8-a test of 64 again, i did not take the yellow on the spike down because the bias is down and this could easily break hard down, i would rather take the pullbacks to short
9-so once it pulled back up i had shorted earlier at 80 price under the tma i entered. 74 seemed like a good exit, went past it thought it might break down lower but stalled so i took the pips.
6- bias was down i took the short went against me i exited
7- same as above but the price got into the zone on the 5min on the pullback, i got in late at 80 but i remember from asia session last night the rest. area was two places, 74 and 64. so those are key areas for me right now until this changes.

11- on the 5min i saw a ton of support here so when it spiked to it i jumped in fast and when i saw 2.5 pips i exited.
12- then i waited for a little pullback, felt might get a bounce at 00 so i shorted there in the direction of the move and grabbed a couple more for the day. Now i am finished...
9- got yellow to short back into the trend but it moved higher on the london close. so i took a loss.
10- yellow kept popping up so i knew this wanted to reverse back down. I was thinking 35 at the dp for a bounce down but the price stalled at 30 i jumped in with a few other traders and held this, some exited at 25 others 21 but i felt a test of the 10 area was coming. so i held exited at 12. I will call it a day...
6- support had built at 10 i had a previous yellow i missed so i took a trade at 10 again and grabbed a few.
7- it broke down quick jumped in a buy got executed at 07 looking for 10 it broke against me and i exited.
8- got yellow at 00 i again got in another buy and rode it up, this trade went all the way to 30.
5- the trend is down so i was looking for a pullback up and a stall in price to short, grabbed a few more here. You can see on the 5min chart where the price got into the trade zone here for the short setup. This is a HP trade!!!! Should have held it a bit longer to the test of 18 or so....
4- trend is down now but got yellow to buy i tought a test of 21 would be a good target to exit it went against me again and again i held, looking for it to come back up and get me out BE. which i did. yellow is working sometimes you time it perfectly and other times it drifts against you. Now waiting for the next trade hopefully an up move to short...
2- took the 50sma bounce though at first i missed the initial touch, then i got in, went against me but i felt in this slower market it might come back to me and when i saw a couple pips i exited quickly as it seemed to want to go down to the daily pivot

12- pure speculation that the price was going to try and drop to 1.4250 but i exited at the recent low of 68.
13-got RED to short, i felt 86 was a good spot to short from so when it touched it i shorted got in 84 kept hitting 81 up 81 up 81 up finally i just exited grabbed some more pips because london close was coming and sure enough it dropped another 8 pips, figures... always the case right....
9-there is the drop, i jumped in a buy usually the usd likes to stall around 94 and a bounce to 00, when it broke against me i exited as this could easily fall another 50 so i did not want to get caught.
10-same trade, started to move up again, when the price got to the 95 area where it had just stalled i exited and made back the money i lost
11- it went higher and i shorted at 00, should have held but grabbed some more pips to the count.
7- earlier the price had stalled at like 19 so when it hit i jumped in quick it shot up and i exited in a second. quick trade. Do not try this at home....
8- it broke that support and i jumped in a sell thinking is was going to break down hard, it did but i got tired of waiting and exited basically BE. man this trade pissed me off as i felt the drop was coming. it went down right after thissssssssssssssssss
1- shorts are in play, red to short, i waited and exited when i got yellow
2- then i closed and opened a buy off the yellow and grabbed 2 the other way
the 5min chart those the zone the thumbs up area to short from, my next possible bounce area is marked with the X, for a reversal up depending on the speed of the move.

9- these are the trades i love, red then i got the yellow and shorted from the 25 and down in and out quick.
10- same trade pushed higher got yellow, thought it would test the 25 again so i waited for the exit, i was with the trend so i held a bit longer.
6- 25 was the recent low so i thought a nice bounce up here was eminent had yellow but it broke against me.
7- priced stalled at 15 still yellow took the buy at 16 and it was touch and go finally saw 21 and took it.
8- then yellow again for another buy at 06, counter trend think this was going to tank down hard, when i saw 10 i jumped out only to watch it slowly climb to 30's

I took a bunch of trades during fomc and did well on the pip count but they were too fast to mark and post. I was doing some work heard the yellow audio alert go off. I checke the 5min chart and saw that support has been formed at 21 as a bounce area, the yellow alert started at 25 but i waited to get a push to the 21 figuring that would be a solid bounce area. So here is the trade to start off the night.
5-expecting a bounce off the 50sma, dow had just opened and went positive so up it went did not close it right away, i got a pullback down to 62 and exited and
6- bought on the same trade, rode that up to the spike up around 80.
7-took the short off the yellow

3- where i took a short and grabbed 2.5 more

NY was a slow day, took a few other trades nothing great,
picked up 8 pips on a couple of scalps off the yellow. Again the market is slow and rangy or choppy. when it is like this with a little patience and good entries the yellow reversals are very HP trades.
