@Serge Arkhipenko, That is fine. The market is slow now due to US and Canada Labor Day Holiday. However, I don't think it will go down very much now. It might go down slightly but within next 2-4 hours the trend will be up and will continue next few hours hopefully till one hour before UK Construction PMI news. Then the new trend will come after that news. Again we will have to look closely about interest rate rising in the UK. If the interest rates raise, GBP/USD will go up to 1.69 in a few days. Another things is that dollar index is now at the highest peak with the strong USD news but it will not last long. So we will find the change of trend sooner than later I think. Be careful what you should do and what you shouldn't do.

Thanks for a developed reply, with this attitude you should be a good trader. I am only learning so far, but I try to develop my own system on the basis of multiple signals. So far I don't really pay much attention to news, but they are a good signal to identify moments when you should be at least careful with your trading. But I agree to what you say.
