Well yea, i was really lucky. I had opened this position between 8am and 9am this morning based on my analysis. I was also aware of the big impact news coming for the GBP at 2pm.
It was 2pm, the news was released and even though i didn’t quite understand it, i saw the cable drop 100 pips in 4 minutes. The luck i had… i went short! If the market rose, i would have lost 30 pips according to my stop, but i was lucky and in the right direction of the market.
Forex is not luck, but today, this was pure luck i would say, or intuition in the right direction? I don’t know.
