I will go long at 1.6562 or near, i expect correction at this point, then up. In other words, during EU setion i will go short, and preparing to exit in the US setion and news to go up.

@Alex Shefer, To speak frankly, I have started trading in the forex market about 2 months ago. I have already lost around $1000 but all that happened due to my ignorance. Now I am very determined not to lose money anymore. I have already spent a lot of time to research and understand the market. At present I am also spending a lot of time to research and understand the market. This is indeed a hard job to understand the forex market where 95% traders are loser and only 5% are winners. So to be among those 5% winners is not that easy job. However, I am trying and I am more stable now. Even I have started making profits now. I hope to continue it for long time.

@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.

That is great if you can learn everything properly and can trade without the signals of others. This is really good that you will not have to depend on someone else.

Exactly, otherwise I will never become stable. And success in Forex is achieved only if you remain in stable growth over years.

Yes this is very hard to make profit here. In fact this is almost impossible to make profit here because more than 95% people are loser here as the statistics says. I also believe that this is true. I don't know what other people say. So to be counted among those 4-5% winners are really a great achievement in this respect I think.

guys, i recommend having a look at myfxbook news, link myfxbook *** com and in home tab there are the news calendar is very complete (more than here). The good thing about the news is that it tell you how much volatility is going to be at certain moment, and if you compare the price action at the moment of news with what is the expected news to come, you can now wether to keep your stop loss tight or not, things like this. I use them a lot.
