Diamonds Trading Signals Trade Plan

USA Nonfarm Payroll ⋯ 8:30am NY time (Friday, June 7)


Traded currency pairUSDJPY
Initial spike duration limit30 seconds
Initial spike price action threshold25 pips
Triggering retracement percentage30 %
Retracement duration limit90 seconds
Maximum trade hold time after release15 minutes
Stop loss15 pips
Take profit15 pips
Maximum spread3 pips

  1. If between 08:30:00am and 08:30:30am, so during the first 30 seconds you see USDJPY move up or down by 25 pips or more, then enter in the direction of the initial spike at the very first 30% retracement if it doesn't take more than 90 seconds (till 08:31:30am) – and if spread is at 3 pips or less. Set stop/loss at 15 pips, and set take/profit at 15 pips immediately.

  2. If the move either up or down was less than 25 pips during the first 30 seconds, then the actual number of the report did not generate sufficient interest in the market, and you simply skip the trade.

  3. If by 08:45:00am, so 15 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.
