    What was the reason of the spike today at 13.00 GMT? Especially the GBPUSD moved violently...
    There was nothing in the news calendar, so obviously I missed something today... I was definitely not the only one, because the server of Forex Factory collapsed within those minutes!

    I'm still not sure what caused it either, I know I lost my fair share in the EUR/USD today though.

    Something seems to have made the USD happy.

    Maybe the word of the Amero currency merger finally leaked out. :D

    Yesterday's Move Was Incredible

    EUR/USD greatly surprised me. I took time to carefully observe the movement and it was indeed incredible.

    I think I figured out your plan. You didn't spend so much time in inventing the Amero for nothing!

    Your short term target is to become the president of the US Central bank.

    Medium term target is to become the president of the US.

    Long term plan to join the Continent and become the Amero President.

    Very long term plan to conquer the world and set Egypt as the Capital of the world and become the new Pharaoh, the king of the World;)

    My guess would be Market Makers created that spike to trigger SL to "lighten" the market.

    But then again, it could be due entirely to breaking news of the Amero : )

    Now that you've blown the cover on my secret master plan for world domination, you'll have to meet with a terribly unfortunate accident. No one will suspect anything. After all, people do get pecked to death by wild flocks of Canadian loons every day, right?

    I have a curse exchange program with the Canadian government. When they want someone to die horribly, that person gets stung by 1000 scorpions. Since this is a very non-Canadian way to die, no one suspects the Canadian government of arranging the terribly unfortunate natural accident.
