Diamonds Trading Signals Trade Plan

Australia Interest Rate - 12:30am NY time (Tuesday, August 4)

--–––––————————————————————–––––--​

Traded currency pair:AUDUSD
Initial spike duration limit:15 seconds
Initial spike price action threshold:20 pips
Triggering retracement percentage:35 %
Retracement duration limit:60 seconds
Maximum trade hold time after release:15 minutes
Stop loss:15 pips
Take profit:15 pips
Maximum spread:3 pips


  1. If between 12:30:00am and 12:30:15am, so during the first 15 seconds you see AUDUSD move up or down by 20 pips or more, then enter in the direction of the initial spike at the very first 35% retracement if it doesn't take more than 60 seconds (till 12:31:00am) – 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 20 pips during the first 15 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 12:45:00am, 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.
