    Diamonds Trading Signals Trade Plan​

    USA GDP ⋯ 8:30am NY time (Friday, October 26)


    Traded currency pair USDJPY
    Initial spike duration limit 30 seconds
    Initial spike price action threshold 10 pips
    Triggering retracement percentage 40 %
    Retracement duration limit 90 seconds
    Maximum trade hold time after release 15 minutes
    Stop loss 10 pips
    Take profit 10 pips
    Maximum spread 2 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 10 pips or more, then enter in the direction of the initial spike at the very first 40% retracement if it doesn't take more than 90 seconds (till 08:31:30am) – and if spread is at 2 pips or less. Set stop/loss at 10 pips, and set take/profit at 10 pips immediately.

    2. If the move either up or down was less than 10 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.
