    Hey folks,

    Awhile back when we broke through 1.3150 again, I said the EUR/USD would likely rally to around 1.3800. I've actually mentioned that level a few times and we finally saw it get there Sunday night and top out. Now I think the technicals are finally lining up with the long term technicals I brought up two weeks ago:

    http://www.forexpeacearmy.com/forex...rket-update-09-22-2010-long-term-insight.html

    I've been waiting for the good chance for a position trade short on the Euro for quite some time and it seems like now's the time. I'm short on the EUR/USD for a position trade (got it not long ago around 1.3670) with a 200-300 pip SL. I tend to manage my position trades with a bit of grid trading so I don't mind if we get a bit of a rally today (I think we may) as I'm set to sell into that rally.

    AU Monday had no trade on Retail Sales, but there was a huge selloff on the surprise decision to keep rates unchanged. My guess was a 70 pip spike, but it turned out to be 80, so I was close. AUD should be relatively weak until the London close in the NY morning, so any retracements on either AUD/USD (0.9620, or 0.9640) should present good selling opportunities if a rally happens to mount. In news Tuesday:

    0428 UK Services PMI (51.0 expected) - Sometimes this can move slow and steady other times it's quick and sharp. You never can be too sure which style will show up; however, in general a smaller deviation of 0.5 to 0.9 has a better chance of moving slowly (3-15 minutes) towards a 40 pip or so target, while a 1.0+ deviation should hit a 50 pip target and may do so more quickly.

    --If it comes out at 51.6 or higher, GBP/USD should rally 40-50 pips
    --If it comes out at 50.4 or lower, GBP/USD should drop 40-50 pips

    Hello Sir Pipsalot and thanks.

    I did add a post to one of your updates a while back, but maybe you didn't see it.
    The emails that are sent out to notify that you have added a new thread or any thread has been updated are sent out at 8AM UK time (7AM GMT). I believe that is 3AM New York time.
    That means that if you post a thread anytime after 3AM NY, no notification is sent out until the next day at 3AM.
    I received the notification off yesterday's post just over half-hour ago and so obviously by then the Australian news was old news.
    Is there anyway that this can be changed so that we are notified at the time that you make the post?

    Thanks for all you do
