The one thing is sure for me. Eventualy (soon) Dollar will drop very hard as it rally was almost without any correction. I woludn't be surprise if we see next week 1.65 in GBP... but don't follow what i saying. I'm still watching the market.

that's gonna be 400 pip in a week? a bit hard to swallow... unless there's major events, e.g. another independence referendum happening.

maybe i is to far, but i remember one day after us market close, when Bernanke was holding a press conference and he said just one stupid sentence and eur/usd was go up almolst 400 pips in 20 min. This is forex. There are no rules and everything is possible.

remember gbp rally few weeks ago almost to 1.72. Everybody were excited and screeming 1.75 and more. One day and some big boys started dumping the currency..

Thats because 1. he promised earlier rate hikes (and later didnt follow through, and people were tired of his excuses) and 2. big boys already knew about Scottish Referendum and had info it was gonna be a close fight, that's why they dumped it en masse since not too sure if Scotland will remain or leave UK. . . Bernanke is different from Yellen though... yea he was really a market mover, she on the other hand cant seem to move markets as much (yet).

Dont you remember theres rumors of carney saying "It's just a joke" when queried on the never coming rate hike? later they said it was his twitter account hacked or something, but nobody believed him anyway since in MPC minutes he always vote against the hike and keep finding new excuses when all expectations were on track ;) his latest excuse is looking for wage earnings increase or something

Well, it dropped instead of rising to 1.6255 i guess no chance for me to reload shorts at that level for today... lol. Still holding some shorts here. Amazing how this pair keeps making new lows at this hour...
