So, as to what i said yesterday i rest my case, this morning at 5AM (CET) The kuroda speech went by silently on the charts, tokyo kept it frosty ... 30 minutes into new york we can see the americans are a lot more prone to making noise on news events.. The lash, it was at 103 for a bit so all who went short and put a tight stop loss lost out here, then it slammed down so all who went long and put a tight stop loss lost out here.. Noisy americans .... i mean statistical noise ofcourse, never would i dare imply the straightforwardness of the american bizzo could be perceived as rude and loud, noisy and shameless by foreigners :p so the markets can be predicted to a certain extent to behave in the same patterns under the same conditions, a LOT of of the time, MOST of the time, there's no 100% in forex, i dont know where i got that, maybe in a book a got after reading an interview with warren buffet (the fact that markets always react in the same way to the same stuff, the rest i improvised on that myself). Kudos, i made a few pips, but not on Kuroda-san, it was like icey frosty, about 5 pip range movement this morning ... while these events turn out well mostly for me if i stick to the main trend and dont put 'tight' stop losses, HOWEVER, trade how YOU feel comfy, not how i say i do, it might cause you to stress out and die of heart attack, im not human after all ;-)

Its not going down yet its ranging, if you give it a personality you could say its waiting for tomorrows date to decide, if all comes in red it might shoot down. i cant draw fibos on the charts to attach here so i uploaded two screenshoys . alleycat.be/publicstuff/daily.png. shows the range on the daily chart (i hear markets tend to be ranging 80% of the time, i havent checked that myself on every possible chart and combination though. and here on the hourly. alleycat.be/publicstuff/hourly.png. you can see it's sticking to the 38 fib retracement level, i dont expect it to move very much until tomrrow, just range between somewhere 102.7 and 103 max unless tokyo has a big surprise and Kuroda-san makes an announcement that was unexpected. Tokyo tends to react a lot less panickey than new york does (in general .... you know in forex there is never a 100% chance of anything happening at any given time, there is this guy who said markets tend to react in the same way to the same events every time, a long time ago in a galaxy far away but he seems to have been right about it). Normally the BOJ statements dont bring big surprises since they have a clear policy on what they're doing. . For instance if Kuroda-san would , out of the blue, say the easing stops today i.o. going on until at least q4 2015, then you would see a reation overnight but it still wouldnt be a 150pip or more reaction (normally , overall from what i have observed in three years) whereas if the american fed makes an unexpected one during new york/london crossover time you get these whiplash movements on the charts which i call 'stoplosskillers' in my own jargon where the bar lashes out both up and down in a span of minutes or less. All these things come through observation i spend a lot of time watching the screen :)

Thanks for the good info Jo. Really appreciate it. We shall wait and see. The target is on NFP according to me. That's the one that will make a major move.
