Diamonds Trading Signals Trade Plan​

USA Existing Home Sales ⋯ 10:00am NY time (Monday, March 21)


Traded currency pairUSDJPY
Initial spike duration limit30 seconds
Initial spike price action threshold12 pips
Triggering retracement percentage40 %
Retracement duration limit80 seconds
Maximum trade hold time after release15 minutes
Stop loss10 pips
Take profit10 pips
Maximum spread2 pips

  1. If between 10:00:00am and 10:00:30am, so during the first 30 seconds you see USDJPY move up or down by 12 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 80 seconds (till 10:01:20am) – 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 12 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 10:15:00am, 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.
