1:1. Tweak it only after you are consistently profitable with 1:1.

    Remember, it does not matter whether you make or lose 10 pips or 100 pips on a trade. What matters is how much money you make or lose on a trade. When risking 10 pips, simply put up 10 times more lots than you would when you risk 100 pips, and at the end you will make or lose the same amount of money. Yes, spread to pips targeted ratio matters, but these news "second wave" moves have such high probability of success that they somehow make up for the very high spread to pips targeted ratio (2 to 10), which is a small miracle in itself.
